American care

The rich white pseudo-Christians in Washington are gathering their forces to undo the belated act of civic decency which was the Affordable Care Act. That the cruel and feckless replacement is called the American Health Care Act tells you all you need to know about their view of "care" - and of "America." Exclusion and exploitation are their apple pie. I hope it will be sooner rather than later that we look back at the Obama years as the start of the more perfect union which eventually emerges, and the current racist frenzy to erase all trace of them as the last gasp of an exhausted narrowness, a failure to see that American democracy is all about care for all.

(F-R-O-G, incidentally, just means fig, raspberry, orange peel and ginger, nothing like feckless Republican overlord gridlock.)
