It's all I seem to be hearing in the news lately. Is this thing really going to pass after all? One thing that caught my ear, was New York state would get 12 million towards Medicaid if it does pass. It does sound encouraging, considering it's been a full-blown pissing contest between Conservatives and Liberals (and some in between, such as Independent Joe Lieberman from Connecticut).
As of last night, I heard they need something like 216 votes for it to pass. Well, it's not perfect but nothing ever is-especially when you're dealing with bureaucacy and politics. It's a good start. My biggest concern is taking care of those who are uninsured and underinsured, the Americans who fall in that gray area. The ones whose income is too high to qualify for Medicaid or state-sponsored insurance programs. The people who can't afford the insurance offered through their jobs because the premium is too high.
