Domestic Violence--A Pre-Existing Condition?

In case we needed any more evidence that the American health insurance system is a complete disaster, Washington DC and nine other states have declared being a victim of domestic violence to be a pre-existing condition.

That's reprehensible on so many levels, it's hard to know where to start.

The states are:
South Carolina
North Carolina
South Dakota
North Dakota

What a surprising group of states there! These 9 states are totally known both for their generous social services and for their compassion! The one question I have is where's Texas?

Why DC also did this is unknown.
