Donald Trump wants to replace Obamacare with a single-payer health care system, GOP congressman says

 

As the Summer of Trump wore on, a quiet congressman from Wisconsin decided he'd had enough of his party's ostentatious presidential frontrunner.

Reid Ribble, a Republican from the Green Bay area, went public not only to blast Donald Trump's name calling -- particularly Trump’s calling Fox News talk show host Megyn Kelly a "bimbo" -- but to call him out as not being a conservative.

In one interview, Ribble made several claims about Trump's non-conservatism to Milwaukee conservative talk show host Charlie Sykes. One was about a so-called single-payer health care system, in which the government pays for care for all citizens.

"The interesting this is, I'm not the guy who's saying we should have completely socialized medicine," Ribble said Sept. 8, 2015 on WTMJ-AM (620).

"I want to repeal Obamacare and replace it with (a) free-market system. He wants to replace it with a single-payer system. That's hardly a conservative posture."

In July 2015, conservative columnist Erick Erickson wrote that Trump "has supported a Canadian-style universal health care system."

In 1999, during his short-lived 2000 Reform Party presidential bid, Trump told CNN's Larry King: "If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. ... I believe in universal healthcare."

And in his 2000 book "The America We Deserve," Trump made a strong pitch for universal health care. As to how the country might achieve universal coverage, Trump focused on a Canadian-style, single-payer plan.

Heath Savings Accounts through nationwide insurers.

 

Nominal premiums for catastrophic needs.

 

Some portion that is not used is invested like an IRA and grows to make an account that is used for day to day med needs.

 

Much the way it was before, but w/ a much larger competing field of companies.

 

The bottom rung and the poor elderly will be subsidized ... of course.

Not only does Trump want socialized medicine. Big Business wants socialized medicine. I don't understand why cons don't get it. They think they are so smart about the economy. Socialized medicine would transform the economy for the better. Today, when a company employees a worker and pays them $10 an hour, they are actually paying more than $20 to cover health insurance costs. If we had Universal Healthcare, companies could afford, and save money, by paying employees $15 an hour. This would allow workers more discretionary spending, which is what grows the economy. Universal healthcare and restrictions on Big Pharma price gouging would elevate the economy overnight.

The plan should be this...

 

Jail or kill all big pharma scum and using forfeiture laws all their ill gotten wealth will be confiscated.

 

Kill or jail all medical fraudsters because they are traitors.

 

Make medical school free and only allow the best and the brightest in.

 

MDs are federal employee and are held to strict standards based on the Hippocratic oath.

 

FDA bribe takers will be jailed or killed.

 

Cures will be found.

Relieving business from healthcare expenses would certainly benefit businesses. That being said, are we ready to hand over health care decisions to our government?

 

Are we positive about that?

Just when the millennials thought they had a chance libbers come along to tell them "wait a minute, we need to throw you into medicare" End ACA. Keep the best, toss out the rest and set a market system including Medical savings accounts for all. Nothing is free. Medicare costs money and will just be another ever growing tax.

Hmm, who can you believe?

 

 

you can't believe any of his cabinet picks

you can't believe his campaign manager

you can't believe the media

you can't believe the GOP

you can't believe Tramp

 

I don't think so, even if I saw Tramps lips move.

 

 

NEXT!!

Yes.

 

This is coming in the near future regardless of government. AI, in the form of diagnostic apps, will lower healthcare costs substantially. Now that medicine has become an information technology, we can expect exponential growth in this industry. In less than five years most people will have a 'health page' where they will upload data. AI algorithms will diagnose illness, suggest medication, and map out ways individuals can stay healthy. Health insurance execs and doctors will be hit financially in that they will no longer be multimillionaires, but they never should have been in the first place.

If Trump could get Americans Universal Healthcare he would be a national hero, regardless of his past rhetoric.

I'm tired of your socialists. Where the hell do you get off forcing me to pay for someone else's healthcare? I have never understood the mentality of socialists. It's always take from the people and force them to do things. They have no place in America.

Universal healthcare benefits all Americans. I'm sorry if you are too ignorant to recognize it. You'll pay through the fucking nose and like it.

If you ever need a top notch cardiologist, you may be very glad he's been well compensated. As for single payer, in theory, I think it works and is necessary. As a practical matter, I see red flags from here to the Florida keys.

It's not "hatred" for "young Americans", it's more disdain for your belief in a failed ideology where unicorns and rainbows are going to fly up your ass on command.

 

As once said- "It's what you learn AFTER you think you know it all that really counts."

 

The REAL world works NOTHING like your conceptual ideological drivel thinks it works.

The reality of insurance is that it is based on shared risk. People who do not get sick subsidize those who do. To demand that insurance carriers provide insurance with people with previous heath problems raises the risk to a level that many of them cannot afford, and the only way to make their premiums lower is to REQUIRE that people with healthier histories also buy into the plan.

 

If you do away with the fines/taxes/whatever that provide an incentive for the healthiest to buy insurance, then insurance for the rest of the people will become unaffordable.

 

The best way to do this is do what we do with Social Security: make insurance a single payer plan run buy the government. It would be possible to allow private firms to offer equal or better coverage at the same price, as is done with Medicare.

 

Medical insurance is very complicated and it is obvious that Trump has not thought it through. He is a simplistic thinker and leaves the technical stuff up to hirelings. I am pretty sure that he has no real detailed knowledge of how the AC and heating systems work in Trump Tower.

All except the insurance industry.
