Hey, everybody, while world leaders were busy hanging out in Cophenhagen and pretty much being the biggest non-story of the year, we got ourselves a health care bill!

Granted, we don’t have a perfect health care bill. We don’t have the health care bill that I would have asked for in a perfect world. But we don’t live in a perfect world. We live in a strange, imperfect, and often downright unpleasant world. And we got a strange, imperfect, and occasionally downright unpleasant health care bill.

But you know what? It’s a start. And despite what some people would argue, people who I sympathize with and whose frustration I understand, it’s much, much better than nothing.

But the Senate legislation, which shouldn’t have much of a problem clearing the next few cloture votes it has ahead of it, does still have some questions to answer. For example – will insurance companies be required to provide coverage for new and terrifying genetically engineered bacteria like this one?
