State of the Union 2003

Ok, this is a little experiment in publishing. I’m watching the ABC coverage with Peter Jennings and as they’re panning the floor I see Tom Ridge and Laura Bush.

[905] Sgt. At Arms announced the President. President enters and shakes hands of all of those who would normally not kiss his ass.

Bush gives a quick synapsys.

Largest tax relief in a generation. Tough reforms for corporate criminals. “Good start”

“Employment for everyone” This is a little funny to me, in all reality, there are a lot of people who really don’t want to work. So why is this ideal of everyone working being pushed?

Healthcare for all americans. In reality this is already happening. Costs too mush….bullshit. Will not be solved with a national healthcare …..

Healthcare for seniors….how about for young people too.

Put nurses and providers back in charge of medicine….WTF? Who do they think works at hospitals. Most hospitals ran by clinical people, have business problems. Because clinical people aren’t business minded.
