Why Congress Can't Write a Good Health-Care Bill

Due to the Senate starting to the debate on healthcare reform, I'm going to hold off “Institutional Versus Entrepreneurial Financials” a day or two to comment on health reform.

Question: what is the most overriding concern regarding health reform legislation? Is it a bill that covers all Americans? Is it reducing insurance premiums? Is it a public option? Is it reducing long-term costs? Is it tort reform? Is it making the United States the best healthcare system in the world?

The answer to all of the above is “NO!”

The only single overriding criteria for Health Care Reform is: “Can the Democrats get 60 votes to allow the bill to be voted on”

That’s right, the only criteria is: “Can 60 votes be found”

Am I the only one that thinks this is a crummy way of changing or improving our health care system?
