My Life With a Pre-Existing Condition
The Nib

My preexisting condition was shocking — shingles and an rx for an anti-depressant and 2 antibiotics within the past 2 years.

Some of the least healthy people I know — actual people, not just imaginary examples for the sake of discussion — want the ACA gone. Even though they have personally benefited from it. Their reasoning? I can’t follow it past how much they disliked the former administration. They are angry about losing their “freedoms” — angry that someone might tell them to not eat junk food all the time, stop smoking, or wear a seat belt. They actively put themselves in worse shape than they could be and do very little to change their situation except blame Liberals for forcing Obamacare on them.

Why is health care a for-profit industry?
