Very good all around.


U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon in Washington, D.C., ruled Friday that the potential downside of expanding short-term plans is “minimal” and “benefits are undeniable” for some consumers. He found that the Trump administration had the legal authority to issue rules last year making the plans more attractive to customers.

Where available, the plans now are good for up to 12 months and may be renewed for 36 months. But they don’t have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or provide basic benefits like prescription drugs.

What do you expect from a GOP judge. Why on Earth would we want to go back to JUNK policies? The GOP has a zillion years to come up with a plan and hasn't. I wonder why.
:cool:

America has had 45 presidents and America's health system is an expensive mess. About time America asked Europe for help on the matter.
