Problem1: hospitals must treat, but patients don’t have to
Problem2: mom ‘n pop can’t compete with tax deductible
health care benies offered by Apple and Google
Problem3: bad tax policy that perturbs the economy, behaviors,
and causes rampant health care related inflation
Is Trump now hurting the GOP and by extension Conservative platform and policies?
The Trump base is solid, but so is the Resistance. Trump must now convert Indes, moderate Democrats, RINOs, and refrain from rallying the Democratic base. He needs to convince voters not to vote for Marxists, Anarchists and Globalists, or at least get them to stay home.
Also, try to win back some Conservative neverTrumpers. Those that “hated” Trump because he has what appears to be an open marriage. Virtue signaling was fashionable and low risk when Trump opponents thought he would NEVER win the primary, not to mention the general. The lesson – never say never. Trump needs to find a way to let them save face and return home, even if they have to crawl back.
The country is one election away from the real possibility of even a more open border AND single provider (not just payer) health care.
One hell of a risk to take. Some voters now will vote against their own self-interests just to deny Trump a Wall.
Simple questions. Health care is NOT complicated.
(1) If an American citizen experiences a serious and seriously expensive medical condition or episode, who makes the patient financially whole again? Except of course for the ACA premiums.
(2) Can the US govt. “force” a typical family of four to pay $2500/month for health insurance?
(3) When will ACA be $5,000/month for that family?
“A coalition of civil rights groups sued the state of California on Wednesday, charging that the state’s Medi-Cal program is a second-class health care plan that isn’t adequately funded.
The lawsuit argued that the 13.5 million Californians covered under Medi-Cal — the majority of whom are Latino — are trapped in “a separate and unequal system of health care” because of bureaucratic red tape and the low reimbursement rates for doctors and hospitals.” — Bay Area News Group
No one, not a private insurance industry or even a federal government, can give someone, promise someone health care.
A government could declare health care a right. It could even pass a law that says “all patients are created equal”. So what?
