Biden: ‘We’re going to control insurance companies’

Vice President Biden said today that that the fact that President Obama cancelled his trip to Indonesia and Australia next week is not an ominous sign for the prospects of the health care reform bill on Capitol Hill.

Biden addressed a range of topics on the issue of health care, including the criticisms that nervous lawmakers are directing at the White House over its handling of the bill; the debate in the Catholic Church over the health care bill, and what he is telling Members of Congress as they get closer to a vote.

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating,” Biden said. “You know, pre-existing, they’re going to be covered. You know we’re going to control the insurance companies.”
