The Obama administration and congressional Democrats long ago gave up any pretense of working to rationally reform American health care. The exercise now underway in the Senate is a mad dash to get to 60 votes, and nothing more. That’s why some Democratic senators who had no idea exactly what is in the “breakthrough deal” announced by majority leader Harry Reid last week immediately hailed it as a milestone. They’re for anything that creates a sense of “momentum” and “inevitability.” – The Weekly Standard
I’ve given up trying to understand what is going on with the Health Care Bills. The complexity is a feature not a bug for some….
Update: As the commenters remind me, rightly, the sausage-making is never pleasant to watch. I guess I’m expressing frustration. I am trying to be a good citizen and doctor. I just don’t understand the stuff even as I try. Ugh.
Another Update: Commenter Marty writes, “All the talk about mandated coverage, community rating, Medicare buy-in, ‘is it a tax?’ and all the rest is just the topic du jour as the Dems try to glue wings on this dead bird and then pretend it can fly.” (I edited, for clarity, the first update above).
