Time will tell....but it is being implemented some each month........little by little.......

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

Ziggy, makes a good point. I know a number of people who are staying on the job until they reach 65 because they need the medical insurance. If they could be guaranteed insurance with none of the pre-existing condition stuff, they would be gone in a New York Minute.

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.

The CBO estimate is not 800K job losses, it is 800K people leaving the labor force because they are only working to help pay for health care and would be covered by increased Medicaid coverage. From the CBO:
The expansion of Medicaid and the availability of subsidies through the exchanges will effectively increase beneficiariesí financial resources. Those additional resources will encourage some people to work fewer hours or to withdraw from the labor market. See "The Budget and Economic Outlook: an Update here
It is being implemented little by little, but the state exchanges and individual mandate are key components and become effective 01/2014. More than two years is enough time for major constituencies to propose improvements to the AHCA that address shortcomings. Whether they choose to do so is unclear, but this seems to be moving away from a binary "pro v con" view to a more pragmatic attitude of implementation.
