The real fear motivating the extreme voices on the right

like those on Fox News, is that health care reform will lead to progressive change that will threaten the bottom line of the folks who they work for. Progressive change may in fact be somewhat, somewhat, legitimized by the passing of the health care bill, and corporate power is doing its best to characterize what may happen as Maoism, Stalinism, or even Naziism. It's naked self interest masquerading as something having to do with actual concern over the direction of the country. If health care passes, which it did but you know, if health care passes next thing you know CEOs and talk show hosts will have to smoke a few less cigars when celebrating and kicking back.
