The last straw

This has me pretty much now happy to see any healthcare bill that is satisfactory to President Obama as satisfactory also to me: http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/09/pawlenty-its-a-viable-option-to-invoke-state-sovereignty-keep-minnesota-out-of-health-care-reform.php

This is in freaking Minnesota. My jaw hit the floor.

Let’s let the Republicans recover from their stress. We’ve already driven them half mad simply by electing an African-American liberal Democrat as president, and the president is only trying to get passed the healthcare plan that he campaigned on and which we voted for (even if we wanted more). People get better if you keep them under stress, but you don't want to tear them in two. If healthcare brings the nation to the point of collapse again, we can deal with that.

I am sick and tired of seeing people (always in the United States) write to ask_a_nurse and noting that they don't have insurance and want to avoid seeing a doctor. When Obama's bill gets passed, there are going to be a lot of people who will want to go see a doctor. Let them go, without risking more Murrah Building events.
