The House passed a watered down $102 billion jobs bill on May 28 that dropped a proposal to extend eligibility for the federal COBRA subsidy through the end of the year. The result is that only workers who lost their jobs before June 1 get the COBRA health care subsidy -- a 65 percent subsidy of health care premiums for up to 15 months. But those laid off after June 1 aren't eligible. Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA says, "Such a loss of health coverage flies in the face of the recently enacted health reform legislation that is intended to expand health coverage to tens of millions of people." Talk about bait and switch.
