Killing People by Killing Time

As of this writing, 3.6 million Americans have lost their health insurance since January 1, 2008, even as we in the USA spend six times more per capita on the administration of health care than comparable Western European nations. How is Congress responding?

This evening, the House passed a resolution sponsored by Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) that commemorates Hawaii’s 50th anniversary as a U.S. state by a vote of 378-0. The resolution also contains this provision: “Whereas the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii,” a measure that some GOP members may have had trouble supporting.
The elected majority of Congress is responding to the health care crisis -- and countless other crises to boot -- by indulging the most idiotic and puerile imaginings of the opposition party.

As the minutes, hours, and days fly by, the costs mount up -- ruinous monetary costs, devastating human costs. Not one second more should be wasted on the fantasies of depraved clowns.
