If BACKWARD Republicans are Successful in REMOVING the "Pre-Existing Condition" Clause from ObamaCare / ACA, we will Regress 2 SQUARE ONE ~ is Trump / Republicans attempting 2 fulfill a "Back-Room PROMISE" made 2 Insurance Companies while DEGRADING the Health of ALL Americans who need coverage for various ailments?? ~ Right NOW, the ACA LAW Requires GREED & Profit Driven insurance Companies must cover ALL Pre-Existing Conditions ~ If it's Repealed or Tampered with, INSURANCE Cos will gain a LICENSE to go back 2 the old days when they were allowed to "Premium GOUGE" or DENY Coverage ~

Lisa, last I really checked your answer scenario is happening today. I know someone -- imagine you do also. The situation is intolerable. Hopefully retaining the portability notions and strengthening them will help. Exclusions must stop!
Lisa ~ I meant 2 say "AGREED Lisa" in my last comment & it applies here 2 ~ Under ObamaCare, PROFITs 4 the Major Insurers have Dramatically INCREASED yet they still want 2 SQUEEZE even more out of "WE the PEOPLE" ~ Where's the "CAP" on COST?
This is straight from CNN so I assume it accurate on this point: American Health Care Act is a plan to drive down costs, encourage ... It protects young adults, patients with pre-existing conditions,
Lisa, it was the Obama democrats, and Obamacare that allowed insurance companies to leave states, and a lonely insurer in a state is a monopoly? The AHCA eliminates this by making insurance companies compete across state lines.
Wrong as usual Eric ~ ObamaCare PROTECTs Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions by making it UNLAWFUL 4 Ins Co's 2 Descriminate ~ "TrumpCare" Axes this LAW & Creates Wall St Friendly "POOLs" giving CEO's like SWINDLER Steve Mnuchin CONTROL
You have been informed incorrectly existing conditions are taken care of in the debated bill.the process for making law is what is occuring now MSM and D's are misleading the public. once the house passes a bill it goes to the senate for debat
The Misleading is by Trump & Paul Ryan, but are U surprised? "TrumpCare" is not an ENHANCEMENT 2 HealthCare it's a Corporate Welfare SCAM ~ 2 FACTs ~ TrumpCare Drastically CUTs Medicaid & Dramatically ENHANCEs CEO Pay ~ Americans R OUTRAGED

U can't B SERIOUS Eric ~ There's a MILLION Reasons 2 HATE Trump & "TrumpSCARE" which TERMINATEs Vital Health INS for MILLIONs of Americans while 600 BILLION in Tax Breaks go 2 Filthy Rich Americans is just the LATEST reason ~ Trumps a FRAUD
Lois ~ I'm Assuming U Support the Clause ~ The ACA / ObamaCare LAW now INCLUDEs Mandatory Coverage 4 "Pre-Existing Conditions" which BENEFITs ALL Americans including You & I ~ Millions SUFFER & anyone at any time could be AFFLICTED by a PEC
Say your child is born with diabetes. That child will never be able to get health insurance, because diabetes is a pre-existing condition. Or say you had cancer, and you change employers. No insurance for you. Screw those who need insurance most!
All of my children with pre-existing have been covered. I don't know the fine print there. My premie was covered and is years later. My elder son's tumor area was covered. But these are under non-ACA insurance. Complicated as hell.
AGEED Lisa ~ A Pre-Existing Condition is also DEFINED as Chronic Lower Back Pain, an Affliction those in Construction Suffer from, or a Bulging DISC, or Arthritis & without ObamaCare there's NO Guarantee of INS Coverage ~ Don't Believe U Eric
What? i am a cancer patient and I was 20 years ago. I am covered including real cool alternative prime medicine. No ACA. I got licensed in this crap. Made a lot of money but could not sleep. Be careful on medicare and medical.
Or let's say I hurt my back at home and couldn't work. I can't just go to work and file a comp claim cause that a PEC. But don't know all the fine print with O.C. since I don't have that for insurance
A FEW More FACTs Pertaining 2 Vital CONSUMER Protections Built into ObamaCare which will be GONE if Scam Artist Paul Ryan gets his "TrumpCare" Scheme passed ~ CEO's will have a RIGHT 2 DENY Coverage, GOUGE U or Arbitrarily Cancel your policy
AP - maybe you know more than I but I have never heard of a CEO being involved in an individual coverage issue. And here in Cal much of that is covered by state EEOC and the Unruh act. And CIC and thier CSD are hard core consumer protection folks.
FACTs ~ "TrumpSCARE" TERMINATEs "Pre-Existing Cond." & "Arbitrary Cancellation" PROTECTIONs, an INSURANCE Co. GUIDED by a CEO, can Interrupt YOUR Coverage or DENY U at will ~ How do TAX Cuts 4 CEO's who Rake in MILLIONs Help your HEALTH?
AP, do we need the tower of bable to decode your rants.
lol@brad ~ Moreover, Eric doesn't seem 2 understand the "BASIC Corporate Structure" or "ORG Chart" where typically, the over-paid CEO, is responsible 4 "Developing & Implementing" General or Specific POLICY such as Price POINTs 4 Premiums
AP maybe you missed something. When we use adjectives it is opinion. You do not get to say "FACTS" and then throw in superlative adjectives. That is just language arts -- fourth grade elementary school. "You are crazy weird" just cannot be a fact.
