522. Barry, We Won.

I'm a little upset with my president. And, let's be honest, I like my president a lot. But I don't like this backpeddling and reconciliation over healthcare. I voted for Obama in 2008 for the same reason I voted for John Yarmuth in 2006 - I voted for Change. One of the things that needs changing, perhaps the greatest one once we put the Civil War behind us, is fixing healthcare. I support single payer, I support HR676. I expect my congressman and my president to do the same. After all, we control the Senate, we control the House, and a 48 year old skinny black man with a funny name lives with his wife and children at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW as the CEO of our Republic.

Barry, we won. Press on.

Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
