US Healthcare Bill Passes the House of Representatives

It is a good beginning. But according to some observers insurance companies stand to benefit the most as 32 million people will be added to healthcare insurance under this bill and their cost will be paid by public money. Nonetheless they have to start somewhere. And someday, maybe someday, the US will have public healthcare with single payer, like Canada. After observing the games played by the US Congress our Parliamentary system looks much better.

Moreover, Regpugs can still kill the bill when it goes before the Senate. There is a smaller bill called "fixes" to the Senate bill which was sent to the House. Any change in this"fixes" bill may start a new storm, as any change will require House approval – Déjà vu all over again.
