HCR Question: does either bill prohibit the "pre-existing condition" discrimination?
I know a lot of the focus is on the Public Option, as it should be.

But this was such a big flaw in our for profit health care system - and since we're not going Single Payer, has either bill addressed this issue?

1. I believe both of them do
Can't deny coverage for pre-existing conditions, though I don't know if increased premiums can be charged. I am pretty sure it's no, though there are premium differences for age and geography.

3. Yes, definitely
What is the GOP plan anyway? Two band aids and a discount at Walmart?
