    It's funny that this is getting so much coverage tonight. Just last night the bartender at the restaurant I went to told me that him and his wife are being denied insurance coverage because she is three months pregnant. It will cost them $10,000 for baby delivery and the other associated costs.

    In fact, current law (before the passing and enforcement of the new healthcare bill) allows insurance companies to drop women who have already had a baby because childbirth is considered a pre-existing condition. I am amazed that the women in this country, even the women I know are not angry about this or even know about this.
