What just happened?

What just happened???? Today the President cancelled an overseas trip, or at least, delayed it until June. Everybody understands that it was to be in the country for the vote on the health care bill. It's a bill that might get voted on this weekend. Or it might not. It's a vote they might win. Or they might not. The Congressional Budget Office said that it wasn't ready to finalize its analysis of the costing of the latest bill just yet. They need a couple of weeks. Apparently they're feeling a little overworked lately.

Yet the Democrats are pushing forward. They seem convinced they'll win. Daily, Congressmen say they have decided to vote for or against the bill. But recent history is on the side of Democrats - at each previous stage they've cleared the hurdles. To be honest, this is a too close to call situation. The experts and pundits don't know, so how are we supposed to know? The situation really is legislative and political chaos.

There's an ancient Chinese curse, 'may you live in interesting times'. These indeed are. Stay tuned.


  1. What about the idea of taking charge of our own health care costs? Check out

  2. Belated thanks for the comment Christine.

    A valid question, one the Democrats didn't seem to want to answer, or acknowledge.
