Health Care Email That's Going Around Looks Like the Real Deal to Me

Ok, So in the following, I read the bill pages and commented at the beginning of the line where I thought the item was significant enough to descend into the vampire cave. Items not commented on, I considered as either redundant or as a 'who cares'. ie.. You've already killed me, so who cares if you're going to restrict my health care further. There is a link at the end where you can peruse yourself. I'd be interested in any alternate translations.

And in the interest of that, Hey, Hey HEY! Let's realize that the CURRENT Health Plan we are on states in Simple Terms what the benefits and liabilities are. For example, your health plan states that your co pay at the doctor is probably from 10 to 25 bucks. Your copay at the pharmacy is either 10 or 30 depending on whether you get the good stuff or not. You pay 200 at the ER. You have a yearly deductible of from probably 1000 to 5000, which after you've met that, 100% of your costs are covered and until then 80% are covered. SIMPLE!

This thing reads like your worst cell phone agreement plan from Transylvania. In fact, one of the IDIOT congressmen (who is/was a lawyer) said he had no intention of reading the bill because "It would take two days and require two lawyers to understand it" And You Want That In Your Life !!!!??????

Who The Fool !?
