  •  I had a similar experience with a neigbor who (9+ / 0-)

    was nice enough to come help me shovel some snow one day.

    She starting updating me on her last two years:  how she had lost her job and her family's health insurance, her self-employed husband had suffered a stroke and could no longer get private insurance, and she'd taken a job driving a bus to get some insurance and was terrified of losing it. I said, well, it will be a good thing you will soon be able to take advantage of Obamacare.

    She didn't know a think about it!  She said she was worried it was a bad thing, and she did not know ONE thing about the new provisions.  It was stunning.  If nothing else, I at least got a little information out to her, and I think she may take a closer look at it.

    The administration should send out a mailing to every single citizen in this country listing even just 10 or 20 things the Affordable Health Care Act will do for them.  I can't believe that a woman who'd been in a professional career knew absolutely nothing.  God only knows how many like her there are out there.
