  •  My wife's healthcare plan... (10+ / 0-)

    No longer has any annual limits, lifetime limits, and preventative care is covered 100% without copay. Many of my friends are now covered again under their parents' plans. So, with all due respect, fuck you for saying HCR is a "moral catastrope."

    •  I don't have healthcare. I can't afford it. (6+ / 0-)

      And, I'm too old to go on my parent's plan. So, bully for you being helped, but you are not everyone in the country.

      •  We can still fix it. (2+ / 0-)

        Phone bank for Grayson. He's one of the candidates Dr. Dean wants us to help. We can't let the nutjob win in Orlando. Grayson has been pushing the idea to let everybody who wants to buy into Medicare. That will not only give us a real Public Option but it will save Medicare because it will mean young, healthy people joining the Medicare pool. We need him. Go help him.

        Vote baby, vote!

      •  And neither are you... (3+ / 0-)

        Some of us were helped, some of us were not. I wonder if you had a health care plan before the new laws. But its a step in the right direction. Or would you rather see other people suffer with you? I can certainly understand the bitterness but isn't part of being progressive helping others? I always thought so...

          there will be future improvements, rather than repeal/defunding by the Republican takeover. Sorry, I was always in the more cynical "We only get one bite at this apple" camp, and not setting up a system that really ensured healthcare for all means  that by the time they get around to fixing those problems i'll probably be too old and senile to give a damn any more, assuming I haven't died from lack of insurance already.

          I'm glad you can be an optimist about it all, but I am a bit more jaded.

        Older workers need a public option or early Medicare  to stop age discrimination based on fears or increased premiums.
