After getting a majority to oppose the insanity, now dearest leader is whizzing off his base.

>>>HOW CAN THIS BE<<< (http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/04/06/91696/health-care-overhaul-spawns-mass.html)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the big health care overhaul into law, Americans are struggling to understand how and when the sweeping measure will affect them.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Questions reflecting confusion have flooded insurance companies, doctors' offices, human resources departments and business groups.

"They're saying, 'Where do we get the free Obama care, and how do I sign up for that?' "</span> said Carrie McLean, a licensed agent for eHealthInsurance.com. The California-based company sells coverage from 185 health insurance carriers in 50 states.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>McLean said the call center had been inundated by uninsured consumers who were hoping that the overhaul would translate into instant, affordable coverage. That widespread misconception may have originated in part from distorted rhetoric about the legislation bubbling up from the hyper-partisan debate about it in Washington and some media outlets</span>, such as when opponents denounced it as socialism.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>"We tell them it's not free, that there are going to be things in place that help people who are low-income, but that ultimately most of that is not going to be taking place until 2014,"</span> McLean said.

<span style='font-size: 23pt'>Adults with pre-existing conditions are frustrated to learn that insurers won't have to cover them until 2014</span> (though those under 18 will be protected in late September); then they become both hopeful and confused upon learning that a federal high-risk pool for them will be established in the next few months. "Health insurance is so confusing. You add this on top of it and it makes it even more confusing," McLean said. ...

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>"Why does it take so long for certain health care things to take effect?"</span> said Sandra Preston, a state employee in Paterson, N.J. ...

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>"The next question that comes out of their mouths is: 'What do I have to do right now?' They need to start talking with their accountant, depending on how they're organized, what industry they're in and whether they're offering insurance now and what kind they're offering. We're suggesting they talk to their agent or broker."</span> ...</div></div>

The Healthcare problem has been solved and it's time to move on to the next challenge facing our great country. We must use what little time we have left to solve as many as we can before the knuckle draggers push us all back into the stone age.
