OOPS is an understatement.  From The New York Times:

In an unintended consequence of the new health care law, drug companies have begun notifying children’s hospitals around the country that they no longer qualify for large discounts on drugs used to treat rare medical conditions.

I think my favorite line in the article is from a House member who worked on the bill who said, “No one intended to take away any of the drug discounts that children’s hospitals already had.”

Maybe this is why Nancy Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”  Hey Nancy, maybe you and your law writer comrades  should have thought about what you legislation would really do before you passed it!

Don’t ever forget, the politicians in Washington pretend to be smarter than you.  But they’re not.  They’re just better credentialed.
