Dramatic Alarmism

Anyone else? The vast majority of Americans would’ve gotten unremarkably similiar care to the vice-president. Read more about the ad on this Wall Street Journal blog.

Prohibits a private health insurer from selling health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.
