Health bill gets new life

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 8:40 AM

What's this? Congress is going to pass health care reform legislation? A very optimistic account from Talking Points Memo, which provides several explanations for why a slimmed-down bill is moving forward. One of them:

Congressional Democrats have been breathing a sigh of relief because they say finishing health care is the only way to stave off massive losses this fall.

"Not passing a bill means that all the lies the Republicans told about the bills would end up being true in people's minds," a House Democratic aide said.

Yes. How can doing some good for tens of millions of Americans be bad?
