Providing proof-positive that Congress didn’t read the health care bill before it passed it, it turns out that Congress accidentally stripped itself of its health insurance. Members of Congress and some of their staff are required to participate in the exchanges, but, as written, they lose their current insurance now and the exchanges won’t exist for years.
This is the first thing about the bill that I like.

UPDATE: The NYT writes:
The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?
