Will it happen? and other mess
Healthcare Reform passed through the Senate this morning after an 8:00 am vote.
Now we must wait until the January vote to see what the Conference Committee comes up with as far as a final bill. Will it include the much-needed, controversial public option? Will it expand Medicare and Medicaid? Will it tax tanning and plastic surgery?
Only time will tell.
In cold news: It's raining here in the arctic north. It's raining and freezing and raining and freezing and...ugh. But! That shall not stop Partner and I from heading to meet the family in West Virginia for the Christmas holiday. I've got to work tonight until about 9-ish, but then I'm coming home, napping, and making the trek out to the mountains.
I hope Santa can find me. Foxfire, if you read this in time, could you put in a good word for me?
In Podcast Land: Also, Rioters, I'm really sorry, but it doesn't look like a Christmas Riot will happen this year. It's just a bit too much this week, but I'll be raring to go as soon as we get these holidays over and done with.
So, as you may or may not celebrate with your families the next few days, Merry Christmas! May you have safe travels, and may you get the joy of seeing someone open a present you know they'll love.
Love and Lyte,
P.S. You might be asking, "Why the hot Santa picture?" Why the hell not?!
