It will be good for a change after Thurs. to stop hearing about the health bill on every channel-at least until Congress returns.Forgetting the merits of the bill,the methodolgy stinks.
PARTISAN-SECRETIVE-UNDERHANDED SELLING OF VOTES-SCARE TACTICS-FALSE DEADLINES-
In the end it is not clear what will be accomplished that made this fight worth it.No one has really analyzed who and why millions do not have insurance-including potential medicaid recipients who just never signed up, illegal immigrants,young healthy people who will probably opt to pay a fine rather than join and so on.
The insurance companies get millions of new clients, without affecting theit anti-trust protection. Despite an Obama campaign pledge big Pharma prevented the importation of cheap but safe drugs and they also beat back the generics.
All in all, not a proud moment for democracy or the legislative process.

Today the WSJ also outlines the steps Ehud Barack will take to clamp down on the settlements.These include military forces and drones.Next should be detention camps!
FOR SHAME - EVEN AS ARAB COSTRUCTION GOES ON UNDISTURBED.
