Commence Celebrating!

Hooray! The health care bill made it past all the elephants’ parliamentary tricks and is now really and truly the law of the land. All that’s left now are the endless lawsuits and repeal fights… but I really believe the Republicans have read the country wrong on this one, and the wind will largely leave their sails come November.

Michael Moore’s thoughts on the subject pretty much equal mine.

Excerpt:

“Yes, my Republican friends, even though you have opposed this health care bill, we’ve made sure it is going to cover you, too, in your time of need. I know you’re upset right now. I know you probably think that if you did get wiped out by an illness, or thrown out of your home because of a medical bankruptcy, that you would somehow pull yourself up by your bootstraps and survive. I know that’s a comforting story to tell yourself, and if John Wayne were still alive I’m sure he could make that into a movie for you.

But the reality is that these health insurance companies have only one mission: To take as much money from you as they can — and then work like demons to deny you whatever coverage and help they can should you get sick.

So, when you find yourself suddenly broadsided by a life-threatening illness someday, perhaps you’ll thank those pinko-socialist, Canadian-loving Democrats and independents for what they did Sunday evening.”
