I am watching the house debate on the health care vote this morning.
How can it be, in this country, that, once again, the Republican party has been able to reduce a debate on one of the most important issues facing this country, to one more endless malicious yammering about abortion, their most pervasive, pernicious form of pandering to their ignorant, intolerant base?
Is there nothing on earth important enough to interrupt their attempt to twist the government to their own ends?
This sick issue has nothing, nothing, NOTHING to do with the matter before the congress. Let's have enough of this pandering to the worst among us, and do what the American people need to have done.
