Health Care Legislation Passes

The United States has finally moved towards providing health coverage to everyone. 32 million more Americans will have coverage, people with pre-existing illnesses will be protected, and subsidies are in place to help the poorest Americans pay for insurance.

There is considerable cost for doing this. There are tons of articles being written speculating on what happens next, as well as what still needs to happen.

David Sanger's NY Times article "Big Win for Obama, but at what cost?" is one of the more helpful articles I've found so far in putting all of this in perspective.
