so much for:

“If you like your insurance you can keep it.”

Not in the new bill. And take a look at the estimates that the congressional budget office are estimating for premiums.

    I went through this pretty good and I didn’t find half the stuff she is talking about or you for that matter. Why don’t you copy and paste for me exactly where it says you cannot keep your insurance, ok?

    She writes:

    What the government will require you to do:
    • Sec. 202 (p. 91-92) of the bill requires you to enroll in a “qualified plan.” If you get your insurance at work, your employer will have a “grace period” to switch you to a “qualified plan,”

    Here’s the link.

    She writes “If you get your insurance at work” What part of that is confusing to you?

    And by the way, why is it such a travesty that Medicare might be reduced but H.R. 3962 will cost so much? She writes:

    Eviscerating Medicare:
    In addition to reducing future Medicare funding by an estimated $500 billion, the bill fundamentally changes how Medicare pays doctors and hospitals, permitting the government to dictate treatment decisions.

    So reducing Medicare=evil
    Setting up new plan=evil

    Where’s the logic behind that? So Medicare is good?? But expanding it is bad?? I don’t get it.

    Well I can’t cut and paste a pdf file but her analysis of the verbiage on page 91 and 92 is saying that the current policies issued by an employer are grandfathered to a point when it will have to conform to government standards. Stand alone policies have not grandfathering clause. I believe her analysis because I trust the source. I’m not going to try and re-interpret the bills language so if you don’t believe her then you need to find someone who has a different opinion.

    You will notice that I did not highlight the cuts in Medicare. I believe that this has to happen but not under the auspices of moving that funding to help subsidize public health care options. And I really hate to see Republicans and conservatives use cuts as a rallying cry against this bill because they will lose credibility when they have to propose the cuts themselves.

    But it sounds like you are going to get a comprehensive plan. A little spendy but you are worth it. I’m sure you won’t mind pumping out 5k a year for full coverage right? It’s patriotic and for the good of the community.
