    DaGoose.....

    I know you are smarter than that.
    Lets be real here.......2 provisions kicked in FIRST....

    Children under 26 years of age get to be on their parents plan FREE OF CHARGE
    Pre Existing conditions are no longer acceptable reasons for denial

    Gee...ya think anyone is going to say..."wow, those two provisions suck ass"

    Do you think it was an accident for those two to kick in first and the "negative" provisions slated to kick in AFTER the 2012 election?

    How about this...

    Do you like the fact that your children get to be on your policy free of charge until they are 26 years old?......

    Answer:

    Yes.

    Do you like the fact that you can not be denied insurance due to pre existing conditions?

    Answer:

    Yes

    So based on those two provisions ....sure it is preferred by all...

    But soon the questions will be...

    Do you mind that your premiums have gone up by 20%?

    Do you mind being told by the government that you MUST spend your hard earned money on purchasing something you may never actually need?

    Do you mind that the deficit is affected to thre tune of about 500 mrillion dollars even though you were promised that it was deficit neutral?

    Do you mind having to switch your doctors becuase your insurance company can no longer afford to work with your existing doctors?

    I bet the responses wont be as favorable.

    That's great ain't it. Adults a few years short of 30 can depend on mommy and daddy for health insurance. What happens when they grow up?

    the law will say they must buy something they very well may not be able to afford...nor may never need.

    My 24 year old son ius back on our policy....but in the meantime, he has never made a claim on his original policy...other than for his annuals.....but that should never be part of insurance anyway....for insurance ius INSURANCE.....for the unexpected....

    Instead, my son was paying $4000 a year to cover his $300 annual visit.

    Wait till the rest of Obamacare kicks in.

    Wait till those with insurance see what its going to cost them to cover all those without.

    Wonder if Goosey will be so high on Obamacare then.
