From Senator Sherrod Brown, here is what the Kill the Weak Act passed by the super duper prolifiest party of Trump yesterday calls a pre-existing condition that you can be screwed out of coverage for:
From Senator Sherrod Brown (Ohio), a list of pre-existing conditions with coverage lost under #Trumpcare:
AIDS/HIV, acid reflux, acne, ADD, addiction, Alzheimer’s/dementia, anemia, aneurysm, angioplasty, anorexia, anxiety, arrhythmia, arthritis, asthma, atrial fibrillation, autism, bariatric surgery, basal cell carcinoma, ipolar disorder, blood clot, breast cancer, bulimia, bypass surgery, celiac disease, cerebral aneurysm, cerebral embolism, cerebral palsy, cerebral thrombosis, cervical cancer, colon cancer, colon polyps, congestive heart failure, COPD, Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, DMD, depression, diabetes, disabilities, Down syndrome, eating disorder, enlarged prostate, epilepsy, glaucoma, gout, heart disease, heart murmur, heartburn, hemophilia, hepatitis C, herpes, high cholesterol, hypertension, hysterectomy, kidney disease, kidney stones, kidney transplant, leukemia, lung cancer, lupus, lymphoma, mental health issues, migraines, MS, muscular dystrophy, narcolepsy, nasal polyps, obesity, OCD, organ transplant, osteoporosis, pacemaker, panic disorder, paralysis, paraplegia, Parkinson’s disease, pregnancy, restless leg syndrome, schizophrenia, seasonal affective disorder, seizures, sickle cell disease, skin cancer, sleep apnea, sleep disorders, stent, stroke, thyroid issues, tooth disease, tuberculosis, ulcers.
Oh, and sexual assault. And domestic violence. Basically women are pre-existing conditions.
When the history of our time is written, this is what the “prolife” supporter of the Party of Trump will be remembered for passionately supporting. As a reader of mine said:
As an asthmatic who recently survived domestic violence, raising 2 autistic children, one with severe Crohn’s & a toddler with severe reflux, I think I need to start saving to bury my children.
It is difficult to quantify the sheer epic grandeur of the failure of the anti-abortion-but-not-prolife movement in its slavish devotion to the greedy murder cult that is Republic Rite Libertarian Christianism. And the most amazing part is how stone blind it still is to its failure in its hubris. It’s still as serenely self-righteous as the Pharisee who thanked God he was not like other men, or even as this parasitic Taker with the sick brats and little harmless wheeze. If she really cared about the Babies, she’d offer it up and not keep whining about how Good Christian Wealth needs to be redistributed to the “sick”. Doesn’t she see that’s Socialism, which Jesus came to save us from? As one of my Good Prolife Christian reader explained yesterday, Medicaid is a plot to keep “sick” people voting Democrat.
The funniest part: so many of these people seriously think they oppose Darwin when their ideology is the archetype of brutality toward the weak and exaltation of the strong. That they call it “Christian” in any way is an insult to the dictionary.
