The yeas have it

The U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed its version of a health care reform bill 220-215 tonight, and  republican representative  Joseph Cao from Louisiana’s 2nd district, the lone “yes” vote from the GOP, emerges as the congressional darling of the moment.

Do I think this bill is good? Not particularly. Prohibiting recipients of federal subsidies from purchasing plans that cover abortion will really hurt some of the most vulnerable women and families in this country.  That’s just one of many disappointments in the bill. I hate that this is the best we can do.

But am I glad it passed?


Now on to senate.
