Well, it’s over. These many months of ranting and raving, and all it took was an emergency late-night vote (on a Sunday!) to fix it. Now another 30 million have health insurance, denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions has gone the way of the Cold War, and on top of it all, the deficit will be cut $138 billion over a decade. Oh, and did you know that as a bonus student loans have been shifted to the government as part of the bill? Those students are a pretty healthy lot, so we wouldn’t want them to miss out on the largess.

Now that it’s over, I guess I can retire my keyboard. My fingers are hurting, anyway. Maybe signs of arthritis setting in. No worry, they have to cover it. What’s that you say? Speaker Pelosi announced that “We will be joining those who established Social Security, Medicare and now, tonight, health care for all Americans”? Wait, aren’t Social Security and Medicare going broke? Oh, the health care bill doesn’t ramp up for another 4 years, you say. Uh, wait, isn’t that after the next presidential election? What’s that? I’m being paranoid? Gosh, maybe you’re right. I’m feeling an uncontrollable urge to vote every Congressman and woman out of office.

I hope there’s a provision for free unlimited psychiatric care, no pre-existing conditions excluded.
