VP’s profanity during health care bill signing shows lack of decorum, respect

Oh, Joe Biden. You do love saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, don’t you?
The trouble with Vice President Biden’s latest gaffe is that, just as this health care legislation was pushed through irreverently, the people who are so joyful about its’ passing are not being sensitive to the fact that many still oppose it. It was passed with no bi-partisanship, through a simple majority instead of the normally required two-thirds vote, and Capitol Hill phone lines were jammed all weekend with constituents asking that this legislation not be passed.
Sure, the pro-government-health-care side won this vote, and it is a big deal. But the gloating use of profanity is not right and shows a glaring disrespect for the Americans who didn’t want this bill passed. We should hold ourselves and our elected officials to a higher standard of respect, especially when passing controversial legislation.
