AP: Citing a Fact is Not Playing Nice

Leave it to the Associated Press to demonstrate its Leftist bias and economic illiteracy in one sentence. Apparently, the insurance companies are citing the fact that if they have to cover all preexisting conditions, the price for everyone’s insurance premiums will increase. Yes, and the sky is blue.

Insurance companies aren’t playing nice any more. Their dire message that health care legislation will drive up premiums for people who already have coverage comes as a warning shot at a crucial point in the debate, and threatens President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

It is one thing to argue for Barack Obama’s healthcare plan, it is another thing entirely to ignore the laws of basic economics. Sadly, being on the Left by definition means that Utopia can always be created by wishing something to be true.:  It is too bad that those who live in a fantasy world have a monopoly on creating Federal legislation.
