Everyone's trying to cheer me up. It isn't working.

My despondency and despair are only deepening with my growing awareness of the awful implications of Obamacare being upheld as a tax.  And, of course, we've already got the Senate Republicans backpedaling about repeal.  It's going to be hard!  WAAAAAAAHHHH!
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — It’s on his to-do list, but U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the odds are against repealing the health care law championed by President Barack Obama.
[...]
“If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I’d say the odds are still on your side,” McConnell said. “Because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.”

So the excuses begin.  But what, then, do we pay you for?  Oh...yeah...well, according to Chief Justice Roberts, nothing.  Certainly not to defend the Constitution.

So thanks for the pep talk, but I'll stay depressed for now, if you don't mind.  Maybe tomorrow I will muster some resolve and buck up.

In the meantime, I need a story....


Okay...that didn't work.  Maybe some inspiring words of encouragement....


I'm going to start drinking now.
