Health care reform

The internet is abuzz with the passing of President Obama's healthcare bill.

I'll say it up front: I am a liberal. I am pleased that Obama actually recognized that we had a problem with healthcare in this country and made moves to fix the problem.

Was this the best way to fix the problem? Well, parts of it will help a lot of people. And Obama, albeit reluctantly, signed an executive order ensuring that federal funding would not be used for abortions, essentially keeping the Hyde Amendment intact. I'm holding him to that :-)

As for the rest? We'll see. Both sides (liberal and conservative) have good points and good reasons to be nervous.
