Kris Kristofferson sings
Well, they finally came and told me they was a gonna set me free
And Id be leavin town if I knew what was good for me
I said, its nice to learn that evrybodys so concerned about my health.
The Republican’s concern over health care reform reminds me of that song. To be clear, the Republicans primary goal here is to have nothing done. One need look no further than the years 2003 through 2007. In those years the Republicans had majorities in both houses of congress and the presidency. Did they do anything about health care? No. It is not like the health care problems that we have just appeared in the last two years.
Any Republican discussion about “doing it right” and “going slow” really just means preventing anything from happening.
