    That's what my aunt's insurance company said. She's paying out of pocket for her treatment.

    This sounds like the status quo to me. Wasn't one of the left's big gripes about insurance companies the waiting period for pre-existing conditions??

    How is this different????

    There are going to be a lot of surprises coming out of this bill as people have time to read it.

    And you know this how? You have read the GOP plan? You have read the 1990 page House plan? You have any idea what you are talking about whatsoever?

    Didn't think so.

    From what I have been reading and hearing from the GOP Health Care - GOP Solutions for America - GOP.gov, their plan includes things like Tort reform, policy portability allowing competition across state lines, allowing small businesses to purchase insurance in a pool to allow rates similar to very large business rates, increased use of Health Savings accounts and other common sense methods to increase competition and decrease costs. Every one of those issues have been shot down by Democrats in their House and Senate bills.

    Come back and talk when you have some real information to discuss rather than just throwing out DNC talking points.

    Oh well in that case the Dem plan is good. NOT.

    Well that's probably what the six month waiting period is for.

    BTW, old people will suffer with Obamacare, because Medicare payments to doctors will be reduced, meaning less doctors treating them. AARP endorsement of Obamacare is self-serving since they sell health insurance.

    I don't like the 6 month waiting period either. One of the great groups that subsidized health insurance can help are the workers between jobs. Get laid off, make much less money through unemployment insurance until you find a new job, and have your health insurance premiums sky rocket (not really, they were the same before, you just didn't know it because the employer paid it.)

    In addition to being a group in need, it's a group with short-term need. These people would only need the insurance for a few months until they can obtain new employment with health benefits.
