I ain't committed to no "public option," an' I ain't wedded to no "single payer." (Two words I figger only a turd mite could love.)
And, like most of my feller Americans, I don't have anywhere near's the mental stick-with-it-er'ed-ness to fret much about health care costs that are spiraling out of control.
(Sounds like a rolly coaster!)
But on his blogamacallit, last week, that mute movie guy Roger Ebert said what I'da said if I coulda laid tongue to it:
is a moral imperative. I cannot enjoy health coverage and turn to my neighbor
and tell him he doesn't deserve it. A nation is a mutual undertaking. In a
democracy, we set out together to do what we believe is good for the
commonwealth. That means voluntarily subjecting ourselves to the rule of law,
taxation, military service, the guaranteeing of rights to minorities, and so
on. That is a cheap price to pay.
I can't imagine any o' my feller Americans would disagree with that. Not out loud, anyway.
Let's go on ahead with this.
