Good news for those of us that believe in universal healthcare.

Yay for its supporters. Natch for the "it's not a mandate, it's a tax" bit.
Boo for its detractors. Can't wait to see how Fox News spins this.

I don't know if it's good news. The bill is a gargantuan overly complex mess of red-tape that panders more to the current healthcare lobby than it helps those actually in need. Like the tax code, the whole health care system needs to be scrapped and rebuilt. This doesn't so that, but just tosses layers of complexities on top the current one. I'm happy if it helps people that need it, but wish it could have been done better.
