The US took a great leap forward Sunday night by passing comprehensive healthcare reform legislation in congress for the first time in a century. Today, Barack Obama signed the bill into law, which will insure 30+ million previously-uninsured Americans, discontinue the rejection of insurance applicants on the basis of preexisting illnesses, and provide tax relief to those who otherwise couldn't afford insurance, as well as (I believe) expanding Medicaid.

And to Vice President Joe Lieberman, who offhandedly commented this plan was a 'F-ing big deal', unwittingly into an open mic ... I concur with Robert Gibbs' twitter. Mr. Vice President, you are right ...

God bless our American neighbours.
