  •  I have a hard core Republican friend (4+ / 0-)

    who just lost her health insurance.

    Now she thinks Obama's health care reform is a GREAT idea, and called me asking how she could use it to get health insurance. She wants guaranteed, portable, affordable heath care with no exemptions for pre-existing conditions, and she wants it now. She checked out Cobra, but her premium went up four fold from $7,500 to $30,000 a year for she and her husband. He is unemployed, which is how they lost their coverage, and she works two days a week for a doctor, who doesn't offer health insurance to his employees.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen, but she is still a Republican.
