Is Health Care the First Big Test?

I think it is.

Andrew Sullivan wrote something that I think rings true in this, er...every case.

"...disaster is necessary for this country to do anything that might actually work."

So, we get all these weakened policy overhauls that amount to minimal change -- seemingly because modern politics stymie progress. Until healthcare or the economy implodes rather than suffering through slow motion hemorrhages Washington will put band aids on these problems as opposed to dealing with them head on.
