Since this bill only passed last night, I don’t know what the response will be, but I can guess that there will be much gnashing of teeth and moaning about socialism, etc.
Just think what the bill really does:
Children can stay on their parents policy until they are 26. Insurance companies cannot kick people off their insurance for becoming ill (which they have done in the past). Children cannot be excluded for pre-existing conditions (which they were in the past). The spending cap paid by insurance companies will be removed.
Can anyone deny that these are not good things?
Good work, Ann Kirkpatrick!
I hope McCain and Kyl will one day reap what they have so selfishly sown in the defense of insurance companies ... who by the way, spent over $200,000,000 to defeat this bill. Do you think they did that to help you?
