    Why on earth should it be password protected? When the Democratic party is touting themselves as the party of open government?

    Look, my college textbooks were directed at a limited audience. That doesn't mean I should have kept them in a locked case and only let other physics majors read them.

    Trust me on this, I'm a very long way from an inside player (I'm a software engineer). Hell, I'm not even a citizen yet. But when I do become a citizen, I'm sure as hell going to be an informed one.

    Anyway, the description in the DPC document is a fair representation of the text of the bill. But what you have to understand is that anything that is touched by the Manager's Amendment has two versions in the bill, and the Manager's Amendment version always wins. So, the version of the MLR restriction which expires is replaced by the later version of the MLR restriction which does not expire. The Exchange which includes a public option is replaced by the later version of the Exchange which does not include a public option. The Manager's Amendment is Title X of the bill, and the description of it starts on page 57 of the DPC document. Everything before that point is subject to re-interpretation based on what comes after.

    In America, 60% of bankruptcies are because of medical bills, and 80% of those people had health insurance
