Healthcare reform legislation in ~ five minutes (and compared to war funding).

Today’s Times editorial page summarizes the healthcare legislation in its present form, including its impact on virtually everyone (even people who have coverage they don’t want to give up). Reading the editorial takes about five minutes.

Putting things in perspective, approximately $668 billion has been allocated in the federal budget for the war in Iraq; $222 billion has been allocated for the war in Afghanistan. Disclosure about the numbers shown here. To state the obvious, our war costs expended in fewer than seven years nearly cover the worst case financial scenario for healthcare reform over ten years. One dares say the healthcare returns will be greater. LLII.
