GOP/HEALTHCARE/MEDICARE/PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS/SOCIAL SECURITY: “And we spend a lot of time defending Medicare and Social Security, and we’re always going to protect patients with preexisting conditions.

People don’t understand that — that we are fighting very, very hard to get it taken care of for preexisting conditions. And if we weren’t, that wouldn’t happen. But the Republicans are very much behind that. Totally behind that. And if we do anything and if you see anything a little unusual, it doesn’t make it because we’re putting in very, very strong — taking care of patients with preexisting conditions.”
