It’s almost like those Halloween movies where you keep thinking that Michael is dead, but he keeps coming back and killing more people. I keep thinking that this terrible Healthcare bill is dead and then it makes a grisly comeback! Now we hear the rumblings of reconciliation once again. Here are some undeniable facts:
- The American people do NOT want this bill
- I haven’t heard one person say, “This is a fabulous bill!” They (and I’m talking about the Dems who are pushing the bill) will say something like, “Well, it’s not a very good bill, but sometimes you have to look the other way and just vote.”
I don’t want that kind of bill! I want a bill that causes a legislator to come out and say, “This is absolutely a great bill. It must be passed!” That’s the kind of bill we must have if 1/6 of the economy is going to be effected.
Is it a pride issue? Is the President really willing to throw his party under the bus in order to get a bad healthcare bill passed just so that he can say he got something passed? In his closing remarks he mentioned the upcoming elections as a barometer of who is right in this issue. He’s right. November 2010 will be high noon and if the Dems insist on pushing this atrocious legislation down the throat of the American people, they will face an electorate that will not only be going to cast a vote: they will be going to settle a score.
