Today in karma has the much cheered and unprecedented Romneycare serving its backhand to those who worked so hard to make it possible!
Some of them found out and now wonder if indeed they were the ones they’ve been waiting for
Young people who supported Barack Obama in 2008 may come to resent how health care reform will affect them, Gibbs and others say. Recent polls show support among young voters eroding since they helped elect Obama president.
In B0botland they are trying to make sense of all this
Operatives try Newspeak
Here’s how the article could have read….
Youth may NOT pay more for health premiums
Costs expected to maybe or maybe NOT rise by 17 percent once insurance is required,
updated right now!
…but get called on it
95. Winston Smith, is that you?
Meanwhile the much touted immediate benefit – children get not refused on preexisting condition is also not applying for all children
Coverage Now for Sick Children? Check Fine Print
.Insurers agree that if they provide insurance for a child, they must cover pre-existing conditions. But, they say, the law does not require them to write insurance for the child and it does not guarantee the “availability of coverage” for all until 2014.
Oops! But not to worry! Nancy issued a clarification
The intent of Congress to end discrimination against children was crystal clear, and as the House chairs said last week, the fact that insurance companies would even try to deny children coverage exemplifies why the health reform legislation was so vital. Secretary Sebelius isn’t going to let insurance companies discriminate against children, and no one in the industry should think otherwise.
Ah, all righty then. This reminds me of Obama telling after the fact that he intended to vote yes instead of no as what he just did.
In fact, B0bots are OK with this too
Nancy Pelosi: The intent of Congress to end discrimination against children was crystal clear
but some do note15. If Pelosi is talking about intent, then it means that there is a loophole in the law
otherwise she wouldn’t be using “intent of Congress” as a defence.

Since the writing of this, AP shilling for Obama tells us the insurers lobbyist fixed it all up – Obama is THAT good
After nearly a year battling President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats over the health care overhaul, the insurance industry says it won’t block the administration’s efforts to fix a potentially embarrassing glitch in the new law.
In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the industry’s top lobbyist said Monday insurers will accept new regulations to dispel uncertainty over a much-publicized guarantee that children with medical problems can get coverage starting this year
And if the lobbyist says it, it must be so.
Still. All the awesomeness of Obama can’t riddle this one
The law does nothing to stop insurers from charging higher rates for children with pre-existing illnesses until 2014 when insurers can no longer use health status in setting premiums.
PR this, AP!
