Brad and Britt. Man, ya gotta love ’em. I mean, even when you hate ’em, you gotta hand it to ’em.
This morning they are talking about health care legislation and Joe Lieberman. I guess Joe is to the Democrats as Snowe is to the Republicans. Anyway, that’s what they were talking about.
Then, during a break, Neil Boortz came on and pitched his show; a quick 15 second bit advertising his show at 10:00. During his bit, he made mention that this health care legislation was “Government takeover of health care.”
Heh. Brad went nuts. He lashed out in his typical 2 octaves above normal voice and began ranting and raving. Finally, he ended with the comment that “this is not government takeover of health care, I don’t care what a jerk-ass radio talk show host says.”
Stay classy guys, stay classy.
It is no accident that one Senator can be an obstructionist. He, and the filibuster for that matter, remind us that the governmental sovereignty allowed the state governments is what is really represented in the US Senate (unlike in the US House of Reps). As frustrating as it is, there is a trade off in wiping this out in favor of remaking the US Senate on the basis of the principles of the US House…trade offs given the scale of the US. and what the US is. For this argument, pls see http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/will-there-be-a-health-reform-bill-out-of-the-us-senate/
