Sounds like there'll be a vote on the health care reform bill this Sunday. I, for one, am ready. My viewpoint has not wavered from the very beginning of this discussion, well over a year ago. Philosophically, I know that passing this bill (while it's far from the reform I was hoping for) is the right thing to do. I am not proud of the fact that we call ourselves the greatest nation in the world, and we let our citizens suffer and die. Yeah, I know. A lot of you don't agree. And at this point, I'm just going to have to be okay with that.
This morning, I stumbled across this list of biblical references about helping others. I have no other argument at this time.
I have called my representatives. I have emailed them. I have talked (and talked and talked) to my friends about it. I really love democracy. When we have an issue, or an opinion, we can get involved. For that, I am grateful.
Whatever happens from here, I made my voice heard.
