I want to apologize for my harsh generalization in my last post - I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound like that or even say that. I just don't want to pay for insurance for people who flat out refuse to buy it for themselves. I'm not talking about people working their way to a better life and need a hand - I'm talking about people who just don't want to use their money for it (until of course, they get really sick and realize what a good idea it would have been) - like some relatives of mine who'd rather use it for car payments because their locality covers their kids for free.
Reading up on it, there is no public option in this bill it seems, just subsidy to help those in lower brackets. I think they should find a way to make insurers lower costs, not pass out money to meet the high costs.
