Russ Feingold's ad
The Senator finally has a good ad to counter Ron Johnson's ad that Feingold didn't listen to constituents before voting on health reform. No, the Senator has been listening for years as people who have to use the health system describe a broken and unjust system and ask that government put some regulation on the insurers. I have said for years that the health insurance industry has been begging for regulation and apparently that is the message that the Senator heard. Now they got what has been coming to them for years, except they really didn't. In the end they still win. Sure they have to cover pre-existing conditions (children now, adults in 2014) but they can charge 3 times the rate of a healthy persons policy. Sure they can't drop you when ill, but they can raise your premium. No it is not perfect but we as a nation needed to do something. Ron Johnson wants to go back to the out of control system of a year ago. If the people vote him in I wish them luck in the future because I will demand that we stick with the current market based system that Mr. Johnson campaigned for.
