Health Insurance in Rural America

What do you think of the various health care insurance plans being proposed by the Obama Administration and the U. S. Congress?

    Obama ignores the biggest problem in rural America - penalizing "groups of one" by not allowing group policy benefits for entreprenuers and farmers. Even the Farm Bureau health insurance is based on individual not group risk factors. Why should Federal workers and large company employees be able to get cheaper and better policies than each and every individual can purchase. The Federal law should change to "groups of one," so that states cannot restrict insurance in this way.
