  •  I am uninsured also (1+ / 0-)

    and have three chronic conditions (hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea and colitis). Can't afford to go to the doctor or new supplies for my apnea device.

    I applied to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for state-funded insurance months ago, and still don't know if I'll be covered. Very convenient.

    If at some point I'm notified that I will be covered, when my unemployment benefits end (three months at most), so will the insurance.

    If I were Romney, I would not be reluctant to claim credit for this idiocy because it fits right in with typical rethug thinking.

    If I were Obama, I would not be so quick to point to this mess as the model for the ACA.
