    Obama said that all pre-existing conditions would be covered immediately under the new health care bill that was signed today. That was one of his main sales pitches for this bill.

    Surprise, surprise, this is not true, especially for the citizens that need it the most, CHILDREN. Children with pre-existing conditions will not automatically be accepted by insurance companies, and this bill doesn't change that UNTIL 2014.

    Hi Rick.

    My understanding is that the pre-existing condition section goes into effect immediately.

    Please indicate which section you're referring to so I can check. Because I don't believe your article is characterizing it correctly.

    Here's the link:

    Thanks.

    Hi jillian,

    I'll have to take the time to read that section of the bill and get back to you. Sorry I can't do it right now, because I'm at work.

    The Associated Press: Gap in health care law's protection for children


    "Full protection for children would not come until 2014, said Kate Cyrul, a spokeswoman for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, another panel that authored the legislation."

    this is just an example of how inept these people are going to be.

    sorry to burst your bubble dreams but Obama doesn't even understand or know what's in the bill he just fucking signed.

    Lame beyond belief.

    Children with pre existing are not covered until 2014 from the spokesperson of the committee that wrote the legislation

    Thanks for responding, Rick. Will look forward to it. Would check myself but I'm at work too. And I always prefer reading an actual statute than relying on some blogger or newspaper editorial or whatever... telling me what it says.

    Actually, genius, the ARTICLE from the rightwing paper is contradictory... it says:

    you'll forgive me, braintrust, if i wouldn't trust a rightwing newspaper's DESCRIPTION of what was said or what the bill says. It helps to educate yourself by reading actual sources.

    I'm kind of funny that way. I don't even look at the headnotes of decisions when I write briefs at work because headnotes aren't always correct.

    But thanks for playing.

    Well, now that he has signed it, he can find out what's in it.

    Based upon his own propaganda, 160,000 will needlessly die because of the delay in coverage to 2014.

    Of course if the Party of No had its way, there would be no HC reform, No Social Security, no Medicaid, and no Medicare.

    And all those little blue hair women in the tea bagger movement would be out working until they are 80 years old...or die. THAT IS THE REPUBLICAN WAY!
