Congress Introduces H.R. 525/S. 406, Legislation that Hurts Your Healthcare

Congress has moved quickly this session to reintroduce the flawed Small Business Health Fairness Act of 2005 (H.R. 525/S. 406), legislation that creates federal Association Health Plans (AHPs) and lets insurers off the hook when it comes to protecting you and your family. We prevented this legislation from becoming law last year - now we need to stop it again.

Congress is trying to create this "new" kind of federal health insurance called Association Health Plans. But AHPs are really healthcare that hurts. AHPs mean no protection, no guarantee and no limits on price. They will be exempt from health and consumer protection laws you have in your state. We need to do something about healthcare, but AHPs will make things worse.

They May be voting on this TODAY!

Aight Flux, for some reason you're not going to let me make comments on your most recent blog-post. So instead I'm leaving this comment here...

Excellent work in being there to capture the Downing Street Memo stuff -- did you get any interviews? Vox Pox or otherwise?

Hope everything goes well at Reclaim the Commons: 2005 in Philly. I was really involved with last years protests against BIO and have something like 50 hours of footage from San Francisco's Reclaim the Commons that I've yet to edit.

Hmm... I think I might do that this summer.

Have fun and stay aware...

50 hours! that's a huge task.

I'm just starting to look at this years panel discussions.. it's a tough edit and too laborous for people to want to watch uncut but.. important stuff..
