This bill is far from perfect – voting for a bill that included the Stupak amendment was something that was not easy for many members of the Democratic caucus to stomach. But Ted Kennedy realized what it really meant to compromise. Passing this bill was necessary so that real progress could finally be made towards passing a bill for universal health care before the end of the year. Ted Kennedy knew that No Child Left Behind was not perfect, but he knew that something had to be done with regards to education reform and so he worked with others to craft the best bill possible under the circumstances. Michael Capuano realizes that we cannot let the opportunity to pass meaningful reform pass us by – that this could be our only moment to accomplish what so many other sessions of Congress have only dreamed of – and was willing to bite the bullet if it meant that the process would be moved along and that many millions of uninsured people would be covered soon.
