    I'm glad some form of universal health care was passed. Single payer would have been a lot better because the insurance companies, needless middlemen, would be wiped out. The profit factor in health care costs would be eliminated and gov't could control costs by limiting what it pays out to private hospitals and doctors. Too bad dems and republicans are mostly sell outs to big business. It's interesting republicans can be against the bill that passed, which cuts the deficit and undoubtedly will save lives. Knowing that about half of bankruptcies are due to medical costs, and that 3 quarters of this half had insurance (!) is absurd. Too bad single payer, or at least the public option did not make it as well with the bill because controlling costs is going to only get worse.
