Senate passes heath care bill

My prediction that health care reform was about to go down in flames proved incorrect as the Senate passed a bill on a party line vote. Of course there are still ways for final passage to elude the Democrats but I didn't expect them to get this far.

Perhaps an example of seeing the world as you wish it to be as I was rooting against them. There are problems with our health care system but in my view the current reform bills will just make matters worse. They do nothing to reduce costs, in fact they are likely to increase them substantially with little benefit. So ultimately they are mostly just a giant gift to the medical industry which is already consuming an unreasonable proportion of the nation's resources.
