3. I'd say that it's a valid call. The issue then isn't to fix this, it's to fix the problem.

I can see how domestic violence is a pre-existing condition. For that matter, serving in the military would be as well. Just about everything can lead to some special risk. So the only thing to do is to get rid of Pre-existing conditions, and the only way to do that is single payer. I know, I know, it's off the table. But seriously, if you owned an insurance company would you insure someone who was almost guaranteed or who was actually guaranteed to cost you more in payouts than you collect in premiums? Of course you wouldn't. It would be insuring against interest.

Making the world aware of all the ways the private insurers can screw us over is a good thing.

5. Horrified, but not shocked.
Remember: These are the people writing the new health care bill(s).

Oh, I'm sorry, they're not writing the bills, just 'providing input' ... by invitation .... from the guy we elected to the White House.

9. How is it possible that the Republicans that were in favor of this suffered no consequences?
How was/is this not a huge news story? (Yes, I know the disgusting answer to this important question)

12. It IS horrifying.
I am outraged, and saddened, to see this.

I understand why the "insurance" companies are doing it, but I don't condone it.

I hate the whole concept of the pre-existing condition. This is especially ridiculous.
