Although a bit lengthy, and at times cumbersome, this opinion piece makes a compelling case for passing the health care bill now and smoothing out the inevitable wrinkles later. The author rebuts some of the myths and untruths that have plagued the debate and urges the Democrats to get on with the job whether the Republicans come to their senses or not.

Health care reform is such a no-brainer for me that I am unable to see how any but the health insurance corporations (now that they are people like you and me) and the very stingiest of folks could possibly oppose it. The fiscal conservatives say that we can't afford it. I say, if Canada and others can afford it, so can we. Of course, Canada has the good sense not to fight two wars simultaneously. Think what we could be accomplishing if we hadn't started them in the first place, and also if we maybe closed a few of the bases around the world that probably aren't necessary anyway (in Italy and Japan, for example). Just a thought...
