An Arrangement

So, you haven't seen him but he's big, he's expensive, he's demanding and exacting but trust us, we know what's best for you, you couldn't pick a better guy.

By the way, you're getting married tomorrow.

This is the argument being put forth now to sell healthcare. Yeah it's messy. Yeah it's expensive. Yeah it funds abortion. Yeah the Senate deal has loads o'pork. Yeah the house is busy buying off votes as fast as the Mint can print money. Yeah the CBO score is preliminary and incomplete. Yeah there are taxes the first four years before benefits kick in. Yeah 2,700 pages haven't been read; quote Pelosi "we have to pass the bill to find out what is in the bill." Yeah people have protested and 37 states have indicated they want to sue if this becomes law. Yeah and maybe the bill will cost the Democrats seats all over the place this year like in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts.

So the public is saying, "We don't want this.
So the Democrats and the White House can't not know; but they've decided.

Once we pass it, you're gonna just LOVE it.  And if you don't, that's your problem.

Yeah it's an arranged marriage but you'll love him in ten years and no, you don't get to opt out.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
