Yeah, it definitely feels like that.

And if you do get into the club, some health insurance providers punish you for getting older. And that makes some sense until you you find out "older" means 28 years old, necessitating a near 50 percent increase in monthly payments. But we digress.

The big news in healthcare today comes from the Senate, which will add the public option to the healthcare bill. Republicans are not pleased.
