It's time

Posted By on Fri, Oct 30, 2009 at 9:11 AM

Paul Krugman says it's time to take a stand on health care reform.  The bills up for debate aren't perfect, he says, but the proposals are much stronger than anyone could have expected and would lead to near universal coverage. 

As a result, everyone in the political class — by which I mean politicians, people in the news media, and so on, basically whoever is in a position to influence the final stage of this legislative marathon — now has to make a choice. The seemingly impossible dream of fundamental health reform is just a few steps away from becoming reality, and each player has to decide whether he or she is going to help it across the finish line or stand in its way.

For conservatives, of course, it’s an easy decision: They don’t want Americans to have universal coverage, and they don’t want President Obama to succeed.

You know where we stand.  What say you, Sen. Lincoln?
