As I explained in the previous post about education in California, it is structural barriers against taxing the wealthy (the people who do have money) that have led to the largest state's inability to balance a budget, provide for its residents, or even run a less than laughable government. Insofar as the (d)evolution of the health care reform cements the principle that Washington cannot tax in order to do the work of government, the "reform" is a deform.
Nonetheless, on balance I hope they pass the thing. For all it's many faults, some people would get access to doctors who don't have that now. And I would rather be able to agitate for its improvement than have to agitate solely for Democrats to get some backbones.
(Saturday scenes and scenery will return next week. I figure regulars don't need another photo essay right after the one posted yesterday. Making decisions like that with no argument is one of the perks of having one's own blog.)
