Health Care Funding Questions

So I’m watching the Fox afternoon news (please note, Ed Factor!) and there is a Dem. congressman from New York talking about the impact of only passing a continuing resolution on the implementation of the new health care law.

The congressman said that this was a problem, but that people were happy that their kids could continue coverage, no denial for pre-existing, etc. – all those popular measures that were scheduled to go into effect early.  And that not having the omnibus spending bill, but only a CR, does jeopardize those provisions.  Yesterday on Fox, I saw a similar presentation suggesting that people could go to that ObamaCare google ad and ‘print out the list of benefits there and wave it in the face of corrupt insurers…’

BUT WAIT!!  (more after the jump)

WHAT ABOUT THE 46 GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE UNIONS THAT HAVE BEEN GRANTED WAIVERS FROM THESE PROVISIONS BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO PAY THE EMPLOYER SHARE ON THESE NEW BENEFITS???

Anybody waving a benefits list in THEIR faces?  Or will the union members just assume that it’s the evil carrier that’s responsible?

Are our Congressment doing any education on this?  Or just spouting rhetoric?  How can we make these government worker waivers better known?

(Oh, and Ed?  I only heard about these waivers on Fox – did you miss them in YOUR chosen media?)
