Republican Healthcare in America

The public option got shot down in committee yesterday. It may (or may not) get resurrected down the pike. If it does, you can be sure it'll be in some watered-down "blow-job to the insurance companies" form.

I can't take credit for this, but it's all over the internets in various forms today:

It's the Republican Healthcare Plan.

1. Don't get sick.

and, if you do get sick,

2. Die quickly.

That's the gist of it.

And here's my valentine to the Republican Party today:

Heh. I thought you might enjoy it. I love it.

I must've missed that business about Cantwell's amendment. I'll have a look. But you're right, it would be a start.

To me, the scariest thing about all this polarization is that we could devolve into Iraq...the Sunnis versus the Shiites. And that's been going on since some jerk assassinated Mohammed's grandson Ali, around 1200 years ago!
