Thieves: Santorum Says Those Who Have Preexisting Conditions Are “Scamming” Healthcare

Former Republican senator Rick Santorum said in an interview that the healthcare system is being scammed by “millions” of Americans who are claiming to have preexisting conditions.

Based on his baseless claim, he is urging Republicans to “repeal and replace’ the Affordable Care Act because the scams are ruining the entire healthcare industry.

 

“Pre-existing conditions, though it’s very popular,” the former Republican senator claimed, “what the reality is today that thousands, maybe approaching millions of Americans, are paying nine months for insurance. Why? Because you pay for your insurance for nine months, there’s a provision in Obamacare that says you can’t be thrown off your plan for three months.”

“So, you stop paying in September until the end of the year,” he continued. “You have a right to guaranteed [coverage for] preexisting conditions. You can buy a new plan in January. So people are paying nine months for 12 months of care. And it’s happening more and more and more as people get the gig.”

“Obamacare is a failure! But you’re going to need 60 votes to change preexisting conditions and other things to make the system work. And that’s the problem of repeal and replacing is you can’t do it because it’s a broken system.”

Republicans are more worried about baseless claims of fraud than they are worried about taking away healthcare from people who are suffering from chronic illness and cancer. What will these people do with their preexisting conditions once the Republicans take away their healthcare? They will receive a death sentence.
