Now here is one where I actually would appreciate reader commentary, since I'm too
Yeah. This one pretty much goes without saying. More costs to insurance companies, healthcare providers, businesses, and policyholders. It just sucks all around. Tell you what, let's pass a law that sucks up all sorts of costs from various sources and wonder why the economy doesn't recover!
The only thing I would add is that this seems to be a first resort (rather than a last resort) when it comes to criticizing the President.
To be honest, I'm pretty tired of hearing the "you can keep your health plan" drumbeat. We get it - the President lied. But I've heard it so much I don't care anymore. So why did I include this cartoon? Three words: Smoky the Bear. Such a well-recognized symbol of good forest stewardship whom I was introduced to in kindergarten; he makes me smile.
This. Is there anything on the news that's NOT alarmist and sensationalist anymore?
Yeah. Exactly. Never mind that the House Republicans were using their Constitutionally designated powers. Never mind that the Senate Democrats could have agreed at any time to Republican bills that authorized funding the government if only Congress's ACA exemption was lifted. Nope. It's all 100% the Republicans' fault.
I think that's enough for now. Enjoy!
