Did or Does Mitch McConnell have a "lifetime limit" when he got his heart bypass that was SUSBDIZED about a decade ago???? Does he have a "lifetime limit" now, since he has a HUGE "pre-existing condition"?
Did Dick Cheney have a ""lifetime limit" when he got his heart transplant???? Why was a heart tranplant WASTED to keep this OLD war monger alive????
Does Boehner, Cantor, RUBIO (who pays $30 a month for his SUBSIDIZED health care), Bachmann, TED CRUZ and the rest of the House GOP have "lifetime limits"?????
You and the other right wing seniors on your MEDICARE, who most likely, have LOTS of "pre-existing conditions" and, just by the fact that as you age, you will get SICKER and pause a HUGE risk for insurance companies....should you have a "lifetime limit"? WHY should insurance companies continue to insure your short life and pay for your coming illnesses?????
In Response to Re: Who pays for Rafael Eduardo Cruz's health Insurance?:
To afisher: You stated, "...I'm amused that free-market folks hate the fact that private healthcare companies are competing for health care policies being offered via ACA. ..." But it's a false implication by virtue of omission. Aetna is one of the most highly respected, large private insurers, and has pulled out of the Exchange market of the ACA in New York, New Jersey, etc. totalling about 10 states the last I checked. Similar phenomena are at play with BCBS, UHC, Cigna, & Humana. If it's untenable for the HOUSE to win & be solvent, experienced, reputable insurers must pull out to be replaced by newbies who will be 2nd rate at best. Odds makers in Insurance are called Actuaries, and they possess highly advanced math skills, not unlike large operators of gambling casinos.
That leaves less quality competition and more fly by night bidders in those states by the types of operators who were 'trusted' with their low bids for state Medicaid HMO's -- i.e., that have been trusted & respected by no one in the industry.
It will cost a holy fortune to have no lifetime limit as mandated, and it will be a huge lie to imply that $50 million will be brought to bear when needed; it will not, but the premiums will be high. The lifetime limit sounds bad but is a necessity, while 'No Lifetime Limit' is merely a very big lie, like keeping your own Physician or Health Plan during this Socialist revolution.
