Wow, Pre-existing conditions was a a part of the 1993 Healthcare coverage HRC proposed.

I have been studying the history of healthcare insurance and healthcare in the USA. Many surprises. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_health_care_plan_of_1993

https://www.congress.gov/bill/103rd-congress/house-bill/3600/text (full text of the proposed Bill)

I had forgotten about Wm Kristol's role in defeating this movement.

Nothing new under the sun, I guess.

1. I remember it very well.

The insurance industry destroyed the initiative, with a lot of help from the AMA. The Republicans gleefully wrecked all momentum while attacking Hillary Clinton for daring to be a woman who actually had opinions and ideas.

Not much has changed in 25 years on the sexism front.

2. Everything you said is true.

And I also remember the criticism heaped on Hillary for actually performing a job in her husband's administration. Boggle the mind that we haven't really progressed much as a nation.
