GOP senators file pre-existing conditions protection bill

With President Trump recently reiterating that he would like to completely abolish the controversial Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, congressional Democrats have been pushing the political narrative that millions of Americans would lose their healthcare, and that pre-existing health conditions would not be covered under any future healthcare reform.

Earlier this month, Florida Rep. Donna Shalala (D) stated that the “only healthcare plan” that “President Trump and the GOP” have proposed would repeal protections for pre-existing conditions and destroy the national healthcare system.

While Trump and Republicans have said that the pre-existing conditions measure would be covered, some Republicans are going further in trying to ensure Americans that old injuries or ailments will be addresses, and will be covered.
