But I thought the whole idea was to provide healthcare for everyone without limits or loopholes?

So if you're one of that 25% who actually support these disaster bills masquerading as health reform, do you still, now that you know this?

Thank Baucus, btw

"A loophole in the Senate health care bill would let insurance companies place annual dollar limits on medical care for people struggling with costly illnesses such as cancer.

Adding to the confusion, the language is tucked away in a clause of the bill captioned "No lifetime or annual limits." Advocates for patients say it fails to deliver on that promise.

"The primary purpose of insurance is to protect people against catastrophic loss," said Stephen Finan, a policy expert with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. "If you put a limit on benefits, by definition it's going to affect people who are dealing with catastrophic loss.""

  • If this doesn't make the most devout supporter question our leadership, I don't know what will. I feel like this has been going on forever, yet the longer it goes on the worse it gets. Why don't they know when to stop?

  • That almost sounds like a yeah, a DEATH PANEL.

    .....We are so sorry Mrs. Middle America with 2 little kids, but you have reached the max amount we can pay with your breast cancer treatments. We know the lump you found in your other breast is early stage cancer and could be easily beaten with surgery and a few chemo treatments, but you have reached your limit...................................start making your final arrangements.....

    ....Ma'am we understand your son is special needs and requires a lot of care, but he has reached his limit.....have you thought about putting him in an institution?

    This give me chills.

  • It's not about healthcare reform. It's about killing capitalism to usher in marxism. SLOWLY so certain people don't realize it's happening.

  • Well, like my SIL likes to say, I guess it's better than a poke in the eye with a hot poker!
