I mention a old Trump plan here, irrelevant I know, but the point is no politician in the USA understands – or tells Americans the truth about – health care.
The Republican opposition to Obamacare is irrational. Democratic ideas are not real solutions, but bandaids. The promises of Obamacare were never realized.
It’s been twenty-seven years since the aborted Clinton effort at health care reform.
Here we are, twenty-one years into the 21st century still with no reasonable way to assure health care coverage to every American, still looking to assign blame in the wrong places and still not understanding the cost of health care is driven not by premiums, but by the use and cost of the health care we receive and demand.
What exactly do Americans want for their health care? Unlimited access, unlimited care when and where desired, no out-of-pocket costs, low insurance premiums?
That’s not in the cards.
President Trump released his “America First Healthcare Plan” on Thursday; it consisted of an executive order promising to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions, though without specifics, and directing his administration to take steps against surprise billing and toward greater hospital price transparency. Trump also announced a plan to send 33 million Medicare beneficiaries a $200 gift card for prescription drugs.
