This week was actually big victory for progressivism. Not in health care, but in student loan reform. Finally, a wasteful and worthless corporate welfare program was eliminated. The taxpayer dollars that were being thrown away on private profits will now be redirected to help low income students attend college and pay down the debt. This is what progressive victories look like.

The good news: student loan reform will likely get added to the reconciliation bill in order to meet baseline savings requirements. The bad news? The savings requirement would have been met by the public option, which is apparently not in consideration by Democratic leadership.
