Hints at Health Care

This could be a short- or medium-term solution for folks today while more permanent plans are proposed, debated, and probably debated some more. Even an economy in crisis may not be enough to demand swift action in health care.

COBRA is not necessarily affordable for everyone, of course. There may have to an assortment of short-term strategies to help Americans get/stayed insured. I'm planning a COBRA Watch starting next week.
