The health overhaul package passed by the House Sunday and sent to the Senate for final action is the most far-reaching health legislation since the creation of the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
While the underlying Senate bill will become law as soon as President Barack Obama signs it, additional changes will occur if the Senate passes the reconciliation-bill part of the package. The following is a look at the impact of the entire package, which would extend insurance coverage to 32 million additional Americans by 2019, but also have an effect on almost every citizen.

But those evil insurance companies were fighting this “reform” bill so hard. Tooth and nail!
Consumers Guide to the Traitor’s DeathCare Plan:
Make your funeral plans early.
Yep, this insurance company is evil, no surprise they are first in line to feed at the trough of socialism. Drink up boys, your days are numbered too.
The insurance companies have no beef with the plan because they get guaranteed customers and, if everyone is covered, they don't have to lay out more for the uninsured. Furthermore, since the government will no doubt reimburse insurers at a lower rate, premiums will rise for the rest of us and to employers who offer insurance to make up the difference.
Low income and no income (through work) people continue to make out like bandits at the expense of everyone else.
Cost to small business continues to rise resulting in job loss and more people on the government subsidized plan until there are enough on it to break the insurance companies and everyone goes to single payor.
Medicare prescription benefits balloon out of control carrying on a tradition started by the last Republican administration.
Reimbursement to hospitals and providers are cut resulting in hospital closures and early physician retirements. Access suffers. Hussein lies, patients die.
I am one of the experienced physicians who will be retiring early. I was ambivalent about retirement before but no longer.
All one has to do is look at the stock numbers today to know who’s the real winner in this bill. Health care stocks and big pharma rallied today...wonder why, LOL.
When it becomes ‘law’ which is unconstitutional to force Americans to buy it, is the day I drop my health insurance.
Now if just a few million more would do that, we would get their attention, eh?
