Health care reform timeline

2009 - Barely passes in House.
2011 - Defunded in new GOP-led House
2013 - Repealed with bill signed by new GOP president. Then we do it right.
UPDATE: Welcome St. Louis readers. Check around and see a few more of my opinions.

Just 5 votes in favour - how little is that?! Your country is seriously divided...

When something passes just by 5 votes, what is the right thing to do? Change the bill? 5 votes shouldn't decide the future of anything in my opinion..

I'm glad I'm only watching it from abroad - wouldn't like this to be happening in here.

Good luck,

"Doing it right", in my Federalist opinion, means unwinding the stack of bad legislation for the last century, and restoring a meaningful three-level government.
