The one thing we know for certain is that in 75 years, everyone reading this will be dead.
Some will die from accident, homicide, suicide, "act of God" (hurricane, et al), but the overwhelming majority of us will die from illness. And most of those illnesses will be protracted and probably grisly.
But yeah, President Obama's health care legislation backed by the Democrats was a "pet issue".
The electorate is gargling bongwater.
