Vile humanoid and occasional Republican Congressman, David Dreier (R-CA), is pretty much known for once dating Bo Derek. The longtime Californian Republican and recipient of full health care benefits now believes it’s every insurer’s god given right to not deny anyone with a pre-existing conditions, including brain tumors. David Dreier, the rep who recently used his ranking position on the House Rules Committee for personal gain by extracting over $200,000 in legalized bribes and who is among the pathetic crybaby Republicans trying to repeal Obamacare, took his even higher ranking scumbaggery to a whole new level when he said he didn’t believe highly expensive health care be given to uninsured patients with pre-existing conditions.
“While I don’t think that someone who is diagnosed with a massive tumor should the next day be able to have millions and millions and millions of dollars of health care provided, I do believe there can be a structure to deal with the issue of pre-existing conditions,” Dreier said. (Huff Po)
Dreier vehemently rejects the provision in Obama’s recently upheld HCR that bars insurance companies from dropping people based upon pre-existing conditions. Instead, he thinks patients should enter a high-risk insurance pool, which provides coverage to people who were rejected by insurance companies. Wow, can you believe this guy is still single?
“My state of California has a structure in place to deal with pre-existing conditions,” he said. “It’s a pooling process which I think is one that is worthy of consideration.”
The insanely glaring problem with this type of system that’s presently espoused by 35 states is the high premiums that come with it. Luckily, Dreier is retiring from the House to inevitably spend more time killing off other people’s families. It must have just been brought to his attention that Congress doesn’t cover tumors like himself.
