I find it terrifying so many are completely happy to pass half-assed bills into enforceable laws in the hopes that one day that law could be changed
into something worthwhile. Completely disregarding or ignoring all of the lives that will be altered and affected under the half-assed bill.
Imagine if, when pushing to outlaw certain drugs, the gov just passed a "ban all the drugs" bill into law and later on amended it to not ban
antibiotics and anticoagulants but still ban '___' and meth? Eventually the people would get the law they wanted but while the gear grind and the
wheels turn millions die of infections and heart attacks.
This bill as it is doesnt change anything for anyone save an increase is taxes and premiums payed to the insurance companies.
Just like the governments big mortgage help that was deemed yesterday to be "essentially meaningless".
TARP foreclosure plan "essentially meaningless"
to do something!?!?!?!? Like reactionary neanderthals.
