    The Gov of Massachusetts is also a Republican.

    Seriously? wow, I did not know that…. just goes to show you Republicans and Democrats are really not as far apart as the media would like us to believe!

    I think this is wonderful. Health insurance needs to be available for all. In a recent article appearing in the latest issue of eMaxhealth Health Insurance (http://www.emaxhealth.com/72/) it says clealy that the public wants the US congress also to focuse on Health Insurance and Health care costs as well.

    The Massachusetts law doesn’t go into full effect until July 1, 2007. Most people believe it will do the following: make individual health insurance coverage cheaper; make small group coverage more expensive (but it’s not clear by how much); make coverage easier to obtain for individuals who don’t have ready access to employer coverage. It has already insured many thousands of additional low income people. The “requirement” is a very modest tax penalty in the first year of the law’s operation. It won’t be until next year, when the penalty goes way up, that we will have a good idea of all of the pros and cons….

    What we need is something like food stamps for medicine. I work in city heights and watch poor people buy reams of lottery tickets and booze at the shop every morning.

    The amount of bureaucracy involved in managing the entire CA heath care industry from Sacramento would scare even the French. It would be like banning food stamps and setting up a farms run by politicians. Sounds tasty.

    That would suck if all kids had access to health care. Then when people get sick or seriously injured they’ll be able to get the critical medical attention they need, do we really need this???
    Medical insurance should only be for people who make $30,000 per year or more, it seems like this new law is tree hugger/people hugger. Let sick people suffer, they’re sick…they deserve it.
