Those Pre-Existing Conditions

With all the “news” about the world and its struggle with the newest virus to invade…..I got to wondering since the GOP is still trying every way possible to kill what little remains of Obamacare….what would happen with pre-existing conditions when it is totally destroyed?

In a headspinning week with President Trump making misleading claims as the nation wrestles with the outbreak of coronavirus, he also weighed in on an issue that could upend the lives of nearly 54 million Americans.

At a recent town hall organized by Fox News, anchor Martha MacCallum asked Trump how he would protect people with pre-existing conditions, which are guaranteed under the Affordable Care Act. President Obama signed it into law in March 2010 and it’s his signature legislative achievement.

Now, it’s a case; it’s called Texas vs. — you understand — it’s Texas who is suing.  They want to terminate it.  But everybody there is also saying, and everybody — we have our great senator from Pennsylvania.  Thank you very much, Pat, for being here.  (Applause.)  And Pat Toomey.

And — but, very important — and our — by the way, our great congressmen, I have to say, they were warriors.  Right?   Real warriors, in terms of the fake impeachment.  I will tell you that.  (Applause.)

But, so Texas is trying — and it’s Texas and many states — they’re trying to terminate, but they want to put something that’s much better.  They’re terminating it to put much better.  And they’ve all pledged that preexisting conditions, 100 percent taken care of.

A rambling, bambling, answer…..so will we be protected or is it just Texas will be protected…..I am not sure anymore.

A closing thought on Medicare For All……and the economics…..

It appears that 20 top economists think it will save money……

By eliminating insurance premiums and out-of-pocket expenses, and lowering overall healthcare costs, Medicare for All will result in enormous savings for almost all households, all except the richest households who will pay more in taxes.

Rejecting “loose talk” from corporate Democrats, the media, and insurance industry that a single-payer system would be unaffordable, twenty leading U.S. economists on Tuesday released an open letter endorsing Medicare for All as the best way to reduce soaring national healthcare costs, significantly cut expenses for most U.S. households, and save countless lives.

  1. My wife has two of the pre-existing conditions listed over here. Fatty liver disease, and Type 2 Diabetes. Yet she is still expected to go into work tomorrow.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Life is hard enough… those who think they are exempt from consequences or think the strong independent person is superior will, I hope, get the 99th level in Dante’s world!
