Post-Healthcare Bump

March 23, 2010

In the two days since healthcare reform finally passed the U.S. Congress, I’ve written 5 posts (6 including this one), compared to 2 posts in the previous week. It’s safe to say that the return of my faith in government following the Democrats’ success – the achievement of a goal almost a century in the making, led by the first African-American president and the first female Speaker of the House – has caused a post-healthcare bump in my blogging.

According to Gallup polling, healthcare reform itself is also experiencing a post-passage bump in American public opinion: 49% of Americans polled believe it is a good thing that Congress passed healthcare reform, compared to 48% that opposed the bill earlier in March (though question they responded to was slightly different). Of course, this is a single poll but, if the trend holds, the many commenters who predicted that passing the healthcare bill was both good politics and good policy will be vindicated.
