Health Care Reform

The Democrats and President Obama are trying to institute health care reform. They will create such a fucked-up mess that everyone will pay more and suffer more. Health care will benefit only people who are not very ill.

The blame lies, in my opinion, with the REPUBLICANS. For several years, they had virtual control of the legislative and executive branches of government. Everybody who thinks knows that health care is in need of reform. Republican sponsored reform would have been fucked-up too, but it would have been better than the abortion being sponsored by the Democrats now. When they had the opportunity, the Republicans simply ignored the problem. Too expensive, so we will just ignore it.

Every thinking person knows that in politics, as in everything else in life, the pendulum swings back and forth. The Republicans could not hold on to power indefinitely, so they should have addressed this issue when they had the chance.

St. Augustine on Curiosity ***
