I do not bring up politics in the breakroom. But today, one of my co-workers did. Specifically, about the healthcare bill that just passed. First, her statements were about how it would be paid for. I said a tax on indoor tanning - which is hilarious and true, and I thought it would be the end of it.

Then she brings up that the government would pay for abortions. AHGH! NO! I explained why that is not true, what the Hyde Amendment is, ect. This does not reflect whether or not abortion services should be healthcare or not, as I think it should. I just hate it when people are factually wrong.

In this particular case, I am pretty sure that I didn't get though. Which is a shame, because we were arguing about reality, which should be a fairly neutral point.
