I have serious issues with your proposed Health Care Fredom bill, but one issue in particular really jumped out at me with your November 1st post entitled: “Republicans must unite around ‘health care freedom.'”
In it, you wrote that your bill would “address the concerns Americans have about pre-existing conditions by fixing the problem before it exists.” After my initial reading, I had to reread it several times as I was simply incredulous as to what you were saying.
Representative Roy, some preexisting conditions are genetic, so how could someone “fix” the problem before it existed? The same goes for conditions that may have come about through unforeseen accidents or illnesses or simply through the natural process of aging.
I am simply dumbfounded that someone in a position of authority could make such a ludicrous and out-of-touch statement with a straight face. In addition, I can’t help but feel sorry for any American who might fall for your obvious flim-flam.
As on so many issues, I look forward to your explanation.
