Still unaccustomed to having these big spaces where I can write as much as I want to.  Here’s an excerpt from what Dan sent me about the Health Care Reform that got passed today.  I feel dejected and disappointed.

I don’t have health insurance, what does this mean for me?
By 2014, every American will be required to have some form of health insurance or will be forced to pay a fine. The first year’s fine would be $95 or 1 percent of their income, whichever is higher. By the second year, however, fines could rise to as much as $695 a year. Families and people meeting certain income requirements ($14,404 for individuals and $29,326 for a family of four) would be exempt from paying the fine. These people may also be eligible for the federally and state-funded Medicaid insurance program that covers poor and disabled Americans under the age of 65.
