NOTICES SENT OUT BY HEALTH INSURERS:
While Obama made it sound like the problem has been insurers not willing to write plans, in truth, many plans that did exist were required to be terminated. Looking at the fine print, maternity insurance had to be provided for everyone. The problem, it is not quite understood how a single man can get pregnant at least without directly engaging in intercourse with the government. The notice sent out in New Jersey read:
