I'm watching the health care "debates," and it's just ridiculous. I'm glad that I am not in politics. First of all, some of the crap (from both sides) is vomit worthy in terms of lies being spewed out. Several people are directly saying things that have already been debunked or dealt with. Abortion, it seems, is the biggest issue that keeps being talked about.
Mostly, it's just frustrating for me to hear. Matt's watching it, but I think it is time for me to leave the room. It seems like everyone sees this vote (and all other "big" votes) will be the apocalypse.
For me, I think I'll go now and just read about it tomorrow in the NYTimes.
Update: I picked up a book while Matt kept watching. Interesting to see the votes come in. I'm still frustrated that abortion seems to be a central part of this issue, even though abortion is only the very smallest portion of health care. So far, the Senate version of the bill has been passed, and they are moving forward to the rest of the votes.
I definitely think I am too full of passion and bias to be entirely level-headed on this topic. As one who buys my own health care, I already spend plenty of time thinking about health care costs as it is.
