I'll be the first to admit that I've been paying absolutely zero attention to American politics over the last few months. In my defense, the only time I've ever really paid much attention to politics was during graduate school when I had the inestimable joy of living in DC during the Lewinsky years. But I am very, very glad to see this.
Will this actually mean a change in the way the health care system works in America? I dunno, but it's a first step. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
