I count seventeen persons in the picture, fifteen criminals, one widow of a dead criminal, and one prop, to wit Macelas Owens.    The moron in chief kept repeating the health care reform was  need for the children.   Yet the only child in the picture, is the only person not guaranteed coverage by Obama Care.    Maybe if represents like Nancy Pelosi and Louise Slaughter had bothered to actually read the bill before they voted on it this mess could have been avoided.    The same if TOTUS has bothered to read the bill before he signed it, from Ricardo Alomso0-Zaldivar, AP [2]

WASHINGTON — Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.

Obama made better coverage for children a centerpiece of his health care remake, but it turns out the letter of the law provided a less-than-complete guarantee that kids with health problems would not be shut out of coverage.

Under the new law, insurance companies still would be able to refuse new coverage to children because of a pre-existing medical problem, said Karen Lightfoot, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of the main congressional panels that wrote the bill Obama signed into law Tuesday

The same morons too stupid to even stage a farking photo op, think they are smart enough to manage one sixth of our economy, from  Mary Katherine Ham, Weekly Standard [3]:

Making sure kids who have pre-existing conditions are covered? Hard to argue with that. There’s just one problem. In the writing of this bill that manipulates 1/6 of the American economy, the wise men and women of the United States Congress somehow overlooked making sure kids with pre-existing conditions were covered: [2]

No wonder the people that actually wrote the bill, made sure to exempt themsleves from the provisions of Obama Care, from Moe Lane: [4]

Also: Obama’s public statements have also conveyed the equally-false impression that the President has a clue about what’s actually in his signature legislation, but you can’t really expect the AP to write that out.  Although one gets the impression that the thought might have actually passed through the head of the writer.  Which would be an improvement, at least.

Sleep well tonight.  Your government is in charge.
