According to Vice-President Joe Biden.
Before you Republicans get your panties in a bunch, let’s not call the kettle black. OK? While the use of the f-bomb as an adjective may be far less offensive that using it as a verb, we can all probably agree that Joe Biden and Dick Cheney could go tit for tat in terms of unintelligent dialog. While he opted for a 12-pound sledge, when a typical hammer would do, Biden hit the nail on the head. Healthcare is serious business. But a big f*cking deal? Eh. It’s all relative.
Everyone wants to know what the healthcare legislation will mean to them. For a few Republican politicians, it may mean they’re out of job come November, but I’m hopeful it simply means that a new process has begun. With everyone arguing for months about providing a perfect plan, and the current plan being far from perfect, I really had to question our motives and alternatives.
Is anything perfect? Is anything ideal? It seems to me that putting things in practice is the only way of allowing a process to begin. If it’s severely busted, it’ll be tweaked. It’s what we do here. We modify. We customize.
I wasn’t a friend or a foe of the plan. I’m an opportunist, who is looking forward to the opportunity to adapt, hear a few people tell me that it’s gonna cost my kids, bankrupt this and that, while others will say, “It’s nice to finally afford healthcare.”
In the meantime, I’d like to order up more politicians who are too dense to realize that microphones pick up everything they say!
