Quote of the Day

Rush Limbaugh, outraged about the possibility that insurance companies would be required to cover mammograms and injuries resulting from domestic violence:
About the premiums going up, and my brilliant, uh, dissertation on why prices'll go up in the private sector, even if the, uh, uh, public option's not there, and even if the Medicare buy-in is not there: It's not just preconditions that are mandated to be covered in the healthcare bills in either the House or the Senate. There was, uh, a recent amendment that added, uh, mandating private insurers to provide mammogram and other women's issues coverage, including spousal abuse! Insurance for spousal abuse! And mammograms, even though the ammogram—mammogram age to be raised to the age of 50. You, you think of all the mandates that'll be added on to private insurance—and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
