Chairmen Who Oversaw Healthcare Bill Express Hope That Something Good Can Be Inserted Now That It's Passed


Tri-Committee Chairmen Statement

WASHINGTON, DC — Reps. Henry A. Waxman, Sander M. Levin, and George Miller, the chairmen of the three committees with jurisdiction over health policy in the U.S. House of Representatives, issued the following statement today regarding the elimination of pre-existing condition exclusions for children, which is included in the historic health care reform law:

“Under the legislation that Congress passed and the President signed yesterday, plans that include coverage of children cannot deny coverage to a child based upon a pre-existing condition. We have been assured by the Department of Health and Human Services that any possible ambiguity in the underlying bill can be addressed by the Secretary with regulation.

“We fully expect that this legislation will prevent insurance companies from denying coverage. The concept that insurance companies would even seek to deny children coverage exemplifies why we fought for this reform effort and will continue fighting to ensure all Americans have access to high quality, affordable care.”

Is that they know that some of us have seen their open, naked betrayal and suppport of the corporate health system (care left out on purpose) for what it is.

They are attempting to pretend that they are not what they really are.

Shills for the rotten, corrupted system.

Being a progressive Democrat is like Military Intelligence.

“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one that it is right."

Dr Martin Luther King
