LIVE BLOG: Let’s Agree — Regulate the Insurers

President Obama has just given us a list of “where we agree” on insurance. His list included the notion that insurance companies can’t drop people, expanding the age limit for children remaining on parental coverage, ending lifetime coverage limits, and the prohibition on denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. The president recently chided Senator Kyl for saying that we don’t want to let Washington choose things as framing the question in a loaded way. Framing the question as Washington vs. the insurance companies, as the president just did, is at least equally loaded.
