The current Republican healthcare bill proposes to place individuals in what the Republicans are now calling “high-risk pools,” thereupon practically gutting Obamacare’s pre-existing-condition and other life-saving provisions. They are what I call death pools. Forget Sarah Palin’s fictional “death panels”! The Republican death pools are real and devastating. They not only implicate self-serving insurance company panels (the real death panels), which decide who belongs in those death pools, they actually brazenly place premiums on individual lives and place obstacles to the lives of those in the pools!
