Was at the office over six hours today. Got a lot done. I had four chili dogs and a double fish sandwich from Checkers while I was there. Then went to Flanigan's afterwards for a bowl of steak soup and a couple of potato skins (brought two home). I left there a little after 9:00. I was already dressed from work and didn't feel like calling it a night yet.
And it is my duty to warn the Congress and the White House about the flaws in the bill that could cause millions of Americans to rebel against their health reform in the 2010 elections, the way seniors rebelled against the costly Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988 and got it repealed the very next year, damaging Ways and Means Committee Chair Dan Rostenkowski and endangering many Democrats.
So I am trying to get today's Democrats to understand that
* if they force Americans to purchase health insurance, it better be affordable, and
* taxing middle-class health insurance policies is a formula for political disaster. For more information on this battle, go to www.nomiddleclasshealthtax.com. . . .
Tired. Was very busy today, on top of it being the much dreaded holidays.
