    A friend of mine from work emailed me more disturbing news (in addition to the news we recently got that because of the Affordable Care Act, our company will be dropping its employer-sponsored health insurance and we will have to purchase our own health insurance from the California exchange).

    The news is that if you have a pre-existing condition, you can no longer sign up for the Affordable Care Act's Pre-existing Condition Insurance Program (PCIP). This is because the program can't afford to sign up new people.

    So here is another example of how this Affordable Care Act is hurting regular people (my friend is HIV+). Now what is he supposed to do?????

    Here is the link to the government report and here is the bad news about the rationing going into effect:

    Due to growing concerns about the rate of PCIP spending, in
    February 2013, CCIIO suspended PCIP enrollment to ensure the appropriated
    funding would be sufficient to cover claims for current enrollees through the end
    of the program.

    Doesn't anyone on here care about this? I'm sure there are more than a few of you with pre-existing conditions who are U.S. citizens. This will affect you.
