Senate Healthcare Bill still too Weak
If you watched Rachel Maddow last night you may be feeling as uneasy about this as I. The opt out feature is not good (though Medicare had this same feature and no state opted out), but that individuals who have crappy insurance can't opt in to a better public plan is worse. And 2013 is too long to wait. As Senator Ron Wyden said, we progressives have to stay at this and demand to get more. Keep calling, writing. It's not over.
