This is a good bill. It protects those with genetic predisposition from being charged more for their health insurance. It is the start of the move down the slippery slope to a health insurance mandate covering all citizens regardless of risk and current disease status.
The bill of course doesn’t do all that but it sets the stage. If it’s logical to assure insurance coverage for those with genetic predisposition, it is even more logical to do the same for those who actually have the disease.
Of course the tough love group (conservative ideologues until they themselves develop illness) would maintain that the whole business is illogical and insurers should be able to rate, limit coverage, refuse coverage and charge people as they wish–which of course is another path to national health insurance.
