Health Care – A History Lesson

Editor’s note: The next several posts are from Greg Scandlen. The first one is a reminder of the health care debate during the Clinton Administration.

As we expected, Harry Reid was able to bribe and cajole reluctant Democrats into allowing his bill to go to the floor. The remarkable thing was that it was such a struggle just to get it this far. I am providing a link to a clip from MSNBC’s Morning Joe show in which former Senate staffer Lawrence O’Donnell compares this to 1994 when the Clinton bill went to the floor with unanimous consent, only to die after five days of debate and amendment. It is an extremely important perspective.
