Health care “reform” has passed, after Bart Stupak and company sold out for a fig leaf. I suppose that there is nothing left to write about health care policy for the time being, other than (a) it’s time to work on killing reconciliation in the Senate, and (b) this health care reform bill had better work, otherwise we are all in trouble.
I’ll add this as well on the political side: If the Republicans are able to win control of Congress this year, there ought to be no pretense of bipartisanship whatsoever in the next Congress. Democrats ran roughshod over Republicans in order to achieve tonight’s results. The favor ought to be returned.
