Aw hey, Roberts!

You know, he’s getting credit for being the surprise vote on upholding the healthcare law- and yet he threw in the tax barb and every Obama-hating Republican jumped all the fuck over it.

And I don’t even care.  No, it’s not a great law.  From what I remember reading it way back, it’s kind of a shitty law.  It needs a lot of adjustment, and it was a mess of a compromise to begin with.  But it’s some kind of fucking plan.  It’s a place to start.

Is it a tax?  Sure.  Government services cost money to run, and in this case coordinating the cost of health care among everyone and reining in the bullshit overhead from the insurance companies is a service I’m more than happy to pay for.

It’s not about government control any more than any other government service: schools, libraries, sanitation, whatever.  Hey, I don’t have kids.  Why the fuck do I pay a school tax?  Because I don’t want other people’s kids to grow up any more fucktarded than they are already.  Ultimately, it’s supposed to benefit the majority.

It’s not part of a “socialist agenda”, and everyone who’s bought that bullshit needs to take it back and get a refund.  And then you need to do some catching up on what socialism is, not what Limbaugh or your dad led you to think it was.

I'm a painter, a drummer, a student, and currently unemployed. I also appreciate cats and a bit of light debauchery, but not at the same time or for the same reasons.
