One wishes Ted Kennedy were alive to see this day. Meanwhile, the 'Party of No' are calling it Happy Dependence Day. Even if this cannot be labelled healthcare reform (more of an healthcare expansion mandate), at least millions of people will be assured healthcare and Big Insurance cannot use pre-existing conditions as a pre-emptive rejection mechanism... To those who prattle on about the deficit, one might add that closing Diego Garcia and other (unnecessary) relics of the cold war can easily cover the recurring costs of this bill.
