15. 2014 is going to be a mess
It'll be interesting to watch as the full truth of the bill dawns on people. The bad has been so downplayed and delayed and the positives so over-polished and moved forward that a serious misimpression has been created. All by design.

But by then, I won't be furious. I'll be too depressed watching all these people struggle because of what my party has done to them.
