So .. what is it for?

It appears that Democrats have lost sight of what they set out to accomplish with the health care bill. Worst. Bill. Ever.

This legislation will not reduce health-care costs; the Obama administration’s own actuaries have just reported that it will increase them. It is unlikely to make Americans healthier: The evidence tying extensions of insurance to improved health outcomes is surprisingly weak. Insurance will reduce the financial anxiety of some people; but others will find theirs increased. Some will still lack insurance, but now have to pay a fine for the privilege. Some will be paying higher premiums and taxes.

So, why do they continue? So Obama can give himself an A.
