In Iowa, Obama fibs about his own health bill

In Iowa, President Obama repeated the myth that his bill forces insurers to cover children with pre-existing conditions:

Starting this year, tens of thousands of uninsured Americans with a preexisting condition and parents whose children have a preexisting condition will finally be able to purchase the coverage they need. (Applause.)

Did he read his own bill? Did he read any of the subsequent coverage? Apparently due to Democrats’ failure to read their own bill, ObamaCare does not require coverage of children with pre-existing conditions until 2014, despite their talking-points to the contrary in the run-up to its passage.

H/T Neo-neocon: Obama: Oh, what’s another lie among friends?
