    plus I have a pre-existing condition, but I am not about to play Russian roulette with my finances and life to go without insurance for 6 months. Thanks for nothing, Obama!

      Even if I were to go off my insurance in attempt to get on the PCIP program, who knows what bureaucratic hurdles I'd have to face, how long it would take me to qualify in addition to the 6 months I'd been w/o insurance, and whether I'd even be saving any $ ...methinks I would still be PAYING THROUGH THE NOSE for a shitty, FOR-PROFIT product.
