“What’s in it for me?”

That’s the central question in an article from the Associated Press’ Carla Johnson that explores how the health care bill would affect five Americans.

The people profiled include a tenuously insured student working part-time, an uninsured consultant, a business owner, an uninsured man living in a shelter for the homeless and a Florida retiree.

As Johnson points out, how the health care bill will affect people depends a great deal on their age, income, your business and your current insurance. But this is a useful vantage point for telling the stories that really matter: how policy affects real life.
