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.

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.
