The ACS, AHA and the ADA lobbied against HR.3472 which promoted health insurance premium discounts of up to 20% for healthy behaviors relating to smoking, blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar.

Why? This is what they said "This bill might open the door for discrimination of people with pre-existing conditions, and also those who are genetically predisposed to these conditions. Most importantly it would restrict access to healthcare to those who need it most and research has shown that this has a negative effect on health".

I never got the impression they cared about discrimination against workers, seems to me they promote it.
