White House slaps down insurers

We all make fun of the Democrats and their "sternly worded letters, but this time it appears to have worked. After HHS Sebelius sent one to the insurance corps telling them to quit trying to weasel out of covering kids with pre-existing conditions in 2010 as the law mandates, they agreed to do it.

Of course, this is unlikely to be the last time they try to go the narrowest interpretation possible route, but it is good optics for the White House to win the first battle coming out of the gate. Actually was surprised to see the insurers challenge it in the first place. Seemed like a ridiculously bad PR move to test the law on kids' coverage. I mean how much more heartless could they look?
