If You Want to Discuss the Senate Health Care Bill…
Nicole Dieker

Just to switch stuff up, I’ll start with

Things I agree with:

A) State setting minimum standard of care: I may hate what passes for minimums in Mississippi, but that’s the way our country works

B) People can save more pre-tax in health care savings account.

Things I do not like:

a) Charging people more who have had their coverage lapse. I get that this is their answer for getting healthy people to maintain coverage and stay in the system, but all this is actually doing is preventing a good number of people from EVER returning to insurance once it lapses for any reason — job moves, poverty, paperwork, laziness, whatever. That’s going to be a nightmare

b) Say it with me now: HIGH RISK POOLS DON’T WORK AND NEVER HAVE. They’re always more expensive than expected and there’s no healthy people to distribute the cost over.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
