    As soon as health care passes, the American people will see immediate benefits. The legislation will:

    * Prohibit pre-existing condition exclusions for children in all new plans;

    * Provide immediate access to insurance for uninsured Americans who are uninsured because of a pre-existing condition through a temporary high-risk pool;

    * Prohibit dropping people from coverage when they get sick in all individual plans;

    * Lower seniors prescription drug prices by beginning to close the donut hole;

    * Offer tax credits to small businesses to purchase coverage;

    * Eliminate lifetime limits and restrictive annual limits on benefits in all plans;

    * Require plans to cover an enrollee’s dependent children until age 26;

    * Require new plans to cover preventive services and immunizations without cost-sharing;

    * Ensure consumers have access to an effective internal and external appeals process to appeal new insurance plan decisions;

    * Require premium rebates to enrollees from insurers with high administrative expenditures and require public disclosure of the percent of premiums applied to overhead costs.

    By enacting these provisions right away, and others over time, we will be able to lower costs for everyone and give all Americans and small businesses more control over their health care choices.

    How I wish Americans would debate issues on the FACTS instead of lies.

    I hope the people who have been lying about everything in this debate will recieve the credit they are due in November.

    Perhaps you could start, then we'll all see how it's done.

    And yes, the Democrats who voted 'yes' and are up for re-election in November will receive the benefits they are due.... they can get in line for unemployment benefits like the millions they helped put there.

    Those provisions in red above will cause increases in the premiums of all. The one including "children" up to the age of 26 will have little effect on cost due to the relative health of that population segment unless it also covers the expenses of child birth when these "children" have babies.

    Like almost everything presented in this, there will be aditional costs that are not being covered by the government. The added taxes, the increased federal outlays, the unfunded mandates to the states and the under-predicted increases in the premium costs are just the tip of the ice berg.

    There will very shortly be an across the board federal payroll tax to finance this and it will not be in the "lock box" dreamed of by Gore. Another slush fund for the greed of our supported thieves.

    Any state that is currently not in hock is outsourcing as much as possible to firms that specialize in very tightly defined functions. The Big 0 having examined the world from the perspective of the Chicago Mob knows that the people who do this for a living are wrong and he is right. People who must cut costs to maintain their livlihood do it one way. The Big 0 thinks they are all wrong and he is right.

    Competition has lowered costs in every instance where it is allowed to flouish. The Big 0 proposes eliminating competition and centralizing the whole mess into several government agencies comprised of people who will thrive on growing their departments with payrolls and benefits worth 150% of what would be paid in the private sector.

    How could anything go wrong with this?
