The Atlantic's James Falllows: The Significance of The Health Vote

Political observer and Atlantic Monthly writer James Fallows on the significance of the health care reform vote tonight. Fallows hits the nail on the head:
For now, the significance of the vote is moving the United States FROM a system in which people can assume they will have health coverage IF they are old enough (Medicare), poor enough (Medicaid), fortunate enough (working for an employer that offers coverage, or able themselves to bear expenses), or in some other way specially positioned (veterans; elected officials)... TOWARD a system in which people can assume they will have health-care coverage. Period.

I'm going to treat myself to some good old right-wing radio tomorrow. I just love to hear the bleating, the whining, the crying and the lying.

The Democrats just found out what it feels like to win big. Here's hoping they like it and want to repeat it.

Grover Norquist: This one's for you.

And I'm sure Fox News / Glenn Beck will need to order another carton of "The Omen" soundtracks. They must wear one out every few weeks.
