Re: Reyes Taking Heat Over Health Care Reform

I'm going to echo Jay Leno's comment, "For all those who think this is an overreach, think of this as another unncessary war!"

Except, this is really a battle to provide health insurance to all those who cannot afford it. The "unnessary war" was financed by keeping it off the books; at least in this case, the numbers have been checked for debt management. For years, we have been paying for emergency-room care by our property taxes; this makes folks buy their own coverage.
