A bill passes through the House...

So the House passed the Health Care Reform Bill. I need to actually take a look at this. All of the jive and bullshit surrounding this whole issue just makes me run in the other direction, but now that something is actually happening, I have a strange desire to actually be informed on the issue.

First thoughts: Health Care Reform? Good. Government Option? Good. Mandatory Insurance with the burden on the consumer? BAD! This was the main reason I fell into the Obama camp instead of the Hillary camp during the primaries.

The whole way this has been handled by, well, just about everyone on either side of the issue makes me feel a little sick. But before I start pounding my keys with my fists about it, I need to do some reading.
