I am thrilled about that pre-existing clause is being removed because with DH's knee that thing has been a pain for us for years. He has bad knees, he originally hurt it in high school but it is an injury that was just wanting to happen at any point in his life. I also know it was a big pain when my brother had his heart attack and they switched insurers.
The rest of it ... it has been pushed through so quickly and so many people are against it.
So far the wording is "pre-existing conditions for children" so I am curious to see how that wording is going to affect things on that issue.
Also, from what I have read adding the student loan thing was a way to push it through as well without having to worry about it being passed in it's own right. That just seems a little shady to me...
