But isn’t the same true when a man’s package is too big? Whether you like a guy or not, and whether you agree with him and think he’s cool or not, when he presents you with a giant package, I mean an extraordinarily large, enormous package, isn’t that just as scary as a tiny one?
If a man’s package is too big, we have to be afraid of what it can do. We have to worry that it is going to hurt us even if that’s not what he intended. When a package is gigantic, it often has too much force and unintended consequences.
When I saw that the Health Care Bill Congress just passed was thousands of pages long, I immediately thought “It’s so long, thick and complex that we won’t truly know what it means for us or how it will affect our country for years to come, and no one in Congress probably really knows either.” And that notion scares me a bit. When a package is that big, it just seems like a guy should take it slow. You know, ease into it.
Even though I do agree with parts of this plan, I am having trouble getting over the fact that it is seriously one big ass package. Copyright © 2010 Alison James
