    I think maybe you meant “edition”?

    I’m all for breaking the ridiculous amount of power given to insurance companies by current policy, but both sides of Congress are stepping over each other to promise not to do that.

    I’m mildly curious about when Hamsher thinks there’s going to be an opportunity to pass this reform, much less something better, if we flippantly Kill the Bill. When there are 65 Democrats in the Senate or the Teabag Republicans decide to negotiate in good faith I suppose.
    Until that time I sincerely invite her to pay for my medical care.

    Samhita, I totally get that. I have been feeling the exact same way. To be perfectly honest, I have been very ambivalent about a lot of stuff in the Obama administration. :P
