What is this 4-tier nonsense? I thought Dems were against this "class" stuff.

Is Platinum for elected officials and the rich (which cover everything, including out-of-pocket expenses) and Bronze for us low-life peons (which will be nothing more than catastrophic coverage with a huge deductible and never really cover much of anything)?

What if you make less than $20K a year, and thus, cannot even afford to pay for Zerocare at all (if you must eat and have a roof over your head and gas for your car to get to work)? Can a doctor legally accept cash for service anymore, or must everyone have some kind of coverage, even if it's "obamacare"?

Many states will put you into Medicaid at a little lower annual income than that (depending on family size). But in many areas you will not be able to find a primary provider who is accepting new Medicaid patients, and the wait for specialists could be very long.
