Healthcare Reform as an ugh group project

News keeps trickling out about Mike-Pence-led meetings to resurrect the heathcare bill by offering different contradictory things to different constituencies to see if any of it sticks. (It hasn’t.)

I feel a sense of deja vu, but it’s not deja vu about the recent Paul Ryan healthcare bill. It’s more like every group project ever — where nobody really has a project in mind, but you have to turn in something because otherwise you’ll fail the semester.

Is anybody else getting that – the sense that the White House wants “a bill” so they can “pass it” by some kind of deadline, but that’s about the extent of it?
