I've finished the text of Chaucey Gardener's speech.
Nothing but a bunch of corned beef hash from March 19-20. Leftovers. Re-hashed shit that's just bad for you.
Most of the proposals are either laughable, or are completely unworkable.
This is a great line: "...For all Americans, we must confront the rising cost of care, strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and help people afford the insurance coverage they need."
Notice how he's going to help you "afford the ...coverage." Sounds like more HMO/Medicare coverage to me.
Chauncey's energy challenges are so great at this point that developing the technology to generate ethanol from wood chips in six years is like a farmer asking for rain some time in the future.
This president has so badly miscalculated, so badly managed, so badly led, so badly prioritized that we will likely take a generation to fix the damage done.
