  •  More hope at the state level? (0+ / 0-)

    I am hopeful that states will do something to provide more affordable healthcare. I don't think hardly anyone in federal government has any concern about healthcare except to lower liability, instead of removing or reforming the for-profit healthcare model.

    My individual health insurance premiums has increased 30% in just 3 months (they took a cue from credit card issuers and can raise your cost anytime for any reason). I have yet to be convinced that either Clinton or Obama will make a huge effort on healthcare - so I am waiting for one of them to convince me.

    Inn the meantime I intend to help elect more healthcare conscious candidates at the state level. What else can we do?

    47 million Uninsured in the U.S. Why aren't more Americans outraged?

      may come to pass you can be sure that all eyes will be watching . Nothing is going to be perfect and I'm sure that bugs will need to be ironed out .
      Here's a start - I intend to write my Congresswoman and commend her for considering the Wyden/Bennson Proposal .Maybe we should all touch base with Congress to let them know that we are not just sitting on our hands .
