Health Care Reform Is Good

I'm looking at the 10 major new health reform benefits that take effect today. They look nice! Democratic incumbents who voted for health care reform should let people know about them.

There was lots of media attention towards the long, depressing, grinding process of health care reform and comparatively little towards the actual details of the legislation. Insofar as campaigns can change people's minds about who to vote for, it would seem that there's plenty of upside in proudly explaining the advantages of the bill. Most people may not be aware that it cuts the deficit by $1.2 trillion over 20 years, and will need reminding that it bans discrimination on the basis of pre-existing conditions. Representatives and Senators who voted for the bill should tell them!
