I am getting to that position to where I can say what I wanted to say all along, that I'm ready to vote for health care reform."
No universal single-payer national health insurance. No public option. No Medicare buy-in. No repeal of ant-trust exemption. No divorce between health care and employment. No options for the self-employed, under-employed, or unemployed. Expansion of Medicaid on the backs of cash-strapped state governments (thus "proving" that government-run health care doesn't work and is doomed to fail).
Where's the reform?
I guess "regulating" the health insurance industry to eliminate exclusions and rescission is all the "reform" we're going to get. Plus a complicated new maze of expensive free-market, for-profit plans that the government will force people or their employers to buy and then tax. With lots of loopholes so the insurance companies to carry on their monopoly business as usual, exclusions and rescission and all.
UPDATE: Howard Dean: "This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate."
