Dems to people with pre-existing conditions: Drop Dead!

... unless you can survive until 2014 when we'll cover you.
Starting immediately, insurers would be prohibited from denying children coverage for pre-existing conditions. A complete ban on the practice would take effect in 2014, when the legislation seeks to create a network of state-based insurance exchanges, or marketplaces, where people who lack access to affordable coverage through an insurer can purchase policies.

The Republicans have publicly offered to fix pre-existing conditions immediately if the Democrats just drop the 2000+ page backroom deal monstrosity and start over. Why not take them up on that?

I'll be 63 then. A couple years after that and I'll get MediCare.

Happy Super Tuesday!
