All health care everything

Poetic imagery much? Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images, and via the New York Times

In case you were under a rock, yesterday the House of Representatives voted for THE health care reform bill. You know, the one that extends coverage to 32 million people? That eliminates restrictions on pre-existing conditions? That allows us to stay under our parents’ health care up through age 26??? Yep, that one. It’s huge.

And everyone’s been talking/writing/blogging/freaking out about the bill. To paraphrase the one and only Sean Carter, all health care everything. Everything. To help you make some sense of just what we’re dealing with, the Bus is proud to present All The News That’s Fit To Blog, our health-care coverage round-up. It’s your one-stop shop for seeing just what went down yesterday. Observe…

Ezra Klein tells you exactly how big the bill actually is.

The Washington Post made an “internet machine” that lets you calculate the bill’s effect on you.

The Boston Globe thinks this is sort of kind of maybe a big deal for President Obama.

Mom’s Rising thinks this is sort of kind of maybe a huge deal for moms and families.

Politico gives some insight on the next front: selling the package to voters.

The Los Angeles Times talks Dems damage control.

The New York Times delves into the expected legal challenges to the bill.

That didn’t take long: Florida files a legal challenge. Already.

Need more? Let us know, we’ve got it in the vaults! In the meantime, education thineself.

    I am so effing pumped over this health care bill. Let’s sign this one into law, then get cracking on knocking down those stupid/dumb/straight-out-of-the-Victorian-Era restrictions on a woman’s control over her own body. POW!!!
