The unforgiving minute

Remember the good old days when it was the U.S. House of Representatives that was the loony bin and you always knew where you stood?

News like this still leaves me feeling a little disoriented:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats opened an all-fronts charge Tuesday to pass a $1.5 trillion, 10-year health care overhaul by August, unveiling legislation that would tax the wealthy to pay for universal coverage, create a public insurance plan and require individuals to carry insurance and businesses to offer it.

The bill would also begin wide-ranging experiments to change the way doctors and hospitals are paid in an effort to slow decades of relentless cost increases.

Minute's up.
