Yesterday I wrote about health care reform and one commenter agreed with me and one disagreed with me. This morning, I checked the latest survey on CNN.com with the question: What is your reaction to the newly passed health care reform bill? For it: 44%, Against it: 40%, Not sure: 16%. So two little samples showing us that it is splitting us into two groups.
Now I am not sure why people are for or against it. Is it the big picture idea that is good or bad or some of the key line items that are causing such strong emotions for each person. That is what is so great in our country, we are all entitled to our own opinions and able to speak them. We are each entitled to our own opinions. I am only sure that this bill is a needed start to reforming our health care system and I am also sure that it will be tweaked and changed in coming years and decades so what ever it is now will only bear a faint memory to what it will become over time.
Enough of that. I can only bear so much political/legal discussion early in the day. Today is another dreary rainy day. I do not have to go to work. But I do need to go to my therapist, meet a friend for lunch, and get my hair cut. This means going out three times in the rain. If I am a good person, I will also go out to the gym. I don't think I'll be staying very dry today. And I think we are going out to dinner. But at least I don't need to go to work. Yesterday I worked all day and was tired - how's that for news?
