Thank goodness for small favors! I just looked on the news and saw that the health care law had been upheld by the Supreme Court. It is really a political battle between Republicans who wanted to deny coverage and the President who wanted to extend coverage by expanding the market. The fact that these quislings would do everything possible to wreck the plan shows where their priorities lay. I read something yesterday about how they were trying to tear down the health care cooperatives, which should be relatively uncontroversial. They wanted to keep the elderly in the donut hole that they dug for the elderly. They don’t want people with pre-existing conditions to be covered. They don’t want young adults to be covered under their parents’ coverage. They don’t want to help me pay for coverage. Well, fuck ’em. It’s on. The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and the repugnants can kiss my black veteran ass.
