That's probably bad but it's certainly not as messy as the sausages that helped blow up the U.S. deficit in the early part of this century. One of which wasn't f$*#$ng necessary by any means.I know this has been posted before, likely when the ACA first was passed, but here it is again... No one likes to see how the sausage is made, but here's what you're getting a big bite of... The inside of the sausage:
Keep in mind that this process was necessitated by the fact that when the Democratic party finally go their 60 seat majority in very late June of 2009 instead of January because of the very close race that Al Franken won was contested until the very last.
Then after waiting over 5 months for get that 60 vote; Senator Kennedy became sick not soon after and had to limit his Senate appearances.
The upshot is that the Democratic party didn't have the 60 votes for as long as some people like to assert.
When one hand is going to fight the other hand making anything at all in the kitchen is going to be damn messy.
