An e-mail from D.C.:
What’s funny in a sad sort of way about all this is that Reid keeps telling us that we can’t wait to pass the bill because of all the desperate people who are dying for lack of health insurance. Yet, that very bill’s most significant benefits – those that are designed to get those desperate people the coverage Reid claims their lives depend upon – won’t actually reach those people for about 4 years. So why exactly can’t the bill wait until January 4th, when we’re not going to get the goodies until 2014? Harry, let your people go.
