When has ‘grandfathering in’ ever made anyone happy?

“Under the health reform law signed in March, health insurance plans must meet a variety of new requirements. But plans that existed before the law was signed can be “grandfathered in,” without necessarily having to meet all the new requirements.”

–I get that this will make it easier for the companies, but shouldn’t they have to eventually adjust to the new requirements? I think that there should be a longterm goal in mind of having everyone follow these specifications. Without equality how can we expect anyone to change from their current plans when they aren’t bogged down with specific rules? How can this new plan be successful if not following it is the best option. I guess once everyone over thirty now who has a healthcare plan dies, everything will be in effect. So we are only looking at fifty more years on inequality? Sound fair to you?
