I have recently decided to start reading the news again. I had to give it up many years ago b/c I was feeling oh so sad and angry all the time. I suppose the ole adage about, "If your not outraged then your not paying attention", holds true.
However, now it seems somehow different. Maybe it's b/c I am older and a tad less wound up*, but I just don't seem to get as angry about my government failing me. I am certainly pissed that there isn't going to be a public option/single payer system for health care, but I am also pretty damn excited if we can somehow get more coverage for people. I am also excited if we can get rid of the completely idiotic preexisting condition b.s. I am also giddy at the idea of passing legislation that says a health care company can't simply cap the amount of health care you receive in your lifetime or per year.
Now I am far from an economist, so there could be horrible fallout from these things. I am still bleeding heart. Don't you occasional have to take a win where you can? I would love to see an omnibus bill for health care reformed passed, however, don't we have to start somewhere? I dunno maybe I have lost the faith after all...
*Some will find this idea to be the height of high comedy
