For insurers, eliminating millions of potential customers while keeping other aspects of the overhaul would be a "nuclear nightmare," says Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consulting firm that works with insurers. It would leave insurers without the extra revenue to cover higher costs from the law's ban on the denial of coverage to people with pre-existing conditions or charging sicker patients higher premiums. "It's the No. 1 lobby issue in the insurance industry right now," says Laszewski. (from the article)
Wow! Color me surprised. So you mean that the insurance companies don't want this bill to go away? Go figure. I suppose they were really counting (and drooling) of the millions of new policies they stand to gain.
