Megan McArdle on the Healthcare Bill

Megan McArdle

No bill this large has ever before passed on a straight party-line vote, or even anything close to a straight party-line vote. No bill this unpopular has ever before passed on a straight party-line vote. We’re in a new political world. I’m not sure I understand it.

That doesn’t make me feel good about the future…

UPDATE: The Senate vote took place at 1 o’clock in the morning… speculation is that Harry Reid needed this ASAP in order to get it to the House before Christmas. My take is this piece of crap wouldn’t stand the light of normal working hours.

People will look back on this and wonder at why there wasn’t greater outrage. Reminds me of another late night meeting involving leadership…
