Interesting visual on healthcare bill

I wouldn’t even know where to begin to talk about this right now.  No, I’m not celebrating the historic day that was yesterday and this healthcare bill issue. You would have thought Diane Sawyer was announcing Ann Taylor was giving away clothes from the way she was so excited last night.  Disturbing.

Thanks to Kayla for mentioning this on a board.  It’s from here if you want the interactive version.  You can click to make the picture larger if you just want to get a better peek at the image.

I’m not into predicting, and I’m not asking for any defense of either side of this debate, really, but I feel sure when people work this hard to pass something that doesn’t even pertain to them personally, the rest of us should sit up and take notice.  At the very least, if the legislators are going to put this through, they should have no choice but to have to live with it as well…all the way to Mr. Yes You Can himself. 

I can just see him toasting last night to the chants, “Yes you can!” as he thinks, “Yes YOU can, but thank goodness I don’t have to.” 

Ok, so I guess I did have something to say.

  1. I usually steer clear of political discourse, but it's worth noting that the institution that's so interested in taking over my family's health care has also deemed BOTH my children (with Down syndrome and multiple congenital heart defects) as having NO disabilities because my husband makes more than $35,000 a year.

    NOT exactly the group I'm elated to have figuring in to the medical treatment my "non-disabled" children receive.

    Not to mention the therapy servicing reduction we're already directly experiencing due to cuts in government funding.

    I suppose it would be optimistic to expect more when the President AND his Chief of Staff have both publicly made fun of the Special Olympics and defended the use of the word "retarded" in personal and professional settings.

    Looks like I suddenly have an opinion as well...;0)
