A lot, it seems. For starters:
Like many people who hoped the stars had finally aligned for a fundamental overhaul of our health care system, I have been going through all of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ stages of grief and loss — denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance — as I’ve watched what has been happening in the Senate. I moved toward acceptance this morning as I watched the Senate pass its bill, but — being an incurable optimist — I’m still hopeful that the legislation can be improved when Senate and House conferees meet to determine what the final bill will look like.
But even if all the problems of the Senate bill can’t be fixed in conference, Congress must send the president a bill to sign — and soon.
