Would you ever believe that the government is trying to take away our freedom, one step at a time? In the recent proposal for Health care Reform, on page 16, it says "Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer
offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the
first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day" of the year the
legislation becomes law.
Read that again, you might have missed it. Even the media missed it! It says 'does not', which translates into 'cannot'! You can keep what you currently have, but you will not be able to change to any other plan other than the public option. What do you think this will do to the entire industry? I'm not sure your view points, but I think this is insane. This eliminates the choices we have for our health care. On top of it, its government ran? To make it worse, the way it's written right now it won't actually control costs; it will drive it through the roof. Rationing your health is about to begin.
