One of Donald Trump's goals as President is to repeal the Affordable Care Act, often referred to as "Obamacare."
I can understand why many are upset about the fact that it's expensive. Good health care is expensive, and Medicare isn't free either.
But one of the mandates in Obamacare is that insurers can't penalize people for having preexisting conditions. Before that, it was almost impossible for people without health insurance who had already been diagnosed with diabetes to get any health insurance at all.
If Obamacare is repealed, does this mean millions of people with diabetes will suddenly find themselves with no insurance and no possibility of getting replacement insurance?
It's a scary thought.
