    Health law could ban low-cost plans

    If the ban is strictly implemented, “this population would likely be left with no coverage until 2014,” employer groups wrote last week in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. “While it surely was not the intent of Congress or the administration to increase the number of uninsured, this provision will likely produce exactly this result for some of the most vulnerable of our population, e.g., lower-wage, part-time, seasonal and temporary workers who can only obtain and afford limited-benefit medical insurance coverage.”
    Ah just another reason why when government touches something it turns to ****. Im sure people that have these insurance plans are going to be soooo happy when they hear this news.

    Employers admit the plans aren’t comprehensive but say they offer them because their employees can afford them.
    Great!!! You have insurance, but what good is it if it doesn't cover anything?

    Reminds me of when I was shopping for dental insurance as mine was about to expire under COBRA.

    One plan I found advertised free X-rays, free cleaning and two free office visits per year.

    Cost: $100 a month

    Buried deep down in the fine print.....maximum yearly benefit - $1200

    Agreed. I can never understand on important bills, Congress seems to want to throw it togeather in a hurry. Seems to me it would be better think think the HCR through and double check before passing. I would bet a majority of our reps didn't read the whole thing, or even understand what is in it. Now they are finding out.

    What you mean is delay it until nothing happened at all. That was the stategy. Right?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's not a bill anymore. It's been signed into law.

    I don't think anyone with half a brain had any doubt this health care law would hurt a great deal of people immediately, and likely everyone in the long run.
