With any luck, today, Congress will vote on a health bill and we can talk about something, anything, else. I don’t see the big discussion — everyone should have access to health care, no matter what they make. At a minimum there should be 1) no denial for previous existing conditions; and 2) no one should have to pay more than one paycheck a year in deductibles and one check a year in premiums. That would mean everyone would have to pay 1/12 of their income for health care. That seems fair to me. But what do I know …. huh?
I’m sick of the whole thing and just want to get it over with. I use to be a news/politic junkie but I can’t stand it anymore. If the Democrats say the sky is blue, the Republicans will say it’s purple — and vice versa. I’m thinking it would be nice to just have a benevolent dictator — someone like Mister Rogers. Boy life would sure be different then.
