I had to get some medical tests yesterday, which took a couple of hours. But the nurses were very smart and interesting, and they were all paying close attention to the healthcare vote.
One of them said, “I just don’t understand how people can have so little empathy.” I told her as a rule, conservatives don’t usually care about something until it affects someone they love.
Another was upset that the Dems “did nothing” to stop it. “What were they going to do?” I said. “The Republicans have a large majority in the House. Besides, they’re going to wrap this around their necks in 2018 and then we can kick them to the curb.” She looked doubtful.
“No, really. They’re counting on the Senate to save them from it actually going into effect.”
Anyway, considering I was getting a bunch of tests, it was a surprisingly pleasant day.
“I hope you don’t have to come back, because I don’t want you to have something wrong, but I hope you come back again so we can talk more about politics,” another nurse said.
See? Not everyone is crazy.
