don't think for one minute that the health care bill about to become law won't have to be tweaked...more than it already has...and hopefully with better results.
From what I understand, the Insurance Companies are prepared to do as much tweeking as they can in individual states. With that disaster of a health care bill, they are free to do whatever they want to.
People like Ohio's Sharrod Brown, Vermont's Bernie Sanders and Rhode Island's Sheldon Whitehouse along with many others on the liberal side fought hard for a better bill.
The conservadems could hold out until they got whatever they wanted because they knew 60 votes were needed and not one R would vote for this bill. Some of those Rs know better, they know health care is needed, and they should hang their heads in shame. The R party was going to cut them out, and I say, they would be better off as independents.
This bill is a disaster, it leaves insurance companies in charge, mandates people buy their shoddy products and sends taxpayer dollars to back up costs for low income persons. How many people are going to be eligible for 'low income' help? Not enough I am sure.
I would like to blame Obama but he was left with such a mess in government! I just hate to see so many people drifting over to the R side because of all the propaganda that is being spewed. I was hoping if the bill could help people, it could fend off at least a little of that misinformation being peddled 24/7.
tbolt, $1900 a month? And six years ago? What would that be now I wonder...the rates have been going up every year.
Why can't we take back those tax cuts for the very wealthy and spread some health care around, eh?
