Writing for The Atlantic
on yesterday's historic step toward health care reform, James Fallows puts everything into perspective:
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.
Amen.Thanks, Jeff. Photo by Lawrence Jackson for whitehouse.gov.
