President Obama, a winner again. Bolding mine:
In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the industry's top lobbyist said insurers will accept new regulations to dispel uncertainty over a much-publicized guarantee that children with medical problems can get coverage starting this year.
Quick resolution of the doubts was a win for Obama – and a sign that the industry has no stomach for another war of words with a president who deftly used double-digit rate hikes by the companies to revive his sweeping health care legislation from near collapse in Congress.
Now, anyone taking odds on how long it might be until the American people have a public option or single payer?
The health insurance cartel has been, very effectively, boxed. Further struggle will only hasten their demise.
