Health Care Reform passed a few minutes ago. It looks like we will have some version of health care. This isn't all I wanted, but I'm thankful to see some movement to helping people
Most people who have relied on health insurance from their employer have no concept of how difficult it is to get insurance if you go to buy it on your own. A large part of the American public would be classifed as "uninsurable" and would have no where to turn if they lost their jobs. Most don't even know that because they've never had to buy their own insurance.
If you've ever said, or if you've ever heard anyone say, "I keep this job for the insurance," it should be a clue there's a problem. This is one step to solving the problem.
I realize some people are vehemently opposed, but I hope this plan serves a need for you and your loved ones, too.
I wrote in September of 2009 about my own reasons for wanting health care reform. It's still available if you want to read it. Just in case you're wondering, yes, I'm still paying medical bills. And I'm very thankful I am alive to do it and have a job that makes it possible for me to do it.
