Poetic Justice?

It would seem that the Health Control Law, pushed under cover of darkness and demagoguery, and passed with the threat of a very large gavel, may have cut Congress members off of their own insurance:

“It is unclear whether members of Congress and Congressional staff who are currently participating in F.E.H.B.P. may be able to retain this coverage,” the research service said in an 8,100-word memorandum.

And even if current members of Congress can stay in the popular program for federal employees, that option will probably not be available to newly elected lawmakers, the report says.

It’s almost funny to contemplate. Like, it’s almost as if they didn’t read or understand what they were voting on, or something. Remember for over a year we’ve been told that if you like your coverage, you can keep what you have, right?

Seems every day something new and outrageous trickles out of this monstrosity. If there has ever been a time to hold our elected officials accountable, then it is now!

Now, I don’t actually think this will last very long. It will be a quickie little fix that they will rush through, probably attached to some other budgetary amendment or something, with zero fanfare. But the rest of us still have to live with the rest of that piece of garbage.

This May Explain a Lot

From the article:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/mar/01/barack-obama-told-to-quit-smoking

The doctors also recommended “moderation of alcohol intake”.

It just writes itself, no?  I’m sure Leno and Jon Stewart will have fun with this.  Maybe even Letterman, but I’m not sure if he’s up to making fun of The Won yet.

Seriously, though.  I’ll be honest,  he wants to down a few, it’s not really much skin off my nose.  As long as he’s not (regularly) falling-down sloppy, in case there is some kind of incident that requires his attention.

Even a bit of a “buzz” from a couple more than you should have, should something happen, would dissipate relatively quickly.  Probably before Air Force One lifts off to get him to NORAD or some other command center, before they get there at the latest.

In any case, if I was President (yeah, right, keep dreaming!) and I had to deal with the constant onslaught of criticism, backstabbing, and deal making that the job requires, I’m certain I’d be cracking a cold one quite often.  Much like I do now.

Cheers, Mister President!
