Republicans Vote 39 Times To Restore Pre-Existing Condition Exclusions For Insurance Companies

House Republicans have voted 39 times to repeal ObamaCare.  Repealing ObamaCare means health insurance companies can once again deny medical coverage to individuals for "pre-existing" conditions.  After a repeal insurance companies could also spend unlimited amounts on executive and CEO pay, marketing,  etc. instead of the 15% or 20% (depending on the size of the company) they are limited to now.  Under ObamaCare insurance companies need to spend at least 80% of revenue on actual healthcare. Republicans, at the beck and call of Corporations, not interested in the needs of the middle class or the poor.

 President Barack Obama
"if you think you have a better plan for making sure that every American has the security of quality, affordable health care, then stop taking meaningless repeal votes and share your concrete ideas with the country."
