Media react to health bill passage

House Votes On Health Care Reform Legislation
Some editorial writers and commentators stayed up late Sunday night to write their reflections  about the House passage of the health care legislation. Here is a sampling: 
Chicago Tribune: Victory, but at what cost? Fix it. 
Wall Street Journal: The Doctors of the House: A landmark of liberal governance whose price will be very steep.
New York Times: Health Care Reform, At last.
Los Angeles Times: A historic first step, but Congress needs to do more.
National Review: ObamaCare isn't inevitable.
Weekly Standard: One word Republican agenda: Appeal
Newt Gingrich: This will not stand
Washington Examiner: Democrats to America: Drop Dead
Ben Stein: Democrats stab constitution in the back.
