major health care bill passes

Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed a sweeping health care bill that will bring health insurance to more than 30 million people who presently go without. The legislation will also protect those with insurance from being denied coverage because they are — wait for it — sick. Think that’s too awful to be true? Read about this young Baltimore family.

I admit I wasn’t confident this day would ever come. But here we are, and Republicans are already threatening to use the bill as a weapon in the upcoming midterm elections. We’ll see.
