Some good information about the bill that was passed last night. Personally, I don't think that it goes far enough, as I'm one of those folks who favors a single-payer system, but I'm thankful that something is being done. Extending medical insurance to an additional 12% of Americans is definitely A Good Thing.
The primary reason that I (and many others) voted for President Obama was to see change brought to our failing health care system. While I don't believe this is a full fix, I am thankful that he and others in Congress made the bold choice to work to bring this to fruition. I believe there is still work to be done, but I am thankful that some were willing to stick their necks out to see that the least of these are able to receive some kind of coverage.
