It’s About Time

They’re legislating.

I am glad. I look forward to the Senate engaging in open debate about health care in the United States. I look forward to votes on the Senate floor. I look forward to them doing the hard work of talking, listening, compromising, seeking to craft the best law they can.

There is no assurance a bill will pass the Senate, let alone both houses of Congress. There are many obstacles to change–not the least of which is the pervasive influence of money (most, but not all, of which belongs to those who oppose change, at least as it affects them), not to mention the power of misinformation and just plain idiocy.

But at least we can continue this national conversation, and our legislators will do what we send them to Washington to do.

It’s about time.
