    are on Govt subsidized plans or academic ( govt subsidized) or large group plans. Usually you don't see many posts about $24,000 a year Health insurance with $13,000 deductibles. But that's what my friend is getting next month. Again people here suffer from a bad case of overconfidence just from having a bill pass without understanding the short term ramifications. Having the benefits start in 4 years while giving insurance companies open season to jam it home is far worse than what happens to the credit card reform bill.

    Most people will have gotten their re-pricings  pay private insurance  or small business insurance by Nov and the Dems will be gone with no understanding of why it happened.

    But hey, let them enjoy themselves. Many of these people here have never seen or worried about  a real bill for insurance or medical expenses so it's quite easy to to look at this "achievement" as monumental while blaming those public option people when all of the D's are tossed out of office for not not showing a united face in the great give-away to insurance companies. .

    Wait till financial reform comes around. Once people add up how much they have been helped by the D's they say "thanks but , I can't even afford a proctologist to see what kind of damage you people have done. Your outta here."
