    In an unrealted story

    Neither mentioned that the Senate health reform bill, which is the basis for Democrats' last best chance at comprehensive reform, would give the insurance companies millions of new customers required by law to buy health insurance. It would also require insurers to cover everyone, regardless of age, gender or pre-existing condition.

    To help pay for the new insurance requirements the government would give to people money to buy insurance - $336 billion over the next ten years. That money, ultimately, would have to go to... drum roll... insurance companies.

    I would have said that he just misspoke but when they asked him about it later he, he didnt say that he misspoke. He tried to justify it. Said that "He was talking about the next 10 years" or something like that.

    He's not the decider - he's the snake oil salesman.
