Extra, Extra, Read All About It

A few news items for your perusal.

"Pennsylvania begins high-risk health-insurance program," by Jane M. Von Bergen, Inquirer, 6/29. First paragraph:

Uninsured people with preexisting conditions soon may be able to buy health insurance for as little as $283 a month under Pennsylvania's new high-risk insurance program.

If the thought of affordable health care alarms you, take a look at:

Obama’s good for GOP, Boehner says, Pittsburgh Tribune, 6/29

In the article, Boehner, who was the leading contender to be Speaker of the House if Republicans had had the majority back in 2008, says he would repeal the health care legislation. Other ideas? means testing for social security, and changing retirement age to 70; things he's against? financial regulation. Worth a read.

Hi everyone,

I pinged the Above Average Jane blogger to get permission to share this information with you.

If you are struggling to maintain your health needs without health insurance and if you live in Pennsylvania, you may be able to get the medicine you need for free or almost free. Visit http://www.pparx.org/en/click_pennsylvania to find out if you can get help to pay for your prescription drugs.
