Health Care...Redux

I have to say that I'm glad I'm not a Democrat trying to fluff the Senate Bill, but I'm much happier I'm not a Republican trying not to look like a plutocrat while doing their shilling. You'd think, in a world where voters count, that Democrats could figure out that a Public Option polling at 60% and over versus the crappy numbers for the Senate Bill means something. That it doesn't, does mean something.

Yes, watching Rep Wiener call Republicans a "wholly owned subsidiary of the Insurance Companies" was gratifying, but the net was cast a bit narrowly since it missed a whacking big chunk of the Democratic Senate Caucus. Nope, you're not supposed to shiv your fellow Party elected officials and that is part of the problem. We do have the best health care in the world that big money can buy and we do have the best Government big money can buy. You do understand that if wealth were suffering under the health care we have that it would have been fixed long ago.

As a parent of a child with numerous pre-existing health conditions, I currently have no ability to get health care coverage for my family. Selfishly or not, that's the one thing that matters to me day in and day out. People who won't or don't use their offices to fix that are people I have no time for. That includes a lot of people, unfortunately. "Look both ways before you cross the street" isn't much of a health plan, but thanks to the delays and stupidity of the last year, it's what we're stuck with at the moment.
