Pressing Congressman Zeldin

Nice going, Bob Brody and Betty Mazur, who represented East Hampton residents as protesters at the demonstration in Riverhead  on Tuesday Jan 3rd.  Here is the full story in the East Hampton Star as reported by Chris Walsh.

Bob was rightly concerned that one can not repeal Obamacare and preserve coverage for kids until they are 26 years old under their parent’s policy, as well as the rule that forbids insurances from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions, etc.  The math just doesn’t work.  So far the insurance companies benefited from a) government subsidies for Obamacare policies, and b) government pressure on individuals and businesses to increase the pool of insurance premiums.  Imagine up to 20-30 million insurance policies disappearing with full repeal: either insurance companies will go broke, or premiums will skyrocket, or deductibles will be huge, or the lifetime caps on benefits will return…

We all should be concerned!
