Obama: Texas woman dropped because she failed to report her acne… (and heart condition, but let’s ignore this part)

Why am I not surprised that the examples he used to show health care were incomplete or invalid?  The person who he used to try and show how corrupt the insurance companies are, she had breast cancer and was dropped by her insurance company because of acne!  That would be a fiasco… All because she didn’t report her acne and rapid heartrate.  I’m sorry… what was that last part?  I didn’t hear it.  Rapid heart rate.  Well, its not like that could be a serious issue, right?  She had a pre-existing condition that she hid from them.

Gateway Pundit reminds us that the US has a much higher survival rate for breast cancer than other countries.  In fact, I took a look on the web.  According to a 2008 CONCORD study of 1.9 million adult cancer patients (aged between 15 and 99) from 101 cancer registries in 31 countries on 5 continents, the US is top for survival rates in all the cancer types they checked.

Barack Obama last night included the story of a Waxahachie woman’s breast cancer nightmare in his speech to Congress. Obama said the evil insurance company canceled her policy for failing to report a pre-existing condition: acne:

"…More and more Americans pay their premiums, only to discover that their insurance company has dropped their coverage when they get sick, or won’t pay the full cost of care. It happens every day…. [A] woman from Texas was about to get a double mastectomy when her insurance company canceled her policy because she forgot to declare a case of acne. By the time she had her insurance reinstated, her breast cancer more than doubled in size. That is heart-breaking, it is wrong, and no one should be treated that way in the United States of America."

But, of course, Barack Obama forgot to mention a couple of things…

Robin Beaton’s insurance company retroactively canceled her policy because she had failed to inform them of her history of acne and a rapid heartbeat.
First of all, the woman, Robin Beaton, had her insurance canceled not because of her acne condition. She also had a heart condition she knew about and hid this from her insurance company
