"Thanks, for the advice Jeff, there is a lot of good insight on this page. I find that I am very excited, but very nervous, especially about being blindfolded. That will be something I would have to work through."

"I'm just not seeing the benefit. 800k new insurance sign ups, and $1 trillion spent. Then people like Steve are still uninsured. So what's the point exactly? To spend a shot load of money to say, "oh we tried"?"
