“Let me get this straight …”

An old college friend sent me this: Funny and sad and scary all at the same time.

Let me get this straight……we’re trying to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also is exempt from it and hasn’t read it and who smokes, with  funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.

What the hell could possibly go wrong?

Indeed.

Unfortunately, the bill passed, demonstrating once again that majorities are often wrong. Especially when the majority is made up of people who consider themselves “elite” or “progressive” like our media and Congress.
