That said, I do hope that, on a wide-scale, the bill functions well enough, with little need for significant revision. I'm nervous because it's an enormous undertaking and something that, obviously, is remarkably contentious in this country. We'll see what the year looks like when everything is in place.
For the record, if it isn't already clear, I have always been for healthcare reform, but on a much grander scale. I honestly think we should have kept the public option on the original bill, but at least this is a step in the right direction.
Now, for my resolution, which is only indirectly related to the healthcare bill:
I've noticed over the last few months that I have been consuming an abnormal amount of garbage in the form of soda and related things. So, as an experiment, I am going to cut out all soda consumption from my diet for 30 days, starting today. I'll be cutting out other junk foods as well (namely candy bars, though I will splurged once in a while).
Part of this is because I have been eating too much crap; part of this is because I want to see what happens to my body. If I have a heart attack, you'll all be the second to know (since I'll be the first).
Wish me luck!
