      and just wait for the scandals when some large companies think they can flout the restriction of spending 80 percent of premiums on actual care. There will be a court challenge, and it will come from insurance companies, and Democrats and Republicans alike will totally cave. Just watch.

      I mean come on. "Obamacare" was pretty much written by Newt Gingrich, at least the basis of it.

      Again, as I said, it's better than nothing. But lots of things are better than nothing. Calling this a victory for progressives is like calling wet "dry".
