Finally! An plan that will cover pre-existing conditions! In the past, it was nearly impossible to get health insurance if you already had a medical condition. This is extremely detrimental to many people who were caught in that red zone, because they needed help and simply could not get it. ObamaCare left them to die with their unplayable medical debt.
However, President Donald Trump has guaranteed that the new ObamaCare plan WILL, in fact, cover those conditions. He tweeted, “Health care plan is on its way. Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions!”

Fox News reports:
President Trump said Sunday that Americans with pre-existing medical conditions will be covered under Republicans’ new ObamaCare overhaul, as House GOP leaders try to pass the measure as early as this week.
Trump’s tweet came several hours after he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the measure has a clause that “guarantees” people with pre-existing conditions will be covered and that it will lower the cost of ObamaCare insurance premiums.
However, House Republicans’ latest overhaul plan appears to allow states not to include the pre-existing requirement in standard ObamaCare insurance policies, under certain circumstances.
The White House appeared eager last week to get the House to approve the measure, allowing Trump to tally a major legislative achievement during his first 100 days in office, which concluded Saturday.
Whether Ryan can pass a bill this week remains uncertain, considering the spending bill passed last week kept the government fully operational for just one additional week. And support for the plan from rank-and-file House Republicans appears tepid.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on “Fox News Sunday” dismissed Trump’s arguments that Democrats have blocked efforts to fix ObamaCare, arguing the president’s GOP-controlled House doesn’t need Democratic votes to pass an overhaul measure.
At Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night, he stated, “We’re going to get this damn thing passed quickly.” He also stated that it will have less failures than Obamacare as well.
Here is a partial transcript of Trump’s speech on Saturday:
“Obamacare’s dead, it’s gone. The increases were massive last year. They’re going to be bigger this year and the insurance companies are fleeing. One of the top people in the insurance industry said, “Obamacare is in a death spiral.” There’s nothing they can do. So they can’t compare something to it because it won’t be there very long. Believe me, can’t be there very long. It’s not working. It’s been a failure.
Under Obamacare, we have seen double and triple digit hikes in premiums and many Americans left with only a single insurer to choose from and now many of those insurers are fleeing also. You have places like the great state of Tennessee where I left two weeks ago where half of the state already has no insurance carrier … and many others.
So, Obamacare is a catastrophe created exclusively by the Democrats in Congress. They know it’s no good, they know it’s not working. And by the way, we’re going to get something great. We’re going to get the premiums down. We’re going to get the deductibles way down. We’re going to take care of every single need you’re going to want to have taken care of, but it’s not going to cost that kind of money. We’re going to bring it down. You’re going to see it, premiums down. We will repeal and replace Obamacare, you watch.
We’re going to give Americans the freedom to purchase the health care plans they want, not the health care plans forced on them by the government. And I’ll be so angry at … all of our congressmen in this room if we don’t get that damn thing passed quickly.”
