We survived a year of stalemate and shutdowns, shouting matches, sideshows and sh*t-storms, and somehow, despite setbacks and silliness, millions of Americans begin the new year insured.
We made it through bogus budget battles, callous compromises, cave-ins and calls for cuts, to a new year that starts with new rhetoric: a President, Pope & nation talking about inequality.
We stumbled through saber-rattling with Syria, and slogged through Snowden's NSA surprises to a January that finds us in fewer wars than a year before and fresh force for reforms in our intelligence operations.
2013 was a year we endured. Will 2014 see more Americans insured, our privacy ensured and our safety net assured? We can hope and work, but we can never be sure.
Show of up for a sure bet of socializing and sipping as we share New Year's resolutions and revels at your local progressive social club.