I was explaining FACTs pertaining 2 "Corporations" & who within said ORG decides the charge 4 Premiums & DEDUCTABLEs, & that decision is made by an over-paid CEO who's ALLEGIANCE is with "Shareholders", NOT U or I ~ ObamaCare CURBs CEO Po
You may even be somewhat right my friend. And I do mean friend because you stand up for convictions and I like that. But you have got to stop capitalization and adjective when speaking facts. Sorry I put a little too much hot salsa on my Tamale.
A Genuine Christian would do what Jesus would have done & SHARE that Tamale with a HUMAN making the Arduous Trek into the U.S. ~ YES, I'm a Man of Conviction & will FIGHT 2 STOP the Paul RYAN Health Ins Scam that GIFTs 600 Billion 2 Wall ST
AP, What crimes were you convicted for?
Anyway, the Revolutionary RESISTANCE which now includes a GROWING Number of "Trump FANz" is Outraged ~ Did AMERICANs Actually EXPECT a REAL "HealthCare" Bill that doesn't APPEAR 2 be "Drawn-Up" on a Chalk-Board at DEFUNCT "Drump University"?
AP you are really the greatest entertainment -- you rock?
Americans R ASTOUNDED & FURIOUS ~ Can U believe where Republicans R at with HealthCARE?? "TrumpSCARE" will DESTROY the LIVEs of Milions, but that's not good enough 4 the "RIGHT Wing NUTJOBs" ~ They want even MORE Changes 2 DEGRADE Your HEALTH
U should READ the "ACA" ~ Just a few more aspects of ObamaCare that MUST be Preserved ~ ObamaCare states that there R "NO LifeTime Caps" on Coverage & Insurance CO's can no longer Arbitrarily CANCEL a Policy, both R Vital CONSUMER Protections
I really truly know the guys that authored ACA. Kind of smart ass young (30s) lawyer aid types on that side of the Hill. My daughter was sweet on one so we got into the nuts and bolts of Michelats & Enchiladas, and ACA. Down near Colexico. Agreed
Eric, "Alternative FACTs" AGAIN?? EXACTLY what we Expect from a "trumpeteer" ~ In REALITY, the Designers of ObamaCare R a little MORE Mature ~ The CONservative "Repeal SCAM" will Decimate Health-CARE 4 Millions ~ The "RESISTANCE" is FURIOUS
AP you are aware that the ACA at it's core is about 1,000 pages and with the added is about 20,000 pages.
I don't CARE if it's 1 TRILLION Pages ~ Your "Halucination PRONE" Pseudo-President Trump said a "WONDERFUL" New Health Care Bill was DRAFTED by Wall Street Controlled Republican CON-Men ~ It gives CEO's a License 2 "GOUGE" Older AMERICANs
AP, I did read the ACAPPA and that is why I say it is too complex and it dn stand alone, it keeps reference old laws. My point is that the congressmen that passed the bill didn't read it. Your caps writing dn help your comment, nor your name calling
Well brad, wherever U live, Corrupt Puppet Trump & his Accomplice WALL St CONTROLLED Paul Ryan R certainly trying 2 REMOVE the "Complexities" of HealthCare, along with REMOVING Pre-Existing COND, the ESSENTIAL Mandate & INS from 15 MILLION
AP this is what CNN said "American Health Care Act is a plan to drive down costs, encourage ... It protects young adults, patients with pre-existing conditions," I think that covers it, don't you?
AP, The puppet master where I live is Gov Jerry Brown, and his federal accomplices, Feinstein and Pelosi. and Harris. Trump nor anyone could possibly make CA any worse than what over 30 years of democrat controlled bureaucracy.
brad, it's comments like yours that PROVE U don't live here in BEAUTIFUL, Financially SOUND CA ~ Maybe U should MOVE 2 Alabama, which is more suited 4 your Radical Putin Friendly VALUEs ~ Eric ~ DRIVE Down Cost? Where's the CAP on Premiums?
Right now, there is no cap on premiums and the cost is going up not down or even stable.
That's my POINT Eric ~ If Russian Puppet CON-Man Trump & his KOCH Brother's Puppet Paul Ryan were TRULY Interested in a GUARANTEED Mechanism 2 LOWER Cost, they'd add a "PREMIUM / Deductable CAP" instead of SCAMMING Americans with CEO Welfare
AP these are not the droids you are looking for.
EVERY Day here in the U. S. we R FORCED 2 Endure another Trump Induced NIGHTMARE & right now, I can't believe my eyes but AMERICANs R in an EPIC Battle 4 SURVIVAL with "Drump" & CONservatives who R desperately trying 2 DEGRADE Our HealthCare
AP you should definitely get combat pay!
AP, EVERY Day here in the U. S. we R FORCED 2 Endure another Obama Induced NIGHTMARE & right now, I can't believe my eyes but AMERICANs R in an EPIC Battle 4 SURVIVAL with "Obummer" & LooneyLibs who R desperately trying 2 DEGRADE Our Countr
This "TrumpS-CARE" Scam is just another "Trump University" Style "Bait & SWITCH" Swindle, only now, he's RIPPING ALL Americans Off on a NATIONWIDE Scale ~ Pretend 2 talk about "HealthCare" then PUSH a Half Trillion Dollar Tax CUT 4 Wall ST
You are so right AP we must dawn the mantle of hell for it is here now. Please work harder to save. I feel adrift
Eric, if you're NOT Filthy Rich U R "ADRIFT" ~ At least you're no longer attempting 2 DEFEND the Indefensible ~ "TrumpS-Care" leaves 24 MILLION Americans ADRIFT without Health-INS & GIFTs BILLIONs 2 Weirdo Steve Mnuchin Types ~ Trump U REDUX
