One Step Closer To Disaster

Posted by Anthony on December 21, 2009

Late last night, the Senate passed a procedural vote for its health care bill. A vote on final passage is expected on Christmas Eve (how convenient). After that, the two houses of Congress would merge their bills for a final vote. Bipartisanship took no role in this 60-40 vote.

I noticed, as I watched this midnight vote occur, that Harry Reid uses emotion to put forth his case. He brought up individual constituent cases that might seem heartbreaking, but everyone has their sob story. He argues that action needs to take place now – and yet the bill takes action in 2013.

What. The. Hell.

Does that mean all those deaths from “a lack of insurance” (let’s remember that people with insurance also die) can be placed on Harry Reid for not letting the bill’s job begin earlier, like 2010?

Such a question might be too difficult for a politician to answer.
