Well, it seems like we go back and forth: two days ago it seemed like the Senate health care reform bill was in trouble, then yesterday it seemed back on track, and now it seems to be in trouble again. Check back tomorrow to see if we're back up on the other side of the seesaw.
If you want a bill to pass, all these negotiations can be pretty dicouraging. There seems to be little doubt that the liberals, single-payer advocates and reformers who want health care reform are dissatisfied with the results that will come out of the Congressional sausage factory. Here's Kevin Drum making the case that they should hold their noses and support it anyway.
Or, to quote Ezra Klein of the Washington Post:
"The cost controls may be insufficient, but in the status quo, they simply don't exist. Private insurance isn't optimal, but it's better than the total absence of coverage."
