i've got nothing...
"I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you
just go to an emergency room." -- George W. Bush, July 10, 2007
when i read this quote (which was yesterday because he happened to say this when i was in the midst of my picu nightfloat month and was flirting intimately with the boundaries of human exhaustion) i was completely dumbfounded. i mean, seriously? where do you even start with such an ignorant statement?
and where is the outrage that he could say, let alone think, something so ridiculous? i googled the quote to see where all the buzz was...nowhere. there were a few articles and blog posts about it, but really not much.
all i can say is that hillary can only do better, because there's nowhere to go but up from there. to her great credit, at least she understands the magnitude of the health care problem in this country and has understood it for years. don't we deserve a president who can grasp the rudimentary issues, if not the subtlety, of a problem this important?
there was an article in the ny times today about the release of hillary's new and improved health care plan tomorrow.
i await with bated breath.
