Face of Republican Health Care
turns out that in eight states, (Idaho, Mississippi,
North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma,
South Dakota, Wyoming and the District of
Columbia) getting beaten up by your spouse is
considered a pre-existing condition.
Under the cold logic of the insurance industry,
it makes perfect sense: If you are in a marriage
with someone who has beaten you in the past, you're
more likely to get beaten again than the average
person and are therefore more expensive to insure.
In human terms, it's a second punishment for a
victim of domestic violence.
In 2006, Democrats tried to end the practice. An
amendment introduced by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.),
now a member of leadership, split the Health Education
Labor & Pensions Committee 10-10. The tie meant
that the measure failed.
All ten no votes were from Republicans. You
can look it up.
"Retard" is quickly becoming the lastest villain
among the P.C. set, so before it's replaced by
something completely unpronouncable with a straight
go look at some major retards here.
