The Senate Finance Committee, led by Senator Max Baucus, passed a health
care reform bill without provisions for a public health insurance option.
This opens the door to procedural shenanigans that could prevent the
public option from ever being considered on the floor of the Senate, which
would make it much harder for the public option to be included in the
final bill that lands on the president's desk.
We can't sit back and let the public option die. So I have told Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid to make sure a public option is included in the
health care reform bill that goes to the floor of the Senate.
I hope you will too. Just click the link below.
"The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished."
So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished and, before the morning was over, I finished off a bottle of Pinot Noir, a package of Oreo Cookies, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates.
