There is no end to the conditions that insurance companies can opt out of covering, according the health care bill passed by House Republicans yesterday. That is just some of them; the actual list goes on for pages. It appears that insurance companies are obliged to cover only those who are in perfect health, who never need to make a serious claim, because as soon as a patient needs to collect on payments made to an insurance company, he or she can be summarily kicked off of the plan. That's if the insurance company accepts them into the plan in the first place. This criminal act committed by House Republicans yesterday would kick at least 24 million people off the insurance rolls, and would strip away some $900 billion in funding for Medicaid coverage. Apparently the sick, the poor, the disabled are not deemed worthy of healthcare coverage—and all so that the wealthiest Americans can get a big fat tax break. The obscenely wealthy one-percent of Americans clearly have the House Republicans on a string, and they are pulling hard to ensure that the two-percent tax Obama levied against them to fund Obamacare, will be returned to their coffers, and everyone else be damned. This bill will likely never pass the Senate in its current form, which means there are several more steps that will have to be taken before an actual repeal of Obamacare. And all because insurance companies don't want to insure people. They merely want to line their pockets with kickbacks from the outrageous cost of health care in this country, costs that they drove through the stratospheres and on which they collect without conscience. Apart from calling our Congress people, what can we do to change this state of affairs? It's not a rhetorical question. I'm sincerely trying to figure out how we turn back this blood-red tide.
