When repeal is a good thing

Harry Reid let the GOPers' proposed repeal of the entire health reform bill come to a floor vote and to no one's surprise it failed to pass the Senate. However, one provision of the bill, the much reviled '1099' tax reporting language "that required companies to report goods and services transactions worth $600 or more to the IRS" was repealed on a bi-partisan vote.

It was a stupid provision and widely criticized on all sides of the political spectrum. A good example of how an imperfect bill can be improved over time.
