We’ve Heard It Before…


Remember my post the other day talking about the Republican mantra of gloom and doom regarding health care reform? All the predictions of socialism **shudder** and the government taking over our lifes?

My elderly aunt told me something (not so) surprising today…

“Been there, done that.”

Last time I looked, it didn’t happen. We’re still here, the country’s still standing, socialism hasn’t taken over our lifes (although eight years of anarchy almost did), and my elderly aunt is getting the health care she needs via Medicare.

Isn’t it amazing how the “legacy” of Ronald Reagan still haunts us to this day?
