Yup. That's what this whole health care bill has been about from the very beginning. There is a group attempting to start contacting all elected congressional members to repeal this law which needs to be done for many reasons.

Symptoms since Jan 2009, Dx UC vs crohns May 2010 but probably small bowel Crohn's dz, biopsies all "normal"

Meds: Celebrex, Omeprazole, Liadla, Entocort EC 9mg/day, Vit D, Mulitvit, Omega 3's, Ambian, Neurontin

And guvment picks up 75% of their health care tab. This guy also considers the UKs National Health Service the epitome of health care. He's said it repeatedly. Not perfect but the best in the world and an example for other countries.
I've read that the French are the happiest w/their health care of any country.
