  •  You should stop back sometimes! (8+ / 0-)

    Why, oh why, jump off the ledge?  You'll be missed.

    A truth many seem reluctant to face;

    The bill isn't everything we fought for. But it is, to paraphrase the Speaker, a solid foundation for a better health care system.

    A thing many people seem to be overlooking is the fact that this isn't the one and only time to pass legislation on health care.  If we take a bite out of the problems now, there is nothing stopping us from advancing bills in the future to build on the effort.  It may be easier to advance certain efforts in an environment where some of the changes have already taken place.  It's not like we're closing down the government after this bill is signed.  Some of the best changes may come piecemeal in different bills for years to come.  This one opens the door.  

    Level heads like yours are definitely appreciated in the wake of so much all or nothing thinking.
