Schoolhouse Rock and the Health Care Reform Bill
Although it was highly anticlimactic and awfully frustrating for all parties involved, this week signified a historic move on the health care reform bill.
So what exactly happened? Well, the US Senate voted 60-40 -- not in favor of passing a specific bill --- but in favor of ending debate and stopping further filibustering on a specific set of amendments to the health care reform bill known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act [full bill and amendments can be found here (.pdf)]
Yes, anticlimactic, but a huge leap at the same time.
