Make My Day

David Axelrod on Meet the Press:

If this bill passes, this year, children with pre-existing conditions will now be covered. They'll be an end to lifetime caps and annual caps on what the insurance companies will cover. So if you get sick, you won't go broke, if you get sick they can't throw you off your insurance. The donut hole will be filled in, so senior citizens will save hundreds of dollars on their prescription drugs, the life of Medicare will be extended and on and on and on.

So, if the Republican Party wants to go out and say to that child who now has insurance or say to that small business that will get tax credits this year if he signs the bill to help their employees get -- get health care, if they want to say to them, you know what, we're actually going to take that away from you and we don't think that's such a good idea, I say let's have that fight, make my day. I'm ready to have that and every Member of Congress ought to be willing to have that debate as well.
