I've decided to start reading this 1900 page bill, though I doubt I'll be finished anytime soon. I'll update you on some important things I find and some quotes from the bill.
One thing to note in the bill, Puerto Rico, Guam, other territories, etc are considered "states". Something I'm sure the Tom Tancredo, Ron Paul part of America will blow up on. More of the fact that not these guys get the government access and don't pay taxes, but that they are considered states.
TITLE I—IMMEDIATE REFORMS
22 SEC. 101. NATIONAL HIGH-RISK POOL PROGRAM.
23 (a) IN GENERAL.—The Secretary of Health and
24 Human Services (in this section referred to as the ‘‘Sec25
retary’’) shall establish a temporary national high-risk
1 pool program (in this section referred to as the ‘‘pro
2 gram’’) to provide health benefits to eligible individuals
3 during the period beginning on January 1, 2010, and, sub
4 ject to subsection (h)(3)(B), ending on the date on which
5 the Health Insurance Exchange is established.
Which means we'd have a program for people to be insured by the government without and end date. This is just the beginning of it. I suggest you read for yourself here http://docs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf
On page 17 at the moment.
