“Clinton’s attempt to socialize healthcare was the second most disgusting thing he did in the oval office. I can’t remember what the first thing was.” -Ann Coulter
I know I’m all sorts of late with this, but I wanted to say something about the Supreme Court’s health care ruling.
I have to say that I wasn’t optimistic that the legislation was going to be upheld. And for me, this was a giant tree trunk that was going to break the camel’s back. I didn’t want to live in a country that doesn’t provide health care to its citizens. It’s morally reprehensible.
The decision came down at 4PM here and I knew I’d be on the train, heading home. So I asked @dmfarley to text me with updates. I figured I would learn that the mandate wasn’t upheld and I could lose myself in the awesomeness of the AWOLNATION album until I could get home and start drinking.
I sat on the train and held my phone, constantly checking to make sure the sound and vibration notifications were on and cursing the lack of 3G reception. And then I got the text. It turns out that @dmfarley is more reliable than CNN and reported to me that the mandate had been upheld.
I let out an excited shout.
The Dutch guy next to me on the train leaned over, eyes wide, and asked “Did they announce the new Dutch football coach?”
