This week I read about a government official who implied that only bad people get pre-existing conditions because they aren’t doing the “right thing.” Another representative indicated that people with pre-existing conditions are lazy and should do more to take care of their conditions.
Then, the house of representatives passed a bill to weaken the protections of pre-existing conditions.
This afternoon, while unpacking my son’s backpack I came across this.
“We dream of a world where people are healthy.”
Yes, we do dream of this, but in a world where three-year-old boys get type 1 diabetes, teenagers get cancer, and infants are born with heart defects, I think it’s safe to say that pre-existing is existing.
