Sometimes Congress does good work...

Check this article out, it's about a new bill Congress is close to passing called GINA (Genetic Information Nondescrimination Act):

Imagine being able to take a genetic screening test without worrying that you'll be denied health insurance. Sounds nice doesn't it? This bill would give us that peace of mind. It would also allow people who haven't gotten testing to come out and get it because they won't fear living with skyrocketing insurance premiums. Well done, Congress. You put a smile on my face this morning.

Unfortunately though, I have to note that the bill does nothing to alleviate high costs of health insurance. Maybe that's "Step 2"? Or how about finding a cure for Breast Cancer. Can that be step 2? Please?
