Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala D. Harris said Monday that the presidential election is directly tied to whether or not people will continue to enjoy insurance protections for pre-existing conditions under Obamacare. “We are going to do everything we can to make sure we win this election so those protections will not be taken away,” Ms. Harris told WFTV, an ABC News affiliate in Florida. Ms. Harris had been asked what a Joseph R. Biden administration would do for people with pre-existing conditions if the U.S. Supreme Court delivers an unfavorable ruling on Obamacare from the Democrats’ perspective.
Biden will lose big. Trump has stated many times that any insurance plan back by him will have pre-existing conditions. The left will lie and promise everthing, but deliver nothing.
