Editorial Praises Passage of Health Reform Legislation
The "sweeping" health care reform legislation passed by the House and signed into law by President Obama "promises to make America a more just and healthier society," according to a Merced Sun-Star editorial. It adds, "Its significance is on par with Social Security and The Civil Rights Act." The editorial urges the Senate to "quickly pass the companion 'fix-it' bill before the special interest and protectors of the status quo try to muck up the deal."
