I want this blog to be an actual forum. When I am the only one dictating the discourse then it is not achieving its ideal. I also realize that the policy debates are complex and few can claim even competency in this area. I do not claim to be an expert, but I believe I offer some level of insight. If you have a question, comment below. In time (please be patient) I will try to answer them. Some I will answer below in the comment section. Others I may turn into a post on the main page. Be aware though that I claim some knowledge in the policy and politics realm, but not in the nitty-gritty details of insurance plans, Medicaid, or Medicare (i.e. How do I get enrolled? Am I eligible?, etc). Thanks for posting. I hope I can answer some questions, and I am excited to be relieved of the sole responsibility of guiding this discussion.
