As a result of last night's vote,
[My mashup of the Katie Abram interview - made August 2009]
Katie Abram's son's insurance will not be cancelled if he gets sicker. And if she changes policies she cannot be turned down because of her son's pre-existing condition.
I'm happy for you Katie.
Worried still about the individual mandate. Will those mothers whose children lost their health insurance because the vicious fucks in the Arizona state legislature cancelled their kids' SCHIP insurance, be forced to buy insurance? Will they get subsidies? I thought they HAD subsidies.
This vote is reported to lose Arizona some 42,000 jobs.
This is not a spending problem, it is a "no taxes ever" selfish evil immoral mindset. Republican Governor, Republican Legislature. Party line vote.
Arizona is a cheap-ass state which pays their legislators $24,000 a year. That's it. If you refuse to raise taxes ever, pay your legislators next to nothing, and basically deride any effort to pay for a decent society, you should have your Social Security check cancelled forever.
I'd be doing some major effigy burning outside the State House if I were Arizonian. The fact that the Republican legislature there found it easier to cancel medical insurance for children than to raise LIQUOR taxes? They can go to hell.
