I was putting this together when Sweetie asked me if I wanted to go with him into Fernley to pick up the fountain for our side garden. Well, one thing led to another and before we knew it we’d made a trip to Ace, the grocery store, back home and then over to our local nursery to grab some more plants, back home, set up the fountain, hauled rocks, planted the new plants and well, this post got the short end. Some good reading below. There is a theme.
Cinie’s World: Way Too Much Ado About Nothing
Let me repeat.
There is no health care plan. There is currently no single health care bill.
So, you may well ask, what’s all the yelling about? Good question. Simple answer? That’s the plan.
You’re not gonna get any health care, or health insurance reform, okay? You’re gonna get bupkes, and, they’re gonna make you pay through the nose for the privilege. That’s why Single Payer has always been off the table, and, why there is no Public Plan, and never will be. And, you can blame anybody you want to, whether it makes any freaking sense, or not, you can travel in whoever’s bus you want to get on, and ride to as many town halls as you want to go to, and yell your fool head off about “death panels” killing everybody’s Granny Manson-like, vs. “everybody in, nobody out” til the cows come home, all you’re doing is making sure that not giving in to either side seems like the media-spinnable reasonable compromise I mentioned earlier. That’s The Plan.
anna shane at Alegre’s Corner on why the “grassroots” aren’t jumping en masse to support Obama’s “plan.”: for grass roots, try grass?
I’d be happy to make calls all through the night if I were calling for Medicare for All, and not what’s on the table. Give us some grass, Mr. President, and we’ll show you grass roots the likes of which have never been seen before.
And here’s how we’ll sell it: Science based, well social science and outcome studies and economic studies based, empirical evidence based, a program that is already in place and has high satisfaction and lowest cost, where those of us who are still healthy can know that the extras from our premiums are going for the good of the nation, and not the good of some corporate executive who ‘needs’ a fifth vacation palace more than some poor kid needs his cavities filled.
And for our mental health…The Garden. I can’t wait until it fills in.
