Wow, this takes me completely by surprise. I thought it would take a court case to get a Bill like this written and passed. This isn't very characteristic of Bush IMO. I think he's trying to make amends for the previous 7 years and some odd months of screw ups and shortcomings.

Good news nonetheless. If anything this is going to help a lot of people who don't or wouldn't have health insurance. A small bandaid on a gaping wound.

Sounds good except wheres the small print where it no doubt says the government needs everyones DNA profile on record in order to uphold this new law *insert creative reasoning to justify small print here*. Nothings ever free folks!

I wouldn't be surprised at this - I would be even MORE suspicious. It is often the case in 'nice sounding' bill names, that the opposite function occurs. IMHO this sets the case for all sorts of nasty precedents.
