As Usual, Common Sense Fails To Prevail ::: House Democrats considering insurance tax

Moronic Senate exchange:

Republicans sought to strip out a requirement for policies to provide specified benefits such as preventive and surgical care and mental health services in policies sold to consumers who receive federal subsidies to make the cost more affordable.

"This will substantially increase the cost (of insurance) when combined with other features" of the legislation, said Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz..

Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., told Kyl that about 60 percent of insurance companies selling to individuals do not cover maternity care."

"I don't need maternity care, so including it in my insurance policy gives me something I don't need and costs me more," Kyl said.

"But your mom probably did," Stabenow responded.

"But I don't," said Kyl.

Kyl's proposal failed on a vote of 14-9. All 13 of the committee's Democrats and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, opposed it and nine Republicans were in favor.
