It seems your Republicans have got themselves a little (or possibly a large) victory: due to some procedural irregularities the healthcare reform bill is to be voted again!

In combination with their lobbying and death threats, this time it might turn out different than the 212-219 result.
Although the proposed healthcare system doesn't seem to be the perfect system - at least finally you had one that could be altered and optimized to a system that actually works.

Well, good luck over there

Yeah, it's being laid out as a few minor technicalities that need to be sorted out
but I wouldn't be surprised if this whole farce drags out a lot longer.

I find it terrifying so many are completely happy to pass half-assed bills into enforceable laws in the hopes that one day that law could be changed into something worthwhile. Completely disregarding or ignoring all of the lives that will be altered and affected under the half-assed bill.

Imagine if, when pushing to outlaw certain drugs, the gov just passed a "ban all the drugs" bill into law and later on amended it to not ban antibiotics and anticoagulants but still ban '___' and meth? Eventually the people would get the law they wanted but while the gear grind and the wheels turn millions die of infections and heart attacks.

This bill as it is doesnt change anything for anyone save an increase is taxes and premiums payed to the insurance companies.

Just like the governments big mortgage help that was deemed yesterday to be "essentially meaningless". TARP foreclosure plan "essentially meaningless" But they just had to do something!?!?!?!? Like reactionary neanderthals.
