My family is currently on Cal Cobra. I have a preexisting condition and cannot get a private policy on my own. Because of the skyrocketing price of health care, we are forced to pay over $1,800 a month for a family plan with HealthNet. We have no other choice. This is a ridiculous and unsustainable amount of money to have to pay. Obama’s preexisting exclusion does not take place until 2014. What am I supposed to do until then? Everyone in California, or for that matter in the United States, should be able to get affordable health care coverage.
