This isn’t an opinion piece on the merits and downfalls of the Heath Care Reform package passed last year. Like most people who actually know what is in the bill, I like parts of it, and think other parts should be repealed before they have the chance to go into effect. But no matter where you stand on the issue, we can all agree that our representatives in Washington should not waste their time on dog and pony shows that have no chance of passing.
My representative, Lee Terry, (like most Republicans) is against the bill and is likely to support his party’s efforts to waste the time we gave them to work on solving our nation’s long list of extremely difficult problems.
But unlike Democrats, most of which only seem intent on stonewalling any effort to make any changes to the bill, excepting a notable few, there are in fact those who have ideas on what is within the realm of possibility, in regards to reforming parts of the health care bill.
