One Response to Gov. Ritter to sign health legislation

  1. Who cares if they think it’s fair? If women are statistically higher risk they should pay more to join the risk pool. Since when has life ever been fair? If politicians are suddenly interested in “fair” then maybe we should start addressing the disparities between the elected elite and the rest of us. How ’bout it, fellas?
