Ever since the Dems have been discussing (and I use the term loosely) Health Care Reform they’ve had to backtrack, turn around, and backtrack again and again.
First we could keep our current insurance. Then we couldn’t.
Then we could keep our doctor. But he’s likely to retire. Ooops.
Then we would insure all Americans. Except for those we don’t.
Then we’d never experience rationing. The whole thing hasn’t even started yet, and we’re rationing swine flu vaccine. And look at those wonderful pictures of the nice sterile school cafeterias where we’re herded in like cattle, moo a little and have our arms stuck.
Then our state could opt-out. But that’s only after we’ve already paid the taxes to support health insurance for those who choose not to buy it for themselves. So, we’d pay twice. Sounds fair.
Then they said there’d be no public option. Now there is. Oooops. Who knew we’d read the bill?
Then it was imperative to do it quickly since people were dying in the streets. But it doesn’t take effect for 4 years. That’s quick?
Then it was bi-partisan ’cause one R voted for it. And all the Rs were locked out of the room where they were discussing it. My, my, how inclusive the Dem Party is. As long as you agree with them.
Then it wouldn’t cost us more, or raise the debt or deficit… then it would, but not as much.
Then the non-partisan numbers were disputed.
My head’s spinning faster than the girl in “The Exorcist” from all the turnabouts in this plan.
