Americans. Right now, these people often can’t find insurers willing to sell them policies or, if they can, the costs are prohibitive. Under Obama’s Affordable Care Act, insurance companies will be required, beginning in 2014, to sell policies to anyone who wants one and to ignore customers’ health status when setting prices.

Until someone has to deal with pre-existing conditions, they simply don't understand how horrible it can be to have your medical bills denied for obscure reasons.

Insurers look for any reason not to pay for medical care. As a business, you can't blame them. But as healthcare providers, their mission should be to pay for care, not to deny benefits.
