129. That statement by Obama leaves me cold
Who does he think worked so hard for him to get elected? There are too many republican amendments in this bill. I heard Mike Moore say that these insurance corporates are really not mandated to insure pre-existing. They're only to be fined a Benjamin a day. If the government is going to help cover those who can't afford to get into the exchange what's to stop them from refusal? We're already covering the uninsured with higher premiums and I don't see that changing.

Had hoped the bill would get tweaked before passage but with all the arm bending that's going on that hope has left the station. Once the neocons are back it will be over. If the dems think it's been hard now just wait till next year. Medicare for all would be so much better. Thanks Tom for being straight forward with no agenda. As usual you are right although I don't see it as a win but a loss..the status quo remains. Medicare and medicaid will be next on the chopping block.
