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.
