Thought:

“Gee, it sure seems, sometimes, like the Congressional opposition to healthcare reforms is offering disingenuous, intellectually invalid boilerplate as justification for defending the market share of the few companies that benefit disproportionately under the current status quo.”

Fact:

“In the official record of the historic House debate on overhauling health care, the speeches of many lawmakers… were ghostwritten, in whole or in part, by Washington lobbyists working for Genentech, one of the world’s largest biotechnology companies.”

Honestly, politics in this country is so infuriating, if it wasn’t for my innate sense of moral superiority sometimes I think I’d go insane.
