Rep Dreier does not believe a person with a brain tumor should receive health care

During the Republicans 32 attempt to repeal the Health Care Act, Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) stated that he does not believe a person with a brain tumor should receive health care.  He added that insurance companies should be able to deny people with pre-existing conditions and those who are sick should enroll in a state-based “high-risk insurance pools,” because they are too costly.

And I believe my state of California has a structure in place to deal with pre-existing conditions.  It’s a pooling process, which I think is one worthy of consideration, because 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 in health care provided.  I do believe that there can be a structure to deal with the issue of pre-existing conditions.

According to Think Progress, who refers to an L.A. Times article, the “high-risk pool” Dreier mentions Californians call it unaffordable, inaccessible, and ineffective.

    And then the states will not offer "high risk pools" because it's "socialized medicine."

      Exactly and it would be death camps. I often find it amazing how people can point a finger at someone, say that person is doing it, when in reality, they are the one's doing it.
