  •  I am curious where you get your information (0+ / 0-)

    My read of the Senate Bill is that it won't save you a dime and will likely cost you more

    The next link is the most recent iteration of the Senate bill called Managers Amendment or read the entire bill here.

    .Democrates Senate Gov

    or side by side comparison to congress here

    Kaiser side by side

    or summary here

    Actually both plans would help the diarist immeasurably. For one both plans don't allow pre existing conditions. Everyone in the diarists age group pays the same.

    There's been a lot of false information put out by Republicans that simply isn't true. Most people when they take a look at the actual plans find they'd either be much better o or left the same way they are now.

    The diarist being self employed and having a serious condition would be . . . well. . . much better off.

      You don't address the issues I raised.

      •  actually that was exactly what I was addressing (0+ / 0-)

        with links to source.

        Without knowing someones income I can't give exact numbers but they are all available on the links.

        By any measure under the current senate plan the diarist would be much much better off. He currently has benefits capped at 5K!

        Sennat bill the only caps are on what patient pays, no caps on insurance comapny coverage.

        I'd strongly suggest you familiarize yourself with what is really praposed in the senat and house bills, then if you still have questions ask away.
