The article claims "new health coverage for uninsured Americans with health problems won't be cheap" - but compared to what?
The article failed to point that this was the stop gap for those with pre-existing conditions who usually would not get covered anywhere else or have to pay premiums more than three times that declared "not cheap" in the article!!!
I currently am quoted, in New York, about $1200 for coverage. And the article claims those plans are not cheap because they have "premiums averaging $300 to $600 a month in the largest states"
Isnt "cheap" a relative word? $5 health insurance could be cheap or $250, or $0 compared to what one could get it at? IS it not cheap in comparison to Canada or the UK or CURRENT PRIVATE HEALTH INSURACE or FREE health insurance?
SHAME ON THE JOURNALIST AND HIS EDITOR FOR PANDERING TO SENTIMENTS AND ARRIVING AT AN ARTICLE TITLE THAT FITS PUBLIC OPINION.
