From an e-mail:
The email below was sent to me by a friend living in a small town in Illinois. We worked together many years ago. His company formed an ESOP and they were bought out by a large company; his share was just over 2 million. He has been "retired" for 10 years and just turned 62. He began his Social Security early.
What's happening to your health insurance as of next week. Obama promised that if we had health insurance and was happy with our existing insurance, nothing would change. I found out today how wrong that prick is. I currently pay $401 per month for an 80/20 PPO with no prescrip. coverage and a $2000 deduct.
Due to The Affordable Care Act---my old plan won't even be available. The closest plan I can get includes prescrip., maternity, and fertility, (those 3 things will be in EVERY new plan that EVERY American will get---even though I will never be pregnant and will never need fertility treatments? The new plan will be 70/30 and a slightly higher deductible. And the monthly cost-------$905.
So, I get a way worse plan, with worse coverage, and pay more than double what I paid before. Real !$^!*^! affordable!!!!
