  •  Whether or Not The Bill is a Political Winner (5+ / 0-)

    is a separate question than whether or not it mostly contains valuable reforms.  I can see where you're coming from, but hopefully people will be just as interested in results as they are in what we're prematurely (though not illogically) calling the "bad" parts of the bill.

    •  largest middle class tax hike ever (0+ / 0-)

      to line the pockets of insurance execs.  I think that will catch the attention of the voters more than the few minor reforms in the bill, many of which won't even take effect until 2014.

        ...with the Republicans framing of the issue, which oddly enough is identical to your framing.

        •  you mean their fear that we are (0+ / 0-)

          going to continue to make it better?

          Go back and read the blockquote on John McCain...we know what they will do and it won't be good for any of us.

          Sorry that you don't agree with the framing.

          What if the hokeypokey is what it's all about?

            Nothing but a tax cut going straight to insurance companies.  If I did I'd oppose the bill.

        myself who is likely to change jobs over the summer, you'll excuse me if I don't consider the bill to have only "a few minor reforms".

        I'll take what I can get for now and continue to work to get the rest.
