Some key parts of the new health care law are kicking in next week. Insurers will no longer be able to cap the amount of care they will provide or deny coverage to sick children. Children will be able to stay on their parent's insurance until age 26 and we will have some more rights in appealing insurer's decisions. In response, the major health insurance companies in California and many other states have decided to stop selling policies for children rather than comply with a new federal healthcare law that bars them from rejecting children with preexisting medical conditions. Meanwhile, an Associated Press poll has discovered that the nation still doesn't really know what's in the health care law, yet believe that health care reform will cause their taxes to rise. The fact that most Americans don't have a clue about the benefits to them with Obamacare, much less even realize that many of those benefits kick in next week, is a sad commentary on the messaging incompetence of Tim Kaine's DNC and Barack Obama'a White House. There are even some blue dog Democrats campaigning on their vote against Obamacare. The White House and the Democratic party have a great story to tell of many legislative accomplishments, and if they don't start telling it, loudly and effectively, they can expect even worse electoral losses in November.
