Republicans’ Pre-Existing Condition
The Republicans are selling a health care plan with no mandate that you buy it. And they won’t turn you down if you have a pre-existing condition. So why would you pay for health care before you need it?
Here’s Dr. Krauthammer on that:
It’s not just Donald Trump who ran on retaining this new, yes, entitlement. Everyone did. But it’s very problematic. If people know that they can sign up for insurance after they get sick, the very idea of insurance is undermined. People won’t sign up when healthy and the insurance companies will go broke.
