GOP Promises Americans Will Be Able To Keep Current Medical Conditions If Obamacare Repealed

http://www.theonion.com/article/gop-promises-americans-will-be-able-keep-current-m-54995

“Whatever health problem you have right now, you will absolutely still be allowed to continue having it once Obamacare has been dismantled,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan, adding that the repeal of the landmark healthcare legislation would in no way prevent patients from maintaining their existing medical issues or even adding to their afflictions.

...

Ryan added that under the new system, millions of Americans would also see a 100 percent reduction in their health insurance premiums, copays, and coverage.

4. One of the pre-existing conditions is pregnancy.

So if you're a mother, you will get to keep your child.

6. He said "100% reduction in coverage"

according to this blog. That would reduce any premiums and co-pays, because that means you don't have any insurance. Ryan lies so much, he doesn't even realize when he tells the truth.

13. It's truly sad...

when you can get half way through an Onion article before checking to make sure it really is the onion. There was a time when it was obvious. I'm surprised the Onion can still come up with stories that are more ludicrous than comes out of government...and sometimes I think they just give up. No point trying to make electing a treasonous moron to the Whitehouse sound more absurd than it already is.
