This entire thing is all BS. What people want has nothing to do with anything. I just found out that I am going to “get to have” birth control and maternity coverage on my new policy. Told the agent if that happens there would most certainly be a Star Shine in the East.

Just wait until people get their W-2 and find out that the cost of their insurance is going to be taxable income.

The whole notion that you can cover EVERYONE and have expanded benefits AND have costs go down is so ridiculous, it defies all logic. Of course, its not about logic or cost, but politics.

The GOP should ram this turkey down the Dems throat.
