Could there be any description more creepy than "genetic winners" or its reverse, "genetic losers"? More specifically, "genetic lottery winners". This is what Professor Jonathon Gruber of MIT told NBC's Chuck Todd in an interview on Obamacare last week. Gruber reportedly was quite involved in the formation of the health care act law.
"The only way to end that discriminatory system is to bring everyone into the system and pay one fair price. That means that the genetic winners, the genetic lottery winners who've been paying an artificially low price because of this discrimination now will have to pay more in return."
I'm not sure it's fair to describe this as discriminatory. If you have need of insurance a lot you'll pay more than someone does not use it. Same with auto insurance. If you are always sending in a claim, eventually you'll be paying more than someone who never does. How is this discrimination?
