The First Step is Taken: House Release its Health Care Reform Bill

I forgot to mention this earlier today, but the House has released its official health care reform bill. I’ll have more detailed thoughts tomorrow but Ezra has a pretty good breakdown of the central tenats of the bill here.

One Intial thought: Our laws are way too complicated. I understand that these are important bills that deal with important issues, but at some point all of this nuance and detail unnecessarily complicates policies. Any good policy should be able to be described in simple clear terms to a layperson. Mechanism of implementation should be detailed, the message behind what a bill seeks to accomplished should not be.
