Obamacare becomes reality
San Mateo Daily Journal

This week, President Barack Obama’s administration formally proposed new rules requiring all insurers to cover people with preexisting conditions and set minimum health benefits for millions of others under the new U.S. health care reform law. Just two weeks after Obama’s re-election ensured the survival of the 2010 law Republicans had vowed to repeal, the proposal is the first in an expected deluge of rulemaking to implement the law in time for its Jan. 1, 2014 start date.
