(TDW) I'm sure you've heard the news of Joe Biden's verbal gaffe at the signing ceremony earlier today, and if you haven't, you will. Some sources are apparently trying to make a big deal out of this- I read earlier that Faux News ran the audio "repeatedly." Whatever. I happen to agree with Biden on this, and it doesn't really trouble me that he used some injudicious language to say so. The more I read about the final result, the better I feel. I still worry about the potential for corporate abuse of the US taxpayer, but it was clear from the beginning that for-profit insurance companies were not the target of this bill- that is, that they would remain viable players and a part of whatever resolution we reached. And they are, so I have no reason to act surprised or outraged. I'm just a little trepidacious, is all.
But that doesn't change the fact that this is indeed a big fucking deal.
