Congress Passes Healthcare – I Told You So
This evening, the U.S. House of Representatives passed Obamaâ€™s healthcare bill.
Two months ago, I was the odd man out on a Business News Network panel (watch video). The day after the Massachusetts by-election, I was talking about Democrats redoubling their efforts and being more aggressive in putting forward a progressive agenda.
By contrast, one of my co-panellists said, â€œThe resounding message here is that the healthcare initiative in the U.S. is dead.â€ The other suggested that Ted Kennedyâ€™s death had also killed the cause of American healthcare reform.
Anyway, it is great that my more optimistic assessment has proved closer to the mark.
