This parade of the addled, the lame and the simply ineffective and dim could go on and on, but here’s the point: Congress is in the process of deciding what the nation’s health insurance system – and therefore, the nation’s health delivery system – will look like for coming generations. This is unfortunately a federal intervention into 1/6th of the U.S. economy that the leaders of both political parties agree needs to happen. The Democrats accomplished the initial takeover in 2010 without a single Republican vote, and the Republicans appear to be limping towards making some sort of “reform” to the government-mandated system without receiving a single Democrat vote.
There are many huge problems with this process, but it seems to me that the single biggest part of it is that every person in leadership of both parties who making these decisions for future generations is old enough to be retired – and most should have long ago been forcibly retired by the voters – and all are exempt for life from suffering the inevitable bad consequences of these decisions.
That Democrat consultant’s comment about an “assisted living center” was funny because it was perceived as being largely true. But the truth, of course, is that none of these senior citizens in congressional leadership will ever have to spend a day in such a facility. They will all retire wealthy (many of them mysteriously so) and live their final days in gated communities or estates surrounded by high walls and security guards to protect them from the rabble who must endure the effects of their decisions.
