News To Know: On The Bright Side

So I've spent a lot of time in this space talking about the host of economic troubles we're facing. While I don't want to diminish the horrible impact the economy has had on people, the optimist in me wants to point out a bright spot. With the economy in such bad shape and unemployment increasing, it looks like the calls for health care reform are growing. As people lose their jobs, and their employer-sponsored insurance, they will demand action. Companies themselves are having a tougher time affording healthcare under our current system. All the momentumthat comes with this bad economy might finally force the government to take some action and get Americans insured.
