Snowpocalypse 2009 (With Health Care Crisis Thrown in for Good Measure)

Sat, December 19, 2009

Democrats, Republicans

One good thing about this “snow event” on the I-95 corridor this weekend — legislators are stuck here and have to keep working away on the ever evolving health care bill (not that that’s going to do us a lot of good on the reproductive rights front). Just a few miles away as the crow flies, this is what we’ve got to keep us busy — and we’re only about half done with the snowfall!

Blizzard 2

I’d say 12 inches and counting

That oughta keep ‘em inside working for a while

snowblower

Mr. PunditMom isn’t coming over to Capitol Hill with his snowblower until you work out some decent legislation!

UPDATE: We clearly will not be sending Mr. PunditMom to Capitol Hill, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is capitulating to Senator Ben Nelson about even MORE restrictive language on abortion & women’s health care.¬† This isn’t a health care “starter home” as Reid proclaimed; this is shack in a back alley.

    Oh my, that chill wind I feel coming from Washington isn’t just from the snowstorm, it’s also from the Senate windbags blustering on. The only thing that can overcome the insurance lobby and Senator Nelson’s recalcitrance is constituent pressure. I invite PunditMom readers to check out http://www.notunderthebus.com frequently for updates and and quick, easy ways to make your voice heard.

    It is ridiculous to think that our supposedly enlightened society puts women’s health issues so far in the gutter, er, alley.

    As for the snow, my daughter was closer to you than to me last weekend – she was covering a college football game near Roanoke, with its share of snow. Maybe that’s why the Wisconsin team won; it felt like home!
