  •  This isn't just about crap plans (7+ / 0-)

    There are people who buy comprehensive coverage on the individual market who pay lower rates because they don't have preexisting conditions.

    1-2% of the population will be worst off at least short term under Obamacare.  When the exchanges are not working correctly, these individuals will receive all the attention putting Democrats in a tough position.

    Landrieu's bill will help address this issue or at least provide some political cover until the kinks get worked out in Obamacare.

      So, yes, at the outset this sounds good.

      However, I agree that those plans should have to include catastrophic coverage. Otherwise taxpayers risk having to pick up the bill anyways.
