An emotional Debbie Wasserman Schultz recounted the story of how she overcame breast cancer to illustrate how Obamacare’s provisions banning insurance discrimination for pre-existing conditions will affect her.
“In 2007, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2008, right before the convention, I had one of seven surgeries that year,” she said. “I was fortunate. I had good insurance and great doctors. Today, I stand before you as a survivor! But like every breast cancer survivor, I now have a pre-existing condition.”
