The State of the Waters

Despite violent threats, galling obstructionism, and perfervid rhetoric that has bounded from absurdist to alarmist and back again, the House and Senate have passed health care reform into law. Health insurance reform is a fait accompli, and this union is a little more perfect for it; whether it is calmer and saner remains to be seen.

The politics will be what they will be, but for those curious about how the reforms affect people's lives, Matt Yglesias has compiled a helpful summary of some of the immediate, noteworthy, and positive changes. More reform is needed, but this is a start.

A little steadfastness can resist a big sea of bullshit.
