Few things cause as much confusion these days as health care, the health care reform bills and the continued popularity of John Mayer.

I think a big part of that, of course, is that we can't even seem to agree on the basic goal – do we want to "bend the curve" as the big brains insist and cut costs or are we looking to hand out "free" health care cards to everyone we see?

And if you think it's just the average tea partier (or single payer) who remained confused about health care reform, you better think again. While Joe (which party?)
