Democrats in the House of Representatives, in a drama played out like a soap opera, by using a variety of maneuvers and persuasions, passed landmark legislation on Sunday. Democrats are calling the federal healthcare takeover landmark reform. A number of conservatives see it as landmark looting by leftwing Dems who are expanding the federal government to unprecedented size.
Now all that remains is for the biggest spender in American history, President Barack Obama, to sign the bill and for the Senate to consider changes. That process in the Senate will likely produce a spinoff drama, by the way.
