Watch the health care stories: OFA.BO Share this: OFA.BO Tweet this: OFA.BO I know there will be a lot of discussion today about the politics of all this, about who won and who lost. But that discussion completely misses the point.

If you're one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance—this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. Insurance companies can no longer impose lifetime limits on the amount of care you receive. They can no longer discriminate against children with pre-existing conditions. They can no longer drop your coverage if you get sick. They can no longer jack up your premiums without reason. They are required to provide free preventive care like check-ups and mammograms. Young adults under the age of 26 are able to stay on their parent's health care plans. Seniors receive a discount on their prescription drugs. And by this August, nearly 13 million of you will receive a rebate from your insurance company because it spent too much on things like administrative costs and CEO bonuses, and not enough on your health care. All of this is happening because of the Affordable Care Act. Today, I'm as confident as ever that when we look back five years from now, or 10 years from now, or 20 years from

Colbert Declares Obamacare Dead

Stephen Colbert has declared: “Obamacare is dead!” Pillorying everyone from CNN's Jeff Toobin to Papa Bear Bill O'Reilly Colbert took on the terminal state of the health care bill … according to many in the media (except Slate's own Emily Ba. The Supreme Court has just heard opening arguments this week [[include Slate link?]] about the constitutionality of President Obama's landmark legislation, including the legality of an individual mandate, causing some pundits to make premature predictions—which Colbert of course revels in celebrating. The Supreme Court is far from making any decisions on the bill yet, and many speculate deliberation could extend until June. But don't expect the media to be patient; there will be plenty of dramatic headlines to fill the airwaves in the coming months. The best ones, of course, may come from Comedy Central.
