The Ripon Advance: GOP House members seek ongoing protections for people with pre-existing health conditions

Numerous Republicans seek to fix the nation’s broken health care system via amendments or repeal of Obamacare, the nickname for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which President Barack Obama signed into law in March 2010.

But regardless of future actions that might be taken to change the law, Republican lawmakers want to ensure that protections for pre-existing conditions remain intact, according to the congressional record summary of House Resolution (H. Res.) 1066, introduced on Sept. 13 by U.S. Rep. David Young (R-IA).

Among the 27 original cosponsors of H. Res. 1066 are U.S. Reps. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Kevin Yoder (R-KS), Dave Joyce (R-OH), Mimi Walters (R-CA), Don Bacon (R-NE), David Valadao (R-CA), Susan Brooks (R-IN), Jim Renacci (R-OH), Bill Huizenga (R-MI), Fred Upton (R-MI), Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), John Katko (R-NY), Dan Donovan (R-NY), and Martha McSally (R-AZ).
