Trump announces an ever changing health plan
March 3, 2016 Leave a comment
Donald Trump announced his national health care plan and, not surprisingly, Trump wants to scrap Obamacare with his announced health care plan.
Trump has already had the heat on him [again] from the GOP saying that “everybody’s got to be covered” and that “the government’s gonna pay for it”. He said this in a September interview on 60 Minutes. Now he doesn’t mention either at all [directly].
Trump had originally planned to ensure that Americans who cannot afford health insurance will be covered at least partially by the government cutting “deals” with hospitals across the country. Not anymore. And good luck in making deals all the hospitals across the country. Whatever deal they would be anyways.
Trump also called in his health care plan for eliminating the individual mandate, which under Obamacare requires all Americans to have health insurance and which Trump suggested he was in favor of less than two weeks ago. His words were “I like the mandate. Here’s where I’m a little bit different. I don’t want people dying in the streets.”
Not surprising Trump stated that by enforcing current immigration laws, health care costs would decrease.
His plan also includes breaking down state barriers that prevent the sale of health insurance across state lines and making individuals’ health insurance premium payments fully tax deductible under his plan.
And for all this, he basically grabbed the health plan of paul Ryan [not running] and called it his own.
