though i've been one of the lucky ones (to be able to keep working thus far, to have good benefits, to not be denied insurance due to pre-existing condition, etc), i've watched the developments carefully and am so delighted for everyone not as lucky as i have been!

rachel maddow's show last night (3/22/10) had a good run down of the changes and when they go into effect at the beginning of her show. you can download the free podcasts, or i'm assuming you can watch on-line. but as you said, the list of changes and when they go into effect are probably elsewhere on the internet as well.

i am so happy for you! and everyone else, who's lives will be positively impacted.
