      This flippant dismissal is a grave mistake.  Millions of people, mostly women have this condition.  The drugs she takes are common.  Light sensitivity is common.  You guys are repeating a story that helps Bachman with women voters.  Are you nuts?????

        If I'm reading your reply right, and I can't take it any other way, unless you're a troll, Them Millions Of 'Other Women' Aren't Getting A Congressional Tax Paid Health Care Plan, they're ponying up for their health care needs, and migraines are one, not able to rush over to the House Clinic to get their meds quick as slick, let alone their families for other needs!!!!!

        In case You really don't get her statement, she wants health care for the masses to stay as is or actually worse but more profitable for those giving!!!

        But then again, if you're a woman and think like that there really are other women who do as well, but certainly not millions!!

        Like other large employers, the government pays a large share of the cost of coverage. On average, the government pays 72 percent of the premiums for its workers, up to a maximum of 75 percent depending on the policy chosen. For example, the popular Blue Cross and Blue Shield standard fee-for-service family plan carries a total premium of $1,120.47 per month, of which the beneficiary pays $356.59. Washington, D.C.-based employees who prefer an HMO option might choose the Kaiser standard family plan. It carries a total premium of $629.46 per month, of which the employee pays only $157.36.
