Pearlstein is frustrated with congress. He sees a structural problem. While I agree, I still think congress' incentives and priorities are a huge issue. Politico has a piece on how Speaker Pelosi had to round up votes for HCR. Some needed their ego stroked, some needed pork.... who just thought they should vote for the damn bill? Democracy in America has a nice post on the sudden obsession with CBO scores over the actual goals of reform.
