Supposedly the new game plan is bi-partisanship to fix Obamacare. So, that will take some time. Hmm

Seems that Congress will be bypassing our dear President Russian Oligarch money-launderer from now on because he's alienated so many people. smile

Last night when I was in Portland visiting, the folks where I was staying had MSNBC on and Joy Reid was the host. I never watch MSNBC because I cut the cable cord back in June 2011.

Anywhoo...

Joy had a Congressional guest on not sure if the guest as a R or D, because I was gathering my stuff packed-up to head back to Seattle, but the guest stated that there is some House members (almost evenly split 20/22) who are meeting quietly to Repeal..erm, Replace...erm, Repair ACA smile

There are a couple of bipartisan bills in the Senate to let people of 55 buy into Medicare early. There is a bill in the House to let people of 50 do the same. It would certainly save them about 33% over buying an exchange policy and be about equivalent to a Gold-level policy.

This would also go a long way to stabilize the exchanges because all the sick people would flock to it.

The only problem I can see is if they are taking one of the wonder drugs that is very expensive. My old employer policy capped on out-of-pocket expenses at $2500. My new Medicare Plan D has no cap so I pay about $6000 a year.
