• My thoughts on health care reform

    People keep asking.  I keep saying no.  But that isn’t stopping any of you.

    I am not a politician.  I am not an advocate.  I am never going to tell you to support or oppose a candidate, nor will I ever tell you to support or oppose any legislation. That hasn’t changed.

    However, I will say this.  If you supported health care reform last week, I do have trouble understanding you if you think it should be killed this week.  The only thing that has changed is that a very weak public option has dropped.  That changes the bill very little overall.

    Some have always opposed the bill because it’s not single payer.  I understand why they still do.

    Others have always opposed it because they dislike any expansion of regulation or government involvement.  I understand why they still do.

    But I am a bit mystified by those who loved the Senate Bill last week this week think it is more harmful than helpful.  Sorry, but that’s hard to rationalize.
