I have been home today, sick with a wicked sinus infection. And the highlight of my day has been watching the theatrical stage of what is being asked to pass for a bipartisan healthcare summit.
And let me say, what an incredible waste of time and money it was.
Time keepers have been noting that the President has been talking three times the amount of the GOP membership. The Democrats in total have dominated it around twice as long. They are the ones who cried foul over minority rights for the entire time the GOP was in power, but they show no inclination to lead by example. In fact, all we have gotten today was another fine lecture as to what "we the people" need.
Never mind that there has been nothing accomplished here today. I find the saddest thing in this is, the American people are clearly against the bill in this current form. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts, they oppose it. But they are going to impose their will anyway.
We had Nancy Pelosi saying this would create 4 million jobs, with 400,000 almost immediately. So, Nancy, how's that going to happen? Is the government going to grow that much under this flawed plan?
We have watched trillions of dollars spent over the last year, we have seen nothing positive come out of any monies spent. We have seen dirty backroom deals for votes, and have watched with disgust. We the people have been powerless to effect any change on what the government is trying to impose.
But once again, this is what the American people got for representation when we voted for these arrogant elitists in 2008. Now we are facing the biggest crisis in the history of our nation, not related to a war. And believe me, all of us are going to be paying dearly for this.
