Opinion: Sen. Martha McSally is right that her position on pre-existing conditions has been unfairly distorted. But she puts the blame in the wrong place.
In a recent telephonic town hall, Martha McSally reportedly said that the liberal media and liberal fact-checkers were in “collusion” to give voters the impression that the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, was the only way to protect people with pre-existing conditions.
“Collusion” is too strong of a word. But it is certainly true that McSally’s position on pre-existing conditions has been unfairly distorted. And it is arguably true, and I would make the argument, that there are better ways to ensure health care for people with pre-existing conditions than the method employed by Obamacare.
However, McSally is wrong to put most of the blame
