My Wife, Bonnie, Says: “Nancy’s Bill Needs An Amendment”

On reading my evaluation of the “band-aid” period between 2010 and 2013, specified in Nancy Pelosi’s compromise bill, Bonnie commented:

”I think the House ought to include a special subsidy for the 31,000 families of uninsured people who will die annually from lack of insurance during the band-aid period, so that they can afford to bury their loved ones.”

When I asked why, Bonnie replied by saying that:

“since Nancy and the Democrats are allowing that 31,000 fatality doughnut hole to continue to exist, they ought to take responsibility for this, and at least pay for the funerals.”

Just so!
