I'm sorry to hear of the situation.
If the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not struck down by the US Supreme court, and if it is not dismantled by the parties next in power in the Congress, then seniors receiving social security and MediCare are in for a rude awakening.

Please recognize that the rating system only gives me credit for working with you when you click one of the 3 stars/faces on the right (positive rating). Also, kindly rate me based solely
on my service to you in understanding the law, and not based on whether my answer is what you were hoping to hear. I have no control over the how the law impacts your particular situation, and I trust that you can understand how it would be unfair for me to be punished by a (negative rating) ----the first 2 stars/faces----for having been honest with you about the law.
I wish you the best in 2012,
