I'm still trying to wrap my mind around what all this means :-//.


I'm curious to read about what impact passing this HC-bill has on individuals

It is a guarantee that my mother, who was just diagnosed with cancer a week and a half ago, won't lose her insurance coverage that she has paid dearly for over the years.

FReepers at work, no doubt.

I didn't see a post for the Newsvine poll (it was probably on some other right-wing site), but here's the type of post that can produce the surprising results on Newsvine:

It will have no effect on anyone in my immediate family. There are some positive hypotheticals, though. If DS cannot find a job with health insurance when he graduates next year, he can stay on our policy. If DH loses his job after 2014, we will be able to get affordable insurance through the exchanges, even though we've got pre-existing conditions. We'd be SOL, however, if he were to lose his job before 2014.

If the provision for exchanges were up and running this year, my 62 yo brother would retire. Instead, he has to keep "working" if he doesn't want to shell out $20K/yr for health insurance. His company, he says, employs him as window dressing, using his CV to lend credibility to the top honchos' ideas, which are often opposed to his own. He's well paid but dreads going to work. He'd much rather live a more productive life in retirement. And people here talk about GOVERNMENT waste!

So some young college grad cannot get a job because my brother needs to keep working to be able to afford health insurance. Truly a messed up system. We need SINGLE PAYER!

In my case, my DH & I will be able to buy insurance through an exchange. Plus, right now, we can't be canceled from our existing policy just because my DH is sick. Just having peace of mind about that is a major relief. My younger son will be able to buy insurance through an exchange when he finally strikes out to establish his own small business. Right now, he's hanging tight with his current employer while he works his way through apprenticeship and journeyman status. Once he passes that master license exam (he's a plumber), he's going to open his own plumbing business.

Since high cholesterol is genetic in my family, I who go to the gym 4 days a week and watch what I eat, would be un-insurable if I should lose my health insurance through my job.

"FReepers at work, no doubt."


Yes, people at work on a Sunday posting on that right-wind MSNBC site.


Glad to see liberal humor is still dead.

Nah we've got a great sense of humor - at least MSNBC provides a link to Newsvine - Think Fox provides a link to the Huffington Post????

By "at work" I meant they were busily commenting on the inet about the fall of their great nation because the dems passed 1 bill; not that they were at their physical job locations.
