Honestly, there’s a mystery as to what the provisions would be and will they take away from my standing benefits.  And furthermore, will we be taxed?  There’s a lot of rumors that we will be taxed, and I feel that’s terribly unfair due to the fact that the big banks, insurance companies, and Wall Street were bailed out of their fiscal mess -- which they created -- and we’re paying the freight, and the government -- whether it be Congress, the Senate, the House -- I kind of feel that both parties have left us a little bit short.  And I’m worried about just where our benefits will be over the next five or 10 years.
