GOP: Pre-Existing Condition

by

The Congressional Budget Office has concluded
that under the GOP amendment to the House health care bill, the number
of uninsured Americans would increase, as would premiums. In fact, if
taxpayers weren't paying the bill, GOP leaders would probably not be
able to afford insurance under their own proposal.

"The six men and one woman in the Republican House leadership have an average age of 52, and as a group are more susceptible to
cardiovascular disease, different cancers, high blood pressure, and
host of other chronic diseases. The Republican health alternative would
allow insurers to discriminate against these conditions and price the
Republican leaders out of the market."
