Pre-existing condition exclusions

Here is someone who has never had a preexisting condition:


"And I believe my state of California has a structure in place to deal with pre-existing conditions. It’s a pooling process, which I think is one worthy of consideration, because while I don’t that think someone who is diagnosed with a massive tumor should the next day be able to have millions and millions and millions of dollars in health care provided, I do believe that there can be a structure to deal with the issue of pre-existing conditions."

He is State Representative Dreier (R) of California. I'm glad I don't live there. Apparently if you have a tumor, you become a non-person because you aren't worth treating. Would that be the fate of these two people? First a little 2 year old boy  had a 33 lb tumor remove and then a 65 year old woman has a 51 lb tumor removed.

I hope this leads to his political down fall. First of all to make such a blanket statement is ridiculous. Not all tumors are cancerous that will require expensive and long term treatment. Second each person's life is valued equally. All have their rights to choose their medical treatment. Third I can't think of a third because I am too flabbergasted by the whole thing.
