It appears we may not get a health care reform. Members of both sides agree it’s necessary, though the Republicans never did anything to fix it when they were in charge. Nonetheless, the first serious attempt to fix it in 15 years is again going to go down the crapper.
And it’s going to do so because of selfish bastards. Go read all the defenses: it’ll cost businesses or people this and it isn’t perfect and so on and so forth. Read them again:
“It makes me spend money to help my fellow citizens in need.”
“I’ve got mine, fuck you.”
Pardon me for existing. And when the time comes, as it eventually will, that you reach out to me for help, for that bit of caring that will make a difference in your life, remember this:
As you have sowed, so shall you reap.
