Back tracking already (or some might call it lying)

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.

Gap in health care law's protection for children.

I guess we'll all be finding out what's REALLY in the bill now that it has passed.

Good luck with that hope and change, folks!

"Teddy's Seat" is now SCOTT BROWN'S Seat (now that is HOPE)

Massachusetts, we love you for giving us hope and for sending the message to the WASHINGTON GANGSTERS that we have HAD ENOUGH of their sneaky back room deals, the Christmas Eve passing of healthcare bills that NO ONE HAS READ, the corruption, the pork, the lack of transparency, the Chicago-style thuggery, the elitist mentality that presumes THEY know what's best for everyone, the total ignoring of WE THE PEOPLE by a bunch of old bags. Retire already and do us all a favor.

The first year in office, obama should have focused on our economy and getting people back to work. Instead, he has been content to add millions to the unemployment rolls and focused instead on impoverishing Americans. Thanks a bunch, but no thanks. Americans would rather have jobs. Americans do NOT want the government involved in every aspect of our lives. Besides, my family is debt free so do you think I want the government to step in and control my finances when we're trillions in debt? These people are so out of touch with WE THE PEOPLE that all of them need to be sent packing.

For the first time in a year, I feel hope.

Scott Brown = HOPE.
