Congressional Democrats were furious when they learned that some insurers disagreed with their interpretation of the law.
“The concept that insurance companies would even seek to deny children coverage exemplifies why we fought for this reform,” said Representative Henry A. Waxman, Democrat of California and chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee.
Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, Democrat of West Virginia and chairman of the Senate commerce committee, said: “The ink has not yet dried on the health care reform bill, and already some deplorable health insurance companies are trying to duck away from covering children with pre-existing conditions. This is outrageous.”
But, as Squeaker Of The House Nannie Pelosi told us all, "We have to pass the bill so we can see what's in it..."
Funny how those "law" thingies have to be worded just so... See, words really do mean things!
Don't ever forget, folks, these people know how to spend your money and freedom better than you...
Kathleen Sebelius warned the insurance industry Monday not to look for loopholes in health care legislation and informed it that she will be writing regulations to ensure that the industry covers children with preexisting conditions, which some insurers insist is not a requirement of the law.
"The American people debated and discussed health insurance reform for more than a year. Congress and the President have acted. Now is not the time to search for non-existent loopholes that preserve a broken system," writes Sebelius, the Health and Human Services Secretary. The letter was sent to top insurance lobbyist Karen Ignagni on Monday and provided to HuffPost by a third party.She lies...!!! The American people told the Obami and Deemocrats NOT to pass their crap-sandwich; to start over. They refused, and passed a bill that daily reveals NEW stupidity. The LAW is what it SAYS, not what She's Bilious DECIDES to make it say.
