a clean bill of health.

but seriously folks, what the hell is in the health care bill anyway?

edit: dreday posted this little gem yesterday... here is a nice clean summary of the health care act, and here is a nice clean summary of the health care bill that was signed into law (which includes the financial aid overhaul as well).

those preclude the need to read the either partys biased summaries, but if youre looking to compare and contrast... here is a nice clean summary with plenty of room for bias, and here is less clean section-by-section summary with less room for bias.

im willing to bet a beverage that most of the people protesting have never read a single summary. im sure theyre content to fit the bill into their worldview as containing one word: socialism.

all in favor of socialism say aye. (aye!) socialism passes. (gavel.)

not that everyone in the opposition is delusional. the gop counter-proposal is actually pretty reasonable. here is an obviously biased summary, and here is a less biased section-by-section summary.

if you can ignore the creepy picture in the header, nancy pelosi's website has a nice collection of health care related links.

ps... im willing to bet a second beverage that some of the people protesting have never even read a book. just sayin...
