Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine said ``immediate deliverables'' should convince Americans that the overhaul was the right thing. Children with pre-existing conditions now can't have their coverage dumped. Seniors will get a break on prescription-drug costs. Parents will be able to keep their children on their policies up to age 26. Other expansions and protections would be phased in.
``They'll wonder, `Well gosh, is there a ``death panel''? Have we seen that?' '' Kaine said. ``No, it didn't exist. It never existed.'' The months between now and the November elections will ``expose that an awful lot of what the other side said was a phantom that never existed, and I think again that's going to work to our benefit.''
