Show me where I can buy it, please.

Eliminating junk plans and standardizing the options available is part of the reformation. More will come over time.

You can't force people to buy if they're determined not to. Their numbers are going to be significantly lower than the pre-ACA figures for un/underinsured.

You missed a post of mine Einstein. Feel free to deal w/ that...

Or even why you're building strawmen rather than deal w/ what the topic's about?

How about "You have no freaking clue what you're yammering on about".

You were just complaining that catastrophic plans were causing bankruptcies and that's why the government had to take our choices away, since the president was so ever much smarter than the people.

If you weren't, well suck it up. That's what WE all pay for to make sure there are no more junk plans floating around in the market. .
What's this WE crap? You got a mouse in your pocket? Hate to tell you darlin... but WE all aren't paying. Oh.. some of us are.. over and over and over again... and some of us WE's are tired of it. And when this house of cards (masked as a program to bring down health care costs but is nothing more than forced insurance) comes tumbling down on you... don't come back to the WE wanting more funds. WE then are going to tell you to suck it up... frankly WE don't care anymore.

In addition to being a mathematician, you also have an unmatched understanding of the English language. How else do you get to "catastrophic insurance" from a discussion about insurance that doesn't cover catastrophes...

There's a level of understanding, where you get so deep into the true meanings of words, that you actually come out the other side where they mean the opposite of what their definitions suggest...

Like I said, win an election if you think otherwise. But just so you know, most of the people who today are crying about this, were jumping through hoops during the Clinton years trying to get this to be the blueprint for universal coverage.

As has been noted over and over, seniors have no need for maternity coverage. One size fits all is rarely the good option.
