I haven't posted much about health care reform in the past several days because I think it's dead. As soon as the bills were pushed back past the August recess I became almost certain that no bill would get passed until after the 2010 elections. At this point, people are so angry that even a stripped-down version of the bill will be politically unfeasible.
I think this is all to the good. America has the best health care system in the world, and we shouldn't mess with success. Until some other country demonstrates a better system, I think we should pretty much stand pat.
