I'm not certain I would celebrate so quickly. This is just a temporary setback until the next crisis happens (or is created). As Obama said, overhaul of the healthcare system will take time -- it's not going to happen overnight.

The plan will initially only insure 1/3 of the uninsured. That alone is said to be $1 Trillion. That means, by the time all of the uninsured are covered, we will have added $3 trillion to the deficit for just this alone. Soon thereafter, we will wake up in a single payer system with the government being the insurer, and we will wonder what happened to healthcare.

As with usual liberal programs, baby steps, first add in care for the elderly, then the poor, then the children, etc, pretty soon, you have everyone in one system..
