Obama Wins. Flawless Victory.

Actually, it's Secretary Sebelius who has convinced the insurance cartel to cut the shit.

In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the industry's top lobbyist said insurers will accept new regulations to dispel uncertainty over a much-publicized guarantee that children with medical problems can get coverage starting this year.

Quick resolution of the doubts was a win for Obama – and a sign that the industry has no stomach for another war of words with a president who deftly used double-digit rate hikes by the companies to revive his sweeping health care legislation from near collapse in Congress.

Reform has effectively put the insurance cartel in a box, and while they'll absolutely try more shenanigans, it'll be much easier now to kick their asses.
