      I've been a medical claims processor and I've also fought with group and personal health insurance claims departments over covering "legitimate, covered procedures" and I know how often denial occurs.

      Not getting single payor is a compromise.
      Dealing with a patchwork of health insurance provisions and complicated contract inclusions and exclusions is a compromise.

      Getting proper health insurance claim processing is "the onus" we will be suffering with the so-called HCR plan.

      Give me a break.

      The Hyde amendment is disgusting.  Women on welfare and the working poor don't need unplanned pregnancies to complicate their stressful lives.

      So this Stupak-Pitt Amendment is the final insult to getting proper HEALTH CARE for all families, and particularly women.

      Onus, shmonus.

      We need Democratic strategic brilliance to finish this already flawed HCR project with less concessions to the minority of our electorate.
