The new healthcare law prevents denial of insurance to people who have pre-existing conditions. It also prevents cancellation of insurance for certain health problems and placement of limitations on lifetime insurance coverage. This is a good start, but it still does not cover all our citizens. I would support measures that would encourage competition. These would include initiation of a public option, introduction of a plan to buy in to Medicare and modification of the antitrust exemptions enjoyed by some insurance companies. This competition would lower cost.
