Trump Reveals He Really DOES Like Obamacare.

trump likes the mandate

Donald Trump claims Obamcare is a “disaster” and he will “repeal and replace it”. However, when asked last night  about the mandate, he says he likes it (at the CNN GOP Town Hall, 2/18/16). Mr. Trump Provides more evidence is is merely a blowhard and a fake conservative. He will certainly make many “deals” with crony corporate insurance companies to make sure they keep getting their government subsidies for the mandated insurance. After all, he also says he wants to use tax dollars to trump universal government healthcaremakes sure EVERYONE has health insurance. He also said last night on the CNN Town hall that we should put more people into Medicare to make sure they are covered.

Trump will not repeal Obamacare. He will grow government health care. More government control means more rationing, more waiting lines, lower quality care and less access to care patients can trust.

    This information is not all facts. 1 factual statement and then your personal opinion and prediction about that statement which may or may not be correct is fine, but I think you should present the information as your opinion so it is clear that it is not fact. More often your writing’s are based on actual facts and not personal preference or personal interest that effect revenue in the medical profession. Since you are in the medical profession and regulated fees related to health care effect your bottom line, I think it is fair to ask that you share how health care for all effect your revenue and other medical professionals revenue. That way your opinion can be put in to perspective as to why you feel this way. Obama Care needs many corrections and it is silly for anyone to debate that but, intelligent, quality health care for all does have a spot in America. We basically pay for all health care now but in an unorganized fashion such as ER abuse, etc. One small example of this point is last night I had dinner with a executive with one of the world’s largest medical product companies and he told me how one of his products that prevented infection in patients is selling like crazy. In the past it didn’t sell at all. He believe’s that now that medical providers are not reimbursed by insurance companies for their errors, there are simply less errors and less problems with infections after surgery. In short, there are benefits to providing intelligent health care to call.

      Tom, with all due respect, what I am offering is factual.
      Trump DID say he supported the mandate.
      Trump DID say he want the government to pay for health insurance and health care for Americans – rather than the private market being responsible.
      Trump DID say (lastnight) he wants to expand the population Medicare covers (that is a Bernie Sanders position)!
      Trump DID say he wants to make “deals” with hospitals to get more health care access.
      The Obamacare Insurance facts and other Obamacare pieces running for years through this blog show everything I am offering is a fact.
      Please my friend, tell me what I have said here is NOT based in fact?

        David,

        Respectfully having a different thought process, I simply don’t your think statements like “However, when asked last night about the mandate, he says he likes it “] suggest he likes Obama care. I think he likes all Americans to have some type of health care and that would reference “mandate” in my opinion. I believe he will replace or change Obama Care to be something much different. So I don’t believe Trump and Obama are going to be exactly the same or grow Obama care as it appears you are saying. One more example would be your statement [“He will certainly make many “deals” with crony corporate insurance companies to make sure they keep getting their government subsidies for the mandated insurance.”] This again is perception of the future and not fact. I and probably many others disagree with this prediction ( non-factual ) statement. It is your opinion. In my opinion, I believe he will not allow the insurance companies to control the negotiations and health care for all would look much different and include private market competition possibly a 2 or 3 tier system that our congress will also have to enjoy. Just my opinion. I think we all know Obama care stinks. Trump doesn’t like to connect his name with bad products, so I simply disagree that it is a fact that he will grow Obama Care make crony deals with insurance companies.

          Tom, it is more and more apparent that Trump likes government control of health care.

          1. He now wants the government controlling drug prices. That is a democrat talking point and always leads to shortages and ends innovation/research.
          2. He wants the government to pay for everyone’s health care if they don’t buy it themselves.
          3. Trump wants the government to mandate that people buy insurance.

          Those are all components of Obamacare and democrat health policy.

          TRUMP himself has said he will make “deals” with hospitals to “solve problems” in health care. There is not even a mild strain in logic involved to conclude with absolute certainty he will help cronies who want to ration for their own profit.

          Trump likes Obamacare. He just would rather call it Trump-care.

      Pat,

      Intelligent heath care could be a 500 page book easily. In short, Obama Care is not intelligent health care. So nearly anything compared to that would be “smarter” health care. Intelligent would be something much better than Obama Care. Get my drift? I hope you didn’t expect a one line answer with such a broad question. I think Intelligent health care is something you and I and 1,000+ others would have a different opinion on. Another way to phrase Intelligent health care would be ” common sense health care” or ” health care that makes sense to all”. To clarify…. these are my opinions. Not yours. My opinions may be different than yours. That doesn’t make you a bad person nor me. 😀 I am simply happy people like you are passionate about our USA. Let’s stay united. 😀 Make it a great day!

        Tom, intelligent health care is that which comes when patients are in charge. That means free markets, minimal regulation, insurance as an indemnity policy (not a benefits policy) and no bureacratic interference. HEre is the plan I basically wrote when I was with the FMA leadership team (they are now converting to politicians, so are not a reliable source of freedom any more). http://www.sunbeamtimes.com/freedom-based-health-system-reform/

        There is no role for committees to design “infection prevention” programs like your friend is making money from. The solutions delivered by these committees are all about rationing, command & control, and cronyism for profit.

          David,

          I agree with your last post. I looked through your plan briefly and it looks great!

          Hope your doing well!!

          Make it a great day!

            Tom, there is ABSOLUTELY no doubt that Trump is a big-gov liberal on health care.

            From 2011…Donald Trump was supporting Canadian-style, single payer, government run health care.
            http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/donald-trump-we-need-a-health-care-system-like-what-canada-has/

            Donald Trump may be running as a supposed conservative now, but ten years ago he was sounding a lot like Barack Obama:
            For a few months, Trump hashed out a policy agenda. It wasn’t much, but it was enough to fill a quickie book: The America We Deserve, published in January 2000. The Trump of 11 years ago sounds a lot like the Trump who has taken over cable TV and the Huffington Post top banner these past few weeks: He’s against immigration amnesty. He’s worried about terrorism. He’s rending his hair over America’s economic decline. Oh, and there were a few other things.

            “We must have universal healthcare,” wrote Trump. “I’m a conservative on most issues but a liberal on this one. We should not hear so many stories of families ruined by healthcare expenses.”
            The goal of health care reform, wrote Trump, should be a system that looks a lot like Canada. “Doctors might be paid less than they are now, as is the case in Canada, but they would be able to treat more patients because of the reduction in their paperwork,” he writes.
            The Canadian plan also helps Canadians live longer and healthier than Americans. There are fewer medical lawsuits, less loss of labor to sickness, and lower costs to companies paying for the medical care of their employees. If the program were in place in Massachusetts in 1999 it would have reduced administrative costs by $2.5 million. We need, as a nation, to reexamine the single-payer plan, as many individual states are doing.
            Trump also didn’t think much of Republicans back then:
            The year was 1999. Pets.com stock was trading at $11 per share. Nobody was all that interested in Bill Clinton’s birth certificate. More important, the Republican Party’s nomination looked ungettable, sure to be captured by George W. Bush. So Trump left the party.
            “I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy, right?” he told Tim Russert on Meet the Press. “I mean, just what’s going on is just nuts.”

            You’re being played, Republicans. It’s really rather obvious, and the extent to which you’re pandering to this guy makes you the kind of sucker that would make P.T. Barnum giddy with delight.
