Health Bill Signed Into Law Yesterday Is Already Not Delivering On Promises

Bill Didn’t Ban Discrimination For Pre-Existing Conditions In Children Immediately As Promised

AP: “Obama Made Better Coverage For Children A Centerpiece Of His Health Care Remake, But It Turns Out The Letter Of The Law Provided A Less-Than-Complete Guarantee That Kids With Health Problems Would Not Be Shut Out Of Coverage.” (“Gap In Health Care Law’s Protection For Children,” AP, 3/23/10)

The Promise…

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “This Year, Tens Of Thousands Of Uninsured Americans With A Preexisting Condition And Parents Whose Children Have A Preexisting Condition Will Finally Be Able To Purchase The Coverage They Need.” (President Obama, Remarks, 3/23/10)

Bill Left A “Giant Loophole” That Does Not Force Current Plans To Cover Young Adults “Today”

PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER: “The Bill Obama Signed Leaves A Giant Loophole… The Law Exempts Current Insurance Policies From Having To Include Coverage For The Young Adults.” (“For Young Adults, There’s A Hitch In Health-Care Law,” Philadelphia Inquirer, 3/24/10)

The Promise…

SEN. PATTY MURRAY (D-WA): “Starting today, insurance companies are going to be required to permit young people to stay on family policies until the age of 26, which is especially important, I must say, now that so many young people are having trouble finding that first job.” (Sen. Murray, Congressional Record, S.1856, 3/23/10)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
