Democratic Themes

Last post, I did the GOP themes -- here are the primary Democratic ones:
(1) 45,000 annual deaths
The claim goes something like this -- 45.000 people die every year because they don't have insurance. This bill saves lives by closing this gap.

(2) Pre-existing conditions
This bill will prevent insurance companies from refusing to cover you or drop you because of a pre-existing condition.

(3) Regulating the insurance industry
The argument goes like this: the insurance industry is for profit and puts profit above health. Without regulation, they will make continue to make decisions contrary to health.
