Think you're safe because you have employer-based insurance?
Under the House bill, large employers could choose the benefit requirements from any state—including those that are allowed to lower their benchmarks under a waiver, health analysts said. By choosing a waiver state, employers looking to lower their costs could impose lifetime limits and eliminate the out-of-pocket cost cap from their plans under the GOP legislation.

"Why isn't this in the first paragraph of every news story discussing the repeal of Obamacare?" ~ +Tim O'Brien

“It’s absolutely remarkable,” says Jim Molleur, a Maine-based bankruptcy attorney with 20 years of experience. “We’re not getting people with big medical bills, chronically sick people who would hit those lifetime caps or be denied because of pre-existing conditions. They seemed to disappear almost overnight once ACA kicked in."

This is without doubt the best thing since the MIT MTG Star Wars Musical Edition! (http://web.mit.edu/mtg/www/2005/FAL/Photos.html)

The world's Greatest(!) Negotiator just got rolled. The bipartisan spending bill that just swept through Congress ignored him almost completely. Nothing for the Border Wall (though fully funding Obama's more efficient fences). No slashing of R&D or medical research. No slashing of Medicare or even the EPA or energy research. No defunding Planned Parenthood. No poison pill abortion riders. A continuation of Obama's moderate defense ramp-up. No 'fiduciary rule' retraction, allowing financial advisers to rape their customers. No clamp down on legal-marijuana states.

DT's people say it was just to clear a path for the "No-Obamacare II" push, across the next month. But that bill is looking more and more like a minor tweak, letting some red states screw their citizens while leaving the ACA standing, in Blue America. B... F.... D...
