Debate on passage of healthcare reform has just begun in the House of Representative. Those in favor of the bill have successfully hurdled each of the preceding test votes on this bill, so hopefully the bill will be successfully passed.
It's been a long days, with the same lies and half-truths put forward by the opponents. This should not surprise us, as this has been the Republican's plan since the beginning.
The bill being discussed will expand coverage to over 30 million currently uninsured individuals and will bring meaningful reform to the out-of-control for-profit health insurance companies.
This is a day that matters, and hopefully a day we can celebrate later.
