As an American person, I found it tiresome that both sides of the aisle claimed to represent "The American People." Let's face it, this is a difficult matter, and neither side had an ownership of us just plain folks.
I have 2 observations at this point:
1. The bill passed, and we should make every effort we can to make it succeed
2. Who is at risk for their vote on this matter? I will posit that some who voted against it will be quesstioned for their choice as much as those who supported the bill.
