With a nod to TCM:

We're trying to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he does't understand it, passed by a congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes... all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that is broke.

I'm not a fan of any health care plan that has come up yet, and the clear disregard for any real attempt at bipartisanship is disgusting.

Thanks for the nod, brother.

What I think it really comes down to is the scale to which the Obama administration is trying to reform the health insurance industry. Had the president gone about this in an incremental manner (which I believe would inherently lead to more bipartisanship), he would be enjoying far greater success than he is now.

Everyone agrees the system needs reform. And while Republicans tend to favor free market reform while Democrats tend to favor government interventionism, I think it would have been strategically sound to move forward one step at a time.

There may very well be some good stuff weaved into that 2,000+ page document the administration is lugging around. But there's also a ton of nonsense and I think the American public has a reasonable fear of the unknown... especially when you have top officials admitting they don't really know what they're voting for.

Heh. Your picture sums it up better than I could with words.
