A friend from the BBS days...

This is a current story about a friend I met in the early 1990s:
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/longterm/stories/092009dnbuspatient_townsend.2155eef.html

So, she lost her job, got cancer, and her spouse lost his job. Income is cut by 70%, and COBRA is $1200/mo.

Consider what would happen to them without this new federal program that subsidizes COBRA?

Consider what troubles they will go through if coverage lapses because of "preexisting conditions".

How could their situation be improved without violating your economic ideals (socialist vs capitalist)?

What if this were a friend of yours.
