Of all the difficult yet important issues facing this country, its citizens and its leaders, none has better illustrated the dysfunction of our political system like health care reform.

So little real, honest, good-faith dialogue about how to make quality, affordable health care available to all citizens actually occurred that the destructive threats and endless attempts to kill the Affordable Care Act became even more transparently self-serving and irresponsible.

The good news is health care reform will, in less than two weeks, be a reality and millions will see its value. Which is not to say that the new law is not complicated and subject to likely tweaks. It is.

But we think once folks get the hang of it most will be very pleased. And we want to help.
