He's trying very hard to whip up votes to wipe out healthcare coverage for pre-existing conditions. To recognize just how big an asshole he is one only has to consider the case of a baby born like Jimmy Kimmel's... with a heart defect. While it is true that even without health insurance a hospital would give such a newborn emergency care treatment to save his life, that coverage would END for that unfortunate fellow once he leaves, by force of growing up, his parents' health insurance plan. Unless he has rich parents like Jimmy Kimmel his life beyond his mid 20's is almost guaranteed to be financial hell, as would theirs if they're unfortunate enough to somehow lose their policy before he reaches that age. THIS COUNTRY SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THAT, and with Obamacare it currently is, but unfortunately ASSHOLES such as Steve Scalise are trying to make America sick again because they suck at the teats of insurance companies. Republicans are supposed to be the pro-LIFE party? That's a fucking joke. What they and their evangelical nutcase followers are is pro-BIRTH. They're only selfishly PRO-BIRTH because they think they're winning themselves some sort of divine brownie passage points into heaven by acknowledging a "soul" at conception, but they're FAR from pro-LIFE. Once somebody is born they don't give a rat's ass about whether he/she lives or dies.
