He ranted on about the cost to our children and grandchildren. I would love to have asked him if mine would even be alive if he had his way. They wouldn't be if they didn't have insurance and had a serious illness.
Of course, I am exaggerating somewhat, but not by much. When a woman in his Town Hall meeting told of the insurance company sending her husband home with a feeding tube that she didn't know how to care for, Coburn magnanimously offered to have her come to his office and they (presumably, his staff) would help. Does anyone else beside me find this absolutely irrelevant and impractical? Maybe a better word would be ludicrous.
I think I need a laugh at this point and I'll bet you could use one too. I had some funny animal pictures on this post yesterday, but they have vanished into cyber space. I tried retrieving them, but my entire editing system is now FUBAR. I think I need to start all over with a clean slate. The more I try to fix things, the worse they get. My patience is exhausted. I hope you have a joke or two in your e-mail box because I am unable to post any funnies to lighten the mood.
