Dems likely didn’t read the bill before passing and signing it 

As the president has yet to admit, the health care reform bill does not prevent insurance companies from excluding children with pre-existing conditions. HotAir’s Ed Morrissey points out a release from the Senate Republican Conference that showing a number of other omissions as well. Is it possible that the president hasn’t read his own bill?

Flashback to the health care summit:

President Barack Obama scolded Virgina Republican Rep. Eric Cantor for the stack of paper he brought with him to the health summit, calling it the type of political stunt that gets in the way of lawmakers having a serious conversation.

Cantor said he brought a copy of the 2,400-page Senate bill and the 11-page proposal Obama posted online earlier in the week.

Then flashback to Speaker Pelosi saying we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill:

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

Maybe the Democrats shouldn’t pass 2,400-page bills if it means they won’t read them.
