Why I Wouldn't Not Want to be a Senator
Watching Arlen Specter's town hall meeting on Heath Care Reform on MSNBC, and boy are they grilling him up like a spare rib. Half of the people are barely coherent, but the other half are giving very reasoned arguments against the bill(s?) and Specter is floundering like a fish. These town halls, the way they're done now, aren't getting the job done, primarily because they representatives don't know how to talk to people and secondly, because they bill(s?) in the house seem to suck. I'm still for health reform, but I really wish they'd done these meetings before they presented anything and taken some of this criticism to the board. My prediction? Something will pass, and the Dems will get whipped in the midterm. This really looks bad.
