As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

How The New Healthcare Bill Helps Most Americans

Here is what the new healthcare bill will provide you and what the disenfranchised opposition party doesn't want millions of Americans to know.

--- Individuals that make $14,400 or less a year will be fully covered and fully paid for under medicaid and from that $14,400 up to about $80,000 the subsidy amount that helps pay for your insurance premium will be based on a sliding scale. Decent health insurance for an individual used to cost over $6000 annually but for an individual making $30,000 a year they will now pay less than $2000 of that $30,000 for health insurance.

--- A family of 4 that makes $29,000 a year or less will be fully covered and fully paid for under medicaid and from $29,000 up to $80,000 the family subsidy will also be based on a sliding scale.

Here is the subsidy calculator to see where you will stand -

This is serious and desperately needed help for millions of people all across this country and most of the family and friends I know, some of them having lived a long time with no insurance at all will now be fully covered. Low-income citizens have lived on the edge of financial ruin and bankruptcy far long enough in this country and it is no fun, been there and done that. It is also estimated that small businesses will save about 4% on their employee expenditure, stimulating employment nationally.

This law also insures that if you have a pre-existing condition you cannot be denied health insurance and it also prevents any insurance company from yanking you off their coverage should you come down with a serious illness. The insurance companies have, in many cases, been about putting money over people in some of the most scurrilous moves against their own clients but this new healthcare law will address that dark side of the insurance industry. It will finally bring some light and justice into peoples lives.
