We hear the republicans are still nibbling around the edges of Health Care ReformIt’s just over “for now” we’re told.  I’m among those who believe a better bill is much better than a faster bill so I can handle some delay but it IS disappointing to think that the differing factions within the party didn’t come together earlier – you had 7 years!- to present a proper plan that would pass easily and might even attract a democrat or two.

The same is true for our consultant/businessman/ blogger buddy Tim Bryce who wrote a good column just before the current effort crashed.  It’s well worth a look.

“I would have liked to have seen a Feasibility Study built in a Congressional Committee with input from both parties, not just one. A frank and open discussion would be one way to de-politicize the bill and build consensus, something we haven't seen in our nation's capitol for quite some time. Wouldn't it be interesting to read an accurate description of the strengths and weaknesses of the current system? In addition, I would have also liked to have seen someone think beyond mere insurance and consider such things as Tort Reform and the nightmare medical systems now in place, but such is not the case.”

There’s always a heaping helping of common sense when Tim takes to the keyboard. Checkout his column here: timbryce.com
