I can't decide which makes me happier, the changes to our broken health care system which will provide Eliza with health insurance no matter her endless list of "pre-existing conditions" and general uninsurability, or the prospect of Rush Limbaugh carrying out his "threat" to move to Costa Rica should Health Care Reform pass.
Here are some of my favorite highlights of the new bill, my particular favorites are in bold:
Ends rescission of coverage when you fall ill
No discrimination against children with pre-existing conditions
Bans lifetime limits on coverage
Bans restrictive annual limits on coverage
Small business tax credits
Begins to close the Medicare Part D "donut hole"
Free preventive care under Medicare
Help for early retirees
