1. As bad as romney's plan is, HCR says if you have a pre-existing condition you have to wait 6 months

without insurance before they have to cover you for pre-existing conditions

I am sorry but both parties are a sorry excuse for helping the ones that need it the most

COBRA has been in effect since 1985, and essentially has not been improved on, It is extremely expensive, and many who have lost their jobs cannot afford the premiums. So based on the HCR they would have to wait 6 months if they have a pre-existing condition to get it covered.

Surprise, a lot of people who have lost their jobs by the economic implosion are older Americans, greater than 50, a lot who have pre-existing conditions.

and surprise, the HCR is essentially romney's half-assed plan he introduced when he was governor. Now he runs away from it, but that is the sad fact.
