The GOP was against coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Once again, Carol is lying. It's what she does, constantly.
Then she runs from her lies, telling people there's a train a'coming and other stupid crap.
Anything to avoid talking about her proven lies.
So whe waits a few days and repeats the lies.
It's the cigarettes and diabetes related dementia she's dealing with.
Carol is obviously uneducated.

Not because of negligence or incompetence. Big difference. Neither did Reagan lie about an attack killing Americans for a political advantage to win an election. Again, big difference.
Think it's the "big difference" some of you have a problem grasping.
what negligence or incompetence? how did the video lie help him get elected? in fact, it hurt him...

Republicans wanted consumers to be more aware of health care costs by paying taxes on 35% of their premiums. If above average, paying taxes on more. If below average, paying taxes on less. Employees would, therefore, go to their bosses and ask for cheaper plans.
On preexisting conditions, if you lost your job and immediately bought insurance on your own, you'd be protected. If you let your coverage lapse, you'd have to pay more because of your preexisting condition.
Sounds fair to me. Just don't let your coverage lapse. Like with anything else.
"On preexisting conditions, if you lost your job and immediately bought insurance on your own, you'd be protected. If you let your coverage lapse, you'd have to pay more because of your preexisting condition." That is EXACTLY what existed before the ACA. The Republicans just wanted the status quo!! Ever hear of COBRA? I beginning to doubt that you EVER held a job.

Pretty much what Obama is saying.
Haven't heard him mention lowering costs even once in the past six years.

Making it even more unaffordable for many so it will be cost-free for others isn't lowering costs.

And don't forget ObamaCare is a tax law. Taxpayers pay more to the government.

So if Hillary attributed the death of the four Americans to a terrorist attack instead of the result of a response to a video then Americans would be safer?? Next time you tune into FOX take better notes.

Seek help, your delusional, irrational and twisted perception serves only to remind normal people of just how out of touch and clueless you baggers really are. Do rational people in the very same breath talk about having no hate in their heart while calling another a scumbag? Only in bagger world. Too funny.
In the baggar world it is, "Do as we say, not as we do."

Try. Just try to grasp this SIMPLE fact...if you regulate the manner in which insurance companies can increase premiums, you succeed in lowering the costs to the consumer.

No. You are wrong. The GOP did not want pre-existing conditions included. They wanted the status quo. They "didn't reform anything." Under the GOP plan, those with pre-existing conditions would have had to purchase their insurance from a high risk Insurance pool just as they did before the ACA. A plan that was proven to be too expensive for most people to afford.
insurance rates should be based on risk....
