Turns out Barack Obama is either a liar or never read the health care bill he so insisted the House pass this weekend before he opened his big yap about it in the first place.
Comes news today that his Stalinization of Health Care Act of 2010 actually doesn’t cover children with pre-existing conditions after all.
He touted yesterday in his signing ceremony:
This year, tens of thousands of uninsured Americans with preexisting conditions, the parents of children who have a preexisting condition, will finally be able to purchase the coverage they need. That happens this year.
But according to the AP:
Under the new law, insurance companies still would be able to refuse new coverage to children because of a pre-existing medical problem, said Karen Lightfoot, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of the main congressional panels that wrote the bill Obama signed into law Tuesday
Got an idea: Next time President Obama chooses to ram through a 2,700-page piece of legislation, how about reading it first!
