    Anyone going to provide a Web page showing which health insurers have refused coverage to how many children between now and 2014, so we know who to boycott?

    The Law on covering children for pre existing health conditions does not force Insurance companies to sell new policies to children with preexisting health conditions. That’s a fact jack. If the federal health department tries to write regulations forcing them to do so could be challenged in court.
    Am I supposed to believe a House full of lawyers could write such a faulty bill. Over 500 Representatives and 100 Senators and thousands of their staff members didn’t catch it , I doubt it. The loophole was put there is so insurance companies could publically challenged the law. Many Democrats wanted a public option which was taken out of this bill. What better way is there to show how the private insurance companies will steep to new lows for profits. They want the public to see this up front so they can sell the public option before Obama leaves office. I predict the insurance companies who operate for profit not our health will challenge it. They just can’t help themselves. I wouldn’t expect the insurance companies or Republicans to advertise this until the day after the bill was passed. They all know the loophole is there. Funny thing President Obama started selling this write away.
    By the way the real health insurance crises part II is coming. The large part of increasing real cost of spiraling health insurance has not been even talked about. Treating 35 million uninsured illegal undocumented people living in America . They are not in the insurance pool as paying clients ! When the rates increase to the point where they are choking us to death trying to cover or legal citizens then you may decide to allow Illegal immigrants to joint the insurance pool to flatten out the rates. Are you ready !!!
