Health Care Act

There are many things to like in the Health Care Act.
1.Strengthens Medicare by lowering drug costs for seniors and by adding preventative services.
2. Improves insurance coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.
3. Expands coverage by allowing parents to keep their cildren on their policies until age 26.
4. Gives new options to plan and pay for long term services through a voluntary insurance program.
So why are the Republicans so rabid in their opposition? Because many of them have nice coverage through their employers and begrudge it for others. And, because it mandates that everyone must have insurance. But, one of the principles of insurance is that the base must be broad for the average needed care to be supported. This is why group plans have favorable rates.
