bravo to Obama for health-coverage breakthrough

 

Another thread here loads the dice for negative comments; here, it's bravo Obama ! He deserves it.

I think the compromise voted yesterday  is quite good - in the circumstances - and do not want to wait another 37 years for a similar chance ( the period since the failed Ted Kennedy compromise in 1973)

A good assessment of its historic importance by E.J. Dionne:

Corporate welfare bill to private health insurers passed in US

I figure we can use this thread for the horror stories that are sure to emerge in the months ahead, about people who have been forced to buy private insurance (or have to pay a fine), and then have been bankrupted by medical costs when those shitty private plans refuse to pay their claims.

I don't really get why so many progressives are celebrating.  The Republicans couldn't have come up with a better plan to reward their corporate buddies than this one.
