Donald Trump released his health care plan, finally detailing the way in which he would fulfill his campaign trail promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.
He calls for Medicaid to be transformed into a state block grant program and for the tax exemption on employer-based health insurance plans to be extended to individuals who purchase coverage on their own!
Under Trumpcare, no American will go without coverage.
According to a release from Trump Tower, Trumpcare will utilize a system in which the government will make all payments to insurance providers and Americans will have their share of the cost added to their tax bill. Everyone can then choose their own doctors without having to worry about whether or not the plan is right for them. All insurance plans will cover all conditions regardless of age, up to 65, when Medicare will kick in and cover almost everything.
The best part is, only American citizens and legal residents are eligible.
Further, Trump ties illegal immigration to his healthcare plan, writing “providing healthcare to illegal immigrants costs us some $11 billion annually … If we were to simply enforce the current immigration laws and restrict the unbridled granting of visas to this country, we could relieve healthcare cost pressures on state and local governments.”
Trump, who after almost every mass shooting has responded to questions on gun control with an answer about mental health, also noted the need for mental health institution reform.
His plan states that “[f]amilies, without the ability to get the information needed to help those who are ailing, are too often not given the tool to help their loved ones.”
Poor people with no jobs will be required to work a certain amount of hours if they can’t afford health care and retirees will move to a voucher system where they’ll be given coupons for discounts on stuff Medicare doesn’t cover.
So all of the fears will be gone. Everyone’s premiums will be assessed as a percentage of their income, just like their taxes, and nobody will get a free ride on the backs of others
The final point in his plan states the need to “[R]emove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products.”
Trump says that “Congress will need the courage to step away from the special interests and do what is right for America” and that despite pharmaceuticals being private companies, they “provide a public service.”
