In Praise of Discrimination

We're having the national healthcare discussion in the first place because even people who follow the rules, get insurance, participate, and pay their premiums, still get hung out to dry by recsission (retroactive drops of coverage by the insurer) and loss of employment. Unless you can fix those problems, go away.

I'm scared.

I fear that even if the Supreme Court overrules most of Obamacare (or did already, by the time you read this), Republicans will join Democrats in restoring "good" parts of the law, like the requirement that insurance companies cover kids up to age 26 and every American with a pre-existing condition.

Those parts of Obamacare are popular. People like getting what they think is free stuff. But requiring coverage to age 26 makes policies cost more.

Even Bill O'Reilly lectures me that government should ban discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions. Most Americans agree with him. Who likes...
