Insurance firms know what’s best

Elected officials, hear my plea. You must save me and other Americans from ourselves.

Please make it legal again for insurance companies to drop me because of a pre-existing medical condition.

Please let my insurance company raise my rates as much as it wants without having to justify the increase. I’m sure it has my best interests at heart.

Please let my insurance company impose lifetime limits on how much they will cover.

Finally, if elected representatives and the insurance companies say that the Obamacare reforms that end all these bad practices will cost billions of dollars more than President Obama claims, then it must be true.
