The new law in CA

Lacking a public option, the major check on insurance company price increases and abuses in the new health reform law is managed competition and regulation. That check is already being put to the test by the insurance companies.

The sec. 2708 is amended to exclude the regulation that prohibits insurance companies from issuing an individual health insurance to an individual, whom has a pre-existing condition, on the waiting period for over 90 days (and the possibility of there being no backup restraint in any law anywhere?).

What Obama’s offering us isn’t health care reform, but it’s better than doing nothing. Pass the damned bill, already.

What does a Republican takeover of health care in America look like?
* Over 13 Million Americans being discriminated against by insurance companies because of pre-existing conditions.
* Over 40 Million Americans living without health insurance of any kind.
* 40,000 American citizens dying every year due to a lack of health insurance.

It is high time that President Obama get mad as hell and not take what his Democratic colleagues in the Senate are dishing out at him. He has to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. After all, change that he wants with health care reform is the grease underneath his fingernails.

Did you think that discrimination on pre-existing conditions is banned in this bill? Think again, it appears that wellness provisions in the bill enable a backdoor to price discrimination based on pre-existing conditions. Details in the complete entry.

The battle to ensure real health care reform has now begun though it is in the home stretch. The lines are clearly drawn: corporate America versus millions at the grassroots level. The measure of success will be in the motivation and inspiration who want to ensure that all Americans can access and afford health care in our country – - – as if it were a right, or a community service like bringing heat to warm our homes or riding the municipal bus that takes us to our jobs.

With the Senate Finance Committee passing its version of health care reform, the war between health care insurers and those they insure has now begun. But it will be the will of the people that will overcome the greed of the insurance industry that will prevail; otherwise, we will all be “raped” by the health insurance industry before year’s end.
