    RNC insurance plan covers abortion



    The Republican National Committee’s health insurance plan covers elective abortion – a procedure the party’s own platform calls “a fundamental assault on innocent human life.”

    Federal Election Commission Records show the RNC purchases its insurance from Cigna. Two sales agents for the company said that the RNC’s policy covers elective abortion.

    Informed of the coverage, RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told POLITICO that the policy pre-dates the tenure of current RNC Chairman Michael Steele.

    “The current policy has been in effect since 1991, and we are taking steps to address the issue,” Gitcho said.

    Fools did not even know they had abortion coverage for 18 years or so.

    Well then it's a pretty good thing the RNC is trying to let me control my healthcare and not have the government control it.

    I would gather that almost every comprehensive insurance plan covers abortion. The procedure is only a couple hundred bucks and a hell of a lot cheaper than birth. People who want govt insurance have to pay. Its the law. What's the big deal?

    I don't trust either party to reform healthcare.

    I expect that whatever reform we get will cover abortion AND make sure that each and every taxpayer is royally screwed.

    They would have to repeal the Hyde Amendment. I don't know what's involved with that.

    Amen to that! Why would anybody trust the bungling clowns that caused the vast majority of the health care system problems we have today to fix those same problems? after all it's thanks to government that health care has become so expensive in the first place.

    A Republican health care bill would include:

    A tax credit whenever someone buys a private policy.

    A health care savings plan.

    A cap on medical malpractice lawsuits.

    The end.

    Pre-existing conditions would be covered. No one could be dropped if they got sick. No lifetime caps.

    Good enough for me.
