    Trumpcare is coming, with a roll out next week. There will likely be lots of protests and disagreement. Let's discuss Trumpcare here -

    Have you got an extra copy of what it will entail, pj?

    Inquiring minds need to know.
    Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV)

    1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

    2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

    It will be introduced to America and afterwards Congress will be able to make changes as necessary. Very simply, it won't be passed without intense scrutiny, so we will all know what it entails very soon.

    The financing doesn't add up - how can you introduce a cheaper plan that includes those with pre-existing conditions without requiring a compulsory component?

    If they go the private insurance route, you will have the same insurance companies that participated in Obamacare, if they go the universal healthcare route, the right-wing of the Republican Party will refuse to support it.

    John Boehner was right, after the Republicans finish reshuffling the deckchairs, Trumpcare will be nothing more than Obamacare under a different name!

    Obviously "ok doser" has nothing intelligent to contribute to the question as to how the Republicans can reinvent healthcare that is better and cheaper while still accommodating pre-existing conditions!

    The reality is that "magic" or "no magic," many conservative Republicans may vote for the repeal of Obamacare but not to replace.

    Despite having Republican majorities in both Houses, the Trumpcare replacement may not pass through Congress without Democratic support!

    Sounds rather socialist to me.

    It is. The only way you can take care of everyone with better care than now, with lower premiums, is to socialize the entire medical system.

    And Trump's piddling around with it, will get us there faster than Obamacare would have.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Now that we've both agreed that Donald Trump is a socialist...

    the free enterprise system of economics is one of the many things that made America great, when used in the medical system (again) it will be beneficial to all.

    I doubt very much that Trump has an ideology other than "what's in it for me?" He's an opportunist. But yes, his earlier idea of a one-time 15% tax on the worth of wealthy people to remove the debt is about as socialistic idea as there could be.

    the free enterprise system of economics is one of the many things that made America great, when used in the medical system (again) it will be beneficial to all.
    What's wrong with American health care has its roots in price and wage controls in WWII, so you're not far off. The question is how to do a reset now. There will always be a need for care for catastrophic health care and I don't see any country with a market solution for that, that works. If there is one, it would be the way to go.
