THE TREATMENT SEPTEMBER 25, 2009

Line of the Day: Debbie Stabenow

Via Wonkroom comes this back-and-forth at the Senate Finance hearings, between Jon Kyl, the Arizona Republican, and Debbie Stabenow, the Michigan Democrat. The subject is requirements that all insurance policies cover certain benefits. 

KYL: "I don't need maternity care."

STABENOW: "I think your mom probably did."

I'm hard-pressed to think of a single exchange that better captures the sensibilities of our two political parties--or the principle of shared risk upon which universal coverage is based.
