Via Doug Ross:
Obama repeatedly touts the importance of insurance "portability" saying that if a person loses their job or changes jobs under his plan the insurance will ever the person goes. That is certainly one form of portability but not the most important.
Making insurance portable across state lines would, without costing the taxpayer a dime, increase competition and lower costs making health care more affordable for all. What's not to love about a legislative change that provides a free market solution that would help families across the nation while keeping the taxpayer's money safe within their own pockets? Apparently, the big government nanny staters and President Obama.
American Thinker has the video of presidential waterboy David Axelrod trying to no avail to avoid answering Wolf Blitzer's questions on why Pres. Obama opposes allowing insurance companies operate across state lines. Axelrod practically pretzels himself before he blurts out the lame and blatantly false charge that the change would be "symbolic." Priceless.
