Republicans are doing what their constituents put them in office to do. Dems, though, have gone rogue, paving the way for Republicans. CHIPS was the start. That program had as its sole purpose sparing eligible white voters the embarrassment of applying for welfare.
I'd have preferred being part of a single-payer system to what Congress seems determined to have me be: part of the old one-receiver system, with "reform" being represented by even more complexity. How must this feel to those who are on fixed incomes, and who are old, or ill, or injured or in some other way or ways weaker than any member of Congress?
A single-payer system would've allowed me to get care (even if it originated only in the form of money) from the people who would obviously have controlled it, when I discovered--as usual--that I was being gouged.
If I can't have a single-payer system for Christmas, I want to see Nancy Pelosi trying to put "Recall" off the table.
