I’m on vacation but I’m not completely out of touch. I know when the opponents of health reform in Washington try to repeal it. I can feel it the way Spock felt the death of his fellow Vulcans in the original Star Trek episode about the big space virus …
Anyway, they failed for the 33rd time. One would think they might want to spend more time trying to solve the very real problems of this country, but I guess that’s not all that important. I wouldn’t know for sure because I’ve never been a member of Congress.
My mother used to tell me when I was a teenager that I don’t know all the facts they’re considering, so maybe there’s more to this than 45,000 people dying every year from a lack of access to health care. Maybe it’s somehow strategically important that 50 million Americans are uninsured so that we can defeat terrorism or win the War on Drugs.
It does seem awfully important to them to get rid of this law.
Well, maybe if they keep trying the same thing with the same people they’ll somehow get a different result.
I hope not.
