Yesterday's health care reform bill passed. This is a start. A start
"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.
