healthcare reformGOP Congressional leaders, enboldened by their Senate win in Massachusetts, are pushing Democrats to start over on efforts to reform the healthcare system.  In an opinion piece in Politico, history Professor Bruce Schulman says House Dems should take a page from FDR history on how Social Security was created and just pass the Senate bill.
