"For now, the significance of the vote is:

Moving the United States

FROM ~ a system in which people can assume they will have health coverage IF they are:
  • Old enough (Medicare),
  • Poor enough (Medicaid),
  • Fortunate enough (working for an employer that offers coverage,
    or able themselves to bear expenses),
  • Or, in some other way specially positioned (veterans; elected officials)...
TOWARD ~ a system in which people can assume they will have health-care coverage. Period."
