HEALTH CARE REFORM PASSES: This is either the greatest accomplishment by the federal government ever and a return to the fabled Camelot of the early 60s except really real this time, or a full-scale government takeover of the health care system with mandated suicide booths on your 50th birthday unless you're an illegal immigrant and then you get free healthcare and free cyborg parts as your fleshy bits wear out. No inbetween! Politics is completely binary, I'm told.
(Look, it's a big giveaway to the insurance companies, more or less. And I really hate these Romulan-esque tactical arguments for it, your "but if we pass this, real reform will be more possible!" sort of things. I mean that might be true but it isn't going to get me excited for this particular bill.)
