yeah, it was Georgia that was the penal colony, but the boundaries were defined poorly then, and if you've ever spent any time in Spartansburg....well, never mind that,
heaithcare has needed attention for a long time, its killing industry and small businesses, but when the nation's broke, those guys had no business creating another expense. If troops were pulled out of the middle east we'd have enough, not only for health care but free drinks for everybody. The real problem is costs, and there was no serious attempt to deal with that. Given, thats a hard thing to legislate, but now, Hospitals are allowed to operate as unregulated monopolies, and it'll continue to spiral. My god, been to an ER lately? Three hours in there costs as much as a new Martin guitar, all proportion is gone.
The thing that infuriates me about Democrats is they had so many bad laws to undo, and they didn't touch a thing, just went straight ahead with even more ill considered programs, (amnesty for illegals) which will, I predict, get a lot of them replaced by republicans. Then whats been gained?
Except for one or maybe two, I've got too much self respect to vote for a republican, but I'm independant now and the first thing I'm looking for on the ballot next time is a libertarian.
