    Obama doesn't make up the preexisting conditions folks, insurance companies do.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions - Summary List

    Domestic violence as pre-existing condition? 8 states still allow it | McClatchy

    Pregnant without health coverage - iVillage

    Think about the number of Americans with the following conditions alone:

    Cancer, Diabetes, Asthma, Heart Problems, Kidney Problems, Lung Problems, and the big one (no pun intended) Obesity. At this point, should be surprised that only 50% of Americans would be classified with a "preexisting condition."

    It's even worse than that. Suppose you have "family coverage" and dad get's cancer. Because junior has "acne", the entire family could be dropped.

    This is what Republicans want to go back to, so they can protect insurance companies who are only middle men whose entire income is skimming money off the insurance policies of millions of middle class Americans.

    Hilarious is many, if not most Republicans, don't even had health care.

    And the only reason why it isn't used as a pre-existing condition more often is because of a federal law.

    What numbers are people supposed to respond to? The 50 million numbers is about 19% of the US population, yet you also say that 50% of the population has a preexisting condition. It is a little confusing when the bullshit you post contradicts itself.

    I'm saying that one shouldn't be surprised if 50% of the population has a preexisting condition.

    You're talking about the lowest number possible of the study between 50 million and 129 million Americans. You seem to think it's 50 million at the most. Nothing is being contradicted here.

    If you Liberals were so worried about "pre existing conditions" like you say then why didn't you just pass a law banning that practice when you had both the House and Senate?

    Because you wanted complete control over Health Care that's why. Shit, you fuckers didn't even read the bill you passed, (excuse me, DEEMED!)
