Why to support the Senate health bill

Nate Silver over at FiveThirtyEight.com has a nice post [1]today detailing how the Senate bill would drop the cost of health care for families – even without the public option or Medicare buy-in. We are huge supporters of both those changes here but at this point I have to agree with Silver. When you look at the subsidies for families and businesses in the Senate bill combined with the expansion in Medicaid and moves toward payment reform and cost control it’s still a historic change worth strong support.
