Here's the video of Harry Reid explaining why "we need [insurance companies] to be forced to do mammograms" and colonoscopies:

We need them to be forced to do mammograms. That’s why you see breast cancer awareness month. You see the baseball players wearing pink shoes, and you the football players having pink, uh, uh, helmets. It’s because people dread breast cancer, and you don’t get breast cancer, you can—correct breast cancer—you detect it if you do mammograms. Colonoscopies, if you do colonoscopies, colon cancer does not come because you snip off the—things they find when they go up and—no more, and we need to have insurance companies do this…

Angle said later that: "The free market will weed out those companies that don’t offer as many choices and don’t have a cost effective system.”
