Fair is Fair

Encouraged by the Senate of the United States making decisions about the government of Iraq, the Chamber of Deputies of the Duchy of Grand Fenwick has passed a resolution noting that the American Electoral College is a rather stupid idea, and that including Alaska in the United States makes no sense at all as it is obviously part of Canada.

The decision on Hawaii and the island territories was tabled as it was felt that global climate change would eliminate them anyway.

They Sold Their Souls

You cannot deal with the insurance industry – they corrupt the system. They have had the government force people to pay for insurance, but have no intention of honoring their agreements, if you do manage to get insurance.

Badtux has another nice rant on health insurance, Why are Americans so unhealthy?, and the Shrubbery is demonstrating the adherence to the insurance industry line of the GOP with a veto today, and a promised veto for another bill.

As expected, today the Shrubbery vetoed the SCHIP bill:

The president had promised to veto it, saying the Democratic bill was too costly, took the program too far from its original intent of helping the poor, and would entice people now covered in the private sector to switch to government coverage. He wants only a $5 billion increase in funding.

Bush argued that the congressional plan would be a move toward socialized medicine by expanding the program to higher-income families.

You can add “socialized medicine” to the ever-growing file of things the Shrubbery doesn’t understand.
