Why is Reform Dragging? ...and a Reality Check

Considering how many problems there are with our slapdash health care system, you'd think meaningful reform would be a snap.... right? But it drags, and now the U.S. Congress is fleeing town for their well-earned (sic) summer vacation with the job barely begun.

A large part of the problem was outlined yesterday by Steven Pearlstein in his column in the Washington Post. And Steve Benen attempted an analysis in his column, Political Animal in The Washington Monthly today.

Finally, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has offered another post in her MythBusting series, explaining the truth behind the false allegations being spread by some opponents of health care reform.

It affects all of us, sooner or later. If you care at all, contact your elected reps in Congress (links in earlier post here).

UPDATE: More MythBusting, this time from the horse's mouth, the White House's new Reality Check website. -JL-
