Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!
This past week saw, amongst other events:
*Now that the Health Care Reform Act has become law, President Barack Obama admitted he urged Congress to take action on the issue not only for the sake of the uninsured, but to prevent America from becoming morally and economically bankrupt.
*Meanwhile, the Obama administration has turned its attention to financial reform to hopefully prevent future instances of potential bank failures and other economic downturns. Congressional Republicans have vowed to fight this measure every step of the way too.
*Some say that due to their recent actions, the Republican Party will suffer, especially in the area of campaign donations; after it was revealed that they had a "fund raiser" at a West Hollywood strip club. Reports state that the employee delegated to make the arrangements for this excursion has been fired, but that so far no action has been taken towards the party executives involved.
*The I-Pad officially goes on sale this weekend.
*The United States Government is urging anyone who used the lead laced Chinese sheet rock to completely replace the suspect pieces. However, no word yet as to who will have to bear the brunt of the replacement expenses.
