I find this hard to believe given his previous attempts to take health care away from people and raise their prices but this is a policy I would support. I don't believe him though.
The idea of a single payer is to let the free market compete to keep prices down how fu*king dumb does one jave to be to believe that it would raise the prices?

Insurance is a scam along with the over inflation of medical care at a 300% minium i know a NP and a guy in insurance.

The people we vote in and rely on dont necessarily do whats best for US. Its about their shareholders and board members as well as the administration and workers alike.

Universal healthcare should be a basic right to all living beings. A creative tax could easily produce that even money from weed sales could cover that for all americans if they just do full legalization!

Trump was never for single payer though. I agree with you that we should be going in that direction and I hope we get a chance to do that after 2020.

I think this is a bandaid to keep us from moving towards single payer; capping the rise in drug costs, and even rolling some of it back, would give the insurance agencies a chance to shift their profiteering to other areas of healthcare while giving a lot of people enough of a win to keep them from mobilizing politically. While this policy would no doubt be good, in my eyes it'd be a breadcrumb to distract the voting population from policies that could be a bigger, bolder, and more positive good.

Cause he would be sacrificing the voting record of his supporters in the Senate.

Come on with that blantantly ignorant statement @

You know its the policy of obamacare and the deal with those pharmaceutical criminal mafia to raise the rates. This has to do with the medical establishment as a whole and it's a war waged against the American people.

Where was Obummer on slashing prices?

At least commander Colbra (Trump) in yours and other eyes is doing sh*t for the People of this country over the pandering leftist and offering or giving illegals free care off our tax paying dollars.

fu*k that sh*t!

Literally has nothing to do with Obamacare. Also, Obamacare slowed the rate that premiums grew. So you're wrong twice.

From your own source


The Consumer Price Index for prescription drugs shows a O.6 percent reduction in prices in December 2018 when compared with December 2017, the biggest drop in nearly 50 years. The government index tracks a set of medications including brand drugs and generics.
Here's the second part of that paragraph, which you left out because you're full of sh*t...

However, that same index showed a 1.6 percent increase when comparing the full 12 months of 2018 with the entire previous year.


Thanks for pointing out that I was correct and you're wrong again.

Great move by the President. Infrastucture, healthcare, border wall etc will all be taken care of.

It can only be sooner and better if only the Democrats start supporting it.

The affordable care act is garbage as fu*k and sent premiums through the roof. It's also destroying Medicaid Medicare and bankrupting both do you know what happens when that happens everybody loses their Healthcare who's on those programs.

But its sounded like a great idea when in reality it was nothing more than a tax/Insurance scam to hook the youth for older folks need of the program. It universally steals money from both young folks who don't need it an older retirees who have money in the bank. It's essentially bleeding them dry with yearly higher rates in certain States.

Why not have it be one flat rate for everybody no matter which insurance you get from which state and then make those insurance companies compete to drive prices down?

Wait what was that just a good idea Ho Lee fuk how did I come up with that? Must be the spirit of Obama bahahahahahaha!!!

When the masses realoze how fu*ked they have been getting by former administrations and the government at large they will stop playing their game. If you listen to what trump has tried to say many would find he actually speaks commonsense, yes i know thats hard to believe but its fundamentally sound.

We become so passive by AI (phones and the many tech distractions) we are too blinded to organize and push back against the opposition and their fu*kery!

Unity is key, peaceful protesting works and brings attention to the crimes being committed against Every American by these tyrannical corporations and their paid off politicians and the lobbyist who donate to their campaigns for election or re-election.

If we could all just take enough time to step away from our bullsh*t jobs and really make an effort to stop and change the ways they're fu*king us collectively we could set things forward for every generation to come to be able to live a way better life than anything that we've seen so far.

The question is can we get over ourselves and stand up as one voice together enough to do it?
n*gga, all you did was ramble. And I stop taking your comment serious the moment you put Trump and common sense together. I give you credit that you at least pointed this out. But come on, neither one of those words fit with a man that lacks on both, and he can't even stay on message. Do you know how many speeches I have watched this clown give out, only for him to deviate into the most absurd and downright moronic rambles? Hell, I even watched his little phone interviews that he gives out to Fox News or Fox Business, and it is quiet cringing watching a clown who sounds like someone's drunk grandpa while those anchors are trying to find the most polite way to get him off the fu*king line.

Also, I know the ACA wasn't the best, but a lot of people that are poor at least have benefited from it and especially those with pre-existing health conditions. Before the ACA, if you had a pre-existing condition you only had two options with most insurance companies: 1) nothing or 2) go broke and still died.

Once again, the GOP had 10 years, and I say this again, 10 YEARS to get it together. They had 10 years to come up with something better, something cheaper, something that could benefit the country and what did we get? Nothing.

Instead, we really are witnessing their real plan: Get rid of the ACA, Medicare and Medicaid and bring nothing to the table.

See someone from his side would disagree with you because big gov shouldn’t be doing healthcare. It’s just a recipe for disaster.

That's a dumb point of view, Medicaid delivers cheaper care than private insurance even though Medicaid doesn't take advantage of the government's buying power and resultant ability to negotiate prices. You can just... look around the world and see that people are paying less money for better care when the government can use it's buying power to negotiate prices.

Premiums rose a record low for people who bought plans on the market, premiums went up a lot more for people who refused to go on the market (mostly uninformed Republicans who still ignorantly think Obama was a socialist). So people who bought into Obamacare fared well while people like you got penalized for your ignorance. The more you know...

Fake news




Here’s a shocker: The cost of prescription drugs are falling for the first time in 47 years.

The government on Tuesday said prescription prices sank 1% in February, marking the biggest one-month decline ever.

Tell that to the loved ones who lost family member because they couldn't afford their medication. Oh I forgot. Dead bodies is just more fake news to ghouls like you.
