50. Why 20 years? Why not just go back to congress and keep working until it gets done right?
Edited on Sat Nov-07-09 11:48 AM by Dr Fate
Where did the conventional wisdom that congress is only allowed to adress HC reform every 20 years come from?

And dont just tell me "thats the way it is."

Who is stopping congress from continuing to work, this year, every day, every month, until they get it right?

I'm not sure I buy this excuse anymore.

If it really is stalled for 20 years, it will be because the usual Blue Dogs want it stalled, so I see that as just more threats from the conservatives who are part of the problem.

Under your logic, it may just as well take 20 years before this bill is re-addressed, amended, improved, etc. I'm not buying that either.
