Healthcare Filibuster – Cut through Republican BS!
The concept of the filibuster amazes me. To be able to talk a point to death is just plain stupid. This is why our country can’t get things done sometimes, because there are people that are willing to describe how the fungal growth on the underside of a toenail constitutes as a preexisting condition which should allow a person whod evelops cancer to be denied because there is a connection found by Dr. Nick claiming the inhaling of toe fungus fumes causes cancer…and who doesn’t like to smell their own toe fungus?!
Pardon the disgusting example, but it really is true. How are we to even consider, with so much GOP opposition to healthcare reform, that it will ever got off the senate floor? It’s wishful thinking.
Between recesses, breaks, filibuster and tea time, how are we going to get this issue solved?
Here is a list of things that need to be done:
1. Reduce the size of the Reform Bill so its readable and less prone to abuse and error.
2. Cancel all recess, etc. until the bill is fulfilled or tossed out.
3. Filibuster protection, get the thing finished already!
4. Consider the economic impact of what this bill is going to do…imagine all those working in health insurance sales or administration!
I wish congressmen had the time to browse the internet, speak to real people, take e-mails, blog, etc. They would probably see that there are more people living with anxiety due to lack of action on this situation than they think.
Something needs to be done, whether its the Republican way, or the Democrat way, I don’t care. Inaction is the worse possible course.
