During the past few months, and most recently the past few days, we are constantly hearing “boy, I bet it’s crazy in your world!” I liken working in insurance to selling cars.
Let’s just say that I have a new car that is on the market, the “Obamacar.” Now, what we know about this car is that it comes in four fun colors (bronze, silver, gold, and platinum). The Obamacar can have the option of two or four doors, and you can even customize the interior (leather, vinyl, suede, or even plastic). The problem lies in what’s under the hood.
Today, we believe it has an engine, and will be running just fine shortly. However, we are not quite sure of the specifications of the engine. It might have a Ferrari engine, built to go fast, might be a little expensive, but will be worth it. Or, it might have a Yugo engine, not built to last, but less expensive, and eventually could be in the Smithsonian.
Some of the specifications are still to be determined, as well, such as: Will it have air conditioning? Does it even have a place for the air conditioning? And, most importantly, who will service the new Obamacar? There is also a lot of speculation as to what mechanics will be able to work on the car, so we’re still waiting on the preferred mechanic’s lists. And, the manual has over 2,700 pages just for starting it!
However, knowing all of the above with the Obamacar; the problem is that it’s still in the Research & Development department, and all could change before it is rolled out into production.
Notwithstanding, I’m still the Obamacar-salesperson-of-the-month (yes, the title was self-made)!
If the above has you scratching your head then you can probably see some similarities to the recent developments to Health Care Reform. Not to worry, at ACS Insurance, we’ve been watching this law for over three years and are do know the contents of its manual.
