This bill is a massive giveaway to health insurance corporations that already shouldn't exist. The individual mandate isn't the best part of the Affordable Care Act to be sure (you can blame Rahm Emanuel for convincing Obama to abandon the public option, even though the Democrats had a large majority in both houses of Congress). But the second part which is "buying across state lines" is the worst section of is bill. Essentially what it does is allow you to buy health insurance from another state. So a state like Texas, has less regulations on healthcare, but a state like New York has more regulations. This law would allow you to buy the health insurance from Texas while living in New York, but comes with the risk of less regulations on prices, quality, and other things. The devil is always in the details, and I feel sorry for people who fall for the argument that if we let corporations run wild, then everyone will prosper equally. Health insurance companies profit off of making money at the expense of your welfare, and to allow them to not just continue to screw, but to allow them to royally screw their costumers is disgusting.
