Despite making concessions, insurers face renewed attacks
Health insurers are facing renewed fire from Obama and Democrats, but are still mostly on board with the president's effort to overhaul the healthcare system. During a town-hall meeting in Raleigh, NC, President Obama took aim at insurers as a way of selling his health plan. He said he wants to forbid insurers from denying coverage to people because they have a pre-existing illness, cap consumers' out-of-pocket medical costs, and provide preventive care at no additional cost.
