“And think about it. When one of these companies comes out with a new smartphone and it had a few bugs, what do they do? They fix it. They upgrade — unless it catches fire, and they just — (laughter) — then they pull it off the market. But you don’t go back to using a rotary phone. (Laughter) You don’t say, well, we’re repealing smartphones — we’re just going to do the dial-up thing. (Laughter) That’s not what you do.
Well, the same basic principle applies here. We’re not going to go back to discriminating against Americans with preexisting conditions. We’re not going to go back to a time when people’s coverage was dropped when they got sick. We’re not going to go back to a situation where we’re reinstating lifetime limits in the fine print so that you think you have insurance, and then you get really sick or you kid gets really sick, and you hit the limit that the insurance company set, and next thing you know they’re not covering you anymore, and you got to figure out how you come up with another $100,000 or $200,000 to make sure that your child lives. We’re not going to go back to that.”
