  •  HC Bill Saved my son (0+ / 0-)

    My son has health issues that would have would make him uninsurable by 17 years old due to maximum lifetime limits on all health insurance policies.  This is now illegal thanks to the new HC Law and there are countless people in this category.
    Obama had to make deals to get HC passed.  The power of  Pharma and Insurance companies would have made moving the ball forward impossible without deals.  Keep your enemies close to get a deal and keep fighting.  Social Security did not start out as good a program initially. Our President watched his mother die while fighting her insurance companies.  He is smart in knowing where and win to use his power.  It might feel good to demand what you "know " is right, but that doesn't produce a bill that can pass.
