"Elizabeth Edwards: McCain and I wouldn’t be covered under his health care plan."

Elizabeth Edwards said this weekend that she and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who have both been treated for cancer, have one thing in common: “Neither one of us would be covered by his health policy.” Under McCain’s plan, insurance companies “wouldn’t have to cover preexisting conditions like melanoma and breast cancer,” she said, since cancer survivors are routinely denied insurance when they try to purchase it as individuals.

Update

Elizabeth will be writing a post on ThinkProgress soon to further discuss her views on this issue.
