Thursday Night Health Care

leave a comment »

Let’s start with health care. With the Senate bill out, most of the lefty politics blogs are trying to figure out the details of what’s next. A few highlights:

* The Senate bill by the numbers.
* What takes effect before 2014? Ezra Klein elaborates with a longer list.
* States will probably be able to opt out immediately, though I doubt many will.
* Reid, obviously concerned that I don’t totally hate him lately, explicitly rules out reconciliation.
* At least the self-proclaimed “centrists” remain consistently terrible. Bayh and Nelson have confirmed they’ll bring the bill to the floor, so I guess there’s that.
