Health Care Passed -- March 21, 2010

Despite the grotesque racism of images like this, despite the McCarthyite cries of socialism and nazism from the Tea Baggers, the House passed the health care reform bill and the reconciliation with the Senate version. It will be interesting to see what happens to the Republican Party. They didn't do well for a long time after they fought against Social Security and Medicare. People keep talking about a government takeover of healthcare, but this bill keeps everything in the private sector.

I feel good about it, but this isn't the end of the debates. It's good to see some social justice.
