Trump Vows to Keep Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions

Barack Obama and his fellow socialists promised that their new healthcare bill would mandate that all pre-existing conditions would be covered and they are under Obamacare. However, he never promised that coverage for pre-existing conditions would be affordable and it wasn’t. Many feared that the GOP healthcare plan to replace Obamacare would stop coverage for pre-existing conditions, but over the weekend, he promised that the new plan would cover them.

President Trump said Sunday that Americans with pre-existing medical conditions will be covered under Republicans’ new ObamaCare overhaul, as House GOP leaders try to pass the measure as early as this week.

“Health care plan is on its way,” Trump tweeted. “Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions!”

Trump’s tweet came several hours after he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the measure has a clause that “guarantees” people with pre-existing conditions will be covered and that it will lower the cost of ObamaCare insurance premiums.

The question now is whether coverage for pre-existing conditions will be more affordable under the new GOP plan that they were under Obamacare. To give you an example, my wife has a minor heartbeat issue that is controlled with medication. I am a type 2 diabetic and have high blood pressure. Under Obamacare, the cheapest plan we could find was a bronze plan that cost $816 a month. That plan had a $4,000 deductible and then would only pay for 60% of covered items. Will the new GOP plan be any better?
