RUSH: There is another way, ladies and gentlemen, that the Regime is allowing — and it’s important that people understand that. The insurance companies are not acting on their own here anymore. The insurance companies are totally under the auspices now of Obamacare, and there is another way that the Regime and their buddies in the insurance industry are getting out of this demand that people with pre-existing conditions be covered.
You know what it is? In addition to you maybe having a disease or an illness that they didn’t know about which cancels your pre-existing coverage for what you had, they also in many cases are not covering the drugs necessary to treat whatever your condition is. Not even a pain pill. If you have pre-existing condition and if, because of Obamacare, you have managed to get coverage…
You know, I don’t want to beat a dead horse here, but that’s not insurance. You know, I’m a stickler for the language, which is why I oppose same-sex marriage. I very much appreciate the language. Words mean things, and “marriage” does not equal a union of two people of the same sex. It just doesn’t. Words mean things. The Regime is engaging in sort of a trick here.
They will allow you to be covered if you have a pre-existing condition, but then the medicine you need to treat it might not be covered — in which case, you’re not covered. Your doctor visit may be covered, but the actual treatment, the medicine, won’t be. But pre-existing coverage is not insurance. Insurance is something you buy, taking a risk or making a bet.
