They did it

The Senate health care reform package just passed the house with 219 votes, three over the 216 they needed.

Finally! It’s not the reform I would have chosen, and it’s not perfect. Hell, it’ll never be perfect. What it can do, though, is save thousands of American lives every year, and prevent hundreds of thousands of medical bankruptcies.

Tomorrow, I will be happy and at peace. Tuesday, I’ll contact my representative and senators about cap and trade. Or Medicare part E (for “everyone”). Or immigration reform. Or for expanding the insurance exchanges to be national in size.

It’s good. It’s fine. For once, I’m pleased.
