Health Care Bill

This short piece by Matt Taibbi, political reporter for Rolling Stone, sums up things regarding the health care bill that is currently working its tortured way through Congress. In particular, I like the following sentence from his article. "Our government doesn't exist to protect from interests, it exists to protect interests from voters." Indeed. I doubt that the US government has ever really been anything like "of the people, for the people and by the people," but it's transparently the polar opposite of that right now.
