It doesn't seem that hard for insurance companies to determine when someone has a pre-existing condition so for starters, we should be able to determine whether people have some pre-existing condition when they turn 65. But beyond that, when the person gets sick, they get sick. What's so hard to understand here?
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
