    Final health bill omits some of Obama's promises

    WASHINGTON – It was a bold response to skyrocketing health insurance premiums. President Barack Obama would give federal authorities the power to block unreasonable rate hikes.

    Yet when Democrats unveiled the final, incarnation of their health care bill this week, the proposal was nowhere to be found.

    Ditto with several Republican ideas that Obama had said he wanted to include after a televised bipartisan summit last month, including a plan by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma to send investigators disguised as patients to hospitals in search of waste, fraud and abuse.

    And those "special deals" that Obama railed against and said he wanted to eliminate? With the exception of two of the most notorious — extra Medicaid money for Nebraska and a carve-out for Florida seniors faced with losing certain extra Medicare benefits — they are all still there.

    must be nice to be a dem and be proud of this.....

    so much so, you are too afraid and ashamed to put your name on the bill you voted for

    I'm not surprised.

    Barry Boy hasn't kept any of his promises so far. Why would anyone think he would keep any dealing with this bs HC bill??

    Is anybody surprised?

    I'm just glad that premiums are going down 3000%!
