You've paid those expensive healthcare premiums for years, always on time, then one day, I diagnose you with a costly condition. You're covered, or so you think. Insurance companies have investigators who find ways to invalidate your policy, and they are great at their jobs.
You see, that coverage of yours has all sorts of stipulations, all crafted just in case you become a costly nuisance. They'll scour your medical records, finding something you might not have disclosed, not intentionally, but because that's the grift of it.
You'll fight it, going through a process designed to beat you down, all the while dealing with a health problem you can't afford. Now, you've got a pre-existing condition, and you might find an insurance company willing to cover you, but it'll cost you dearly.
This is how the game works, and this is what the Republican party wants to sell you, they'll promise you all these benefits, praising the free market system and state to state competition that drives down the costs. It'll sound terrific.
Sure, you'll be mad as hell when you discover the truth, but dead people don't vote and a new voter is born every second, it's all a matter of timing. You know who won't be buying those policies? The crooks that sold you on the idea in the first place.
But of course, it's us doctors who are the problem, greedy as we are, trying to trick you into a socialized medicine scheme. Except, we'll make less money under #MedicareForAll, and yet here I am, a doctor, begging you to make me earn less.
