Merry Christmas USA: Healthcare Reform Passes Senate

Thanks to a handful of Senators and the majority leader Senator Reid, the United States Senate has finally passed healthcare reform, the first such legislation in decades. While not everything I wanted or indeed hoped it would be, it remains as ever, a starting point for the future to build on. The legislation itself still has a few hurdles left to overcome but I think most pundits would agree that the Senate was by far the greatest of those hurdles.

The bill now goes to conference committee where more additions and subtractions will probably be hashed out. There of course remains issues such as this that need looking into as well. However, in the end, the legislation can’t be much less than it already is which means some 20 million more people will be able to have healthcare coverage… and that my friends is something to be very thankful for indeed. Happy holidays to everyone celebrating and not, here and around the world.
