why.

Pre-Existing Condition: America's healthcare system sucks.

STEP 1: Propose reform.
STEP 2: Water down reform bill countless times to court Republicans and conservative Democrats.
STEP 3: Pass reform bill.
STEP 4: NATIONWIDE BATSHIT PANIC OH GOD THEY'RE GOING TO KILL GRANDMA

Okay, I was going to post just that, but I have one more thought. You know how usually there's a liberal vs. conservative split in these issues (well, in America it's usually more of a moderate vs. really conservative split, but I digress)? There isn't one here. There's a "people who've experienced the US healthcare system and know it needs to be changed" vs. "people who have been lucky enough to keep their health who have now been stirred into a frenzy by other people who don't know what they're talking about" split.
