So much for bipartisanship. A large number of the Democratic caucus voted against this bill, too.
I think we all agree that health care reform needs to happen. If the House worked on something more reasonable and targeted, say somewhere in between the $1,200,000,000,000.00 Pelosi/Obama plan and the $61 billion plan that Republicans offered (which CBO said would reduce premiums, cut the deficit by $68 billion over years and cover 84% of the population), I would feel a lot better about this situation.
I think this thing is going to have a much tougher time in the Senate, though.
