The worst thing we could do to memorialize Senator Ted Kennedy!

RIP Senator Kennedy

RIP Senator Kennedy

This is a rare political post on my blog, and it’s really not even that political.  It’s something that I hope will be taken as a common sense observation/plea.  There is no question that a national health care plan was  Senator Ted Kennedy’s driving issue throughout his political career.  I am for an overhaul of the public health care system.  No one should be without health insurance.  I want there to be a long hard debate before a bill is passed.  I want the people voting on the bill to actually understand the bill.  I want my representatives to understand it so thoroughly that they can explain it to me in plain, legalese- free English.

What I fear is that some will use Senator Kennedy’s passing as an opportunity to ram a health care plan through Congress in an attempt to provide him with a lasting memorial.  A bad health care plan is worse than no health care plan.   Better this thing be right than quick.  That would be a memorial worthy of Senator Kennedy’s legacy.
