After much angst and drama, the real work on health care reform now begins
The political theater that was made by the year-long health care reform debate will now be followed by months, if not years of action (or inaction) to bring the plan to reality of the lives of Americans. This we know, the final chapter of this sweeping change in national social policy has not been written. More than 30 million on the uninsured will get health benefits, but time will tell if they are satisfied with the product and if taxpayers are getting a fair break on the investment of these dollars from the public troth. All members of the current congress will be retired or voted out of office by the time we learn the benefits and the negatives of this legislation.
Now that the historic health care reform plan passed in the House in a rare all-day Sunday session, March 21, the full impact of the bill will not be known for years. And that proposition assumes that the bill survives the legal challenges now threatened by opposition both in Washington and beyond. So that’s one thing that hasn’t changed: The litigious nature of our society provides a perverse counterpoint to almost every action by lawmakers.
WASHINGTON – It’s not just change to believe in – it’s change that’s real after the U.S. House of Representatives voted Sunday night for a sweeping overhaul of American health care.

Sometimes, I engage the contributors of posts with a comment about my own experience and what follows is an example of such an encounter.
My almost more than 5,000 followers on social media and blogs know very well that my major attraction to social media and microblogging had its origins with my 2006 DX with mantle cell lymphoma. This medium proved to be the best way to communicate my treatment progress during these last dozen years. For a native Floridian with family members residing coast-to-coast, blogs and social media are a godsend for communication.
Thanks to everyone who offered time to read and comment here. Truly, I don't know what the posts have done for you, but your presence has been helpful to me. Of course, the content reaches well beyond social media with more than 5,000 followers on a family of…
