But here's the catch: Premiums will be a stretch for many, even after government subsidies to bring rates close to what healthier groups of people are charged.
And $5 billion that Congress allocated to the program through 2013 could run out well before that.
The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan will begin accepting applications in many states on Thursday, with coverage available as early as Aug. 1, an administration official said Tuesday. Consumers can check availability in their states on a new website, healthcare.gov, starting Thursday. The goal is for all states to be enrolling people by the end of the summer.
They cooked the books in order to under estimate the real cost of "health insurance reform".
Now, the bills will start coming due, and lies won't be able to overcome the fiscal reality.
Ultimately, there are only two real choices - - tax increases or repeal.

By the way - - This means that those who said "health care reform will cost more than you're estimating" were the ones telling the truth.
