5. Ted Kennedy's wife is supporting the bill too, but unfortunately, doesn't
make it a bill to support imo.

One aspect of it, "Establish a high-risk pool that will give uninsured Americans with a pre-existing condition access to coverage."

There is nothing in the Senate bill that prevents the insurance companies to double or even triple the rate to cover this population, being given access to something you can't possibly afford is NOT REFORM.
