Preexisting Conditions in the Midterms

In February, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley joined a Republican lawsuit to overturn the ACA, and with it, protections for Americans suffering from preexisting medical conditions that previously could be excluded from insurance coverage. Now, running to unseat Democrat Claire McCaskill in one of the nation’s most competitive U.S. Senate races, Hawley is airing a sympathetic ad using the affliction of his 5-year-old son, diagnosed this year with a rare bone disease. “A preexisting condition. We know what that’s like,” he says in the ad. “I support forcing insurance companies to cover all preexisting conditions.” (Tracy Jan, Washington Post)
