Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a long-debated healthcare bill in the hopes that voting Americans will have some idea what it's about before elections in November. Credit for the landmark bill has largely gone to Barack Obama, who--in a brilliant strategic move--decided to run for office at a time when George W. Bush had secured Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress.
I'd like to take this moment, however, to thank the 2% of Americans who earn over $200,000 annually per individual or $250,000 per couple and will see their income taxes rise to offset the costs of this bill.
While I do not personally understand how hard it is to have an annual income of a quarter million dollars, let alone be taxed on it, I want these people to know that I appreciate their sacrifice in the face of the soul-sucking socialism this bill represents.
(And I'd like to think that Jesus appreciates their sacrifice, too.)
