Health care didn't take up the majority of the debates during the election. Let's be frank here - it was a sandbox - mainly due to an extreme unbiased media coverage.
However, how Trump stands on 6 health care issues will be of utmost importance for many of us.
Interestingly enough, Trump has voiced concern that he wants to deal with bettering treatment for those struggling with addiction - the lost voices in society.
A number of issues have garnered media attention, including the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), rising prescription drug costs, and the opioid epidemic.
President-elect Donald Trump has laid out different approaches to addressing these and other health care issues. Central among these is his position to fully repeal the ACA.
I actually do think it will be interesting to see someone who is used to walking the talk in action. We are used to having sweet-talkers funded by big pharma, Monsanto etc. running The US. Having an outsider inside, to get rid of the lobbyism is an opportunity.
Instead of complaining and hating on him before he even has gotten a chance, I think we need to show a bit of tolerance instead of throwing him under the bus like a piece of molded bread. Now I wouldn't say this if I thought there was the least bit of evidence that the man was a racist, sexist pig. But let's be honest here: Trump has never said a racist nor misogynistic comment.
He is just a basic loud-mouth. Like most men are at the bar anyway.
And we are not used to having a loud-mouth around. We are used to being political correct. So political correct that we shout tolerance for all, yet we show tolerance for none who is different than we are. We must all be different in the same way. We like to hear things that sound nice and do not put us out of our comfort zone. Yet this has gotten us nowhere in the past.
If you have followed the media coverage - and compared the statements taken out of context to what was actually said by Trump, it is unbelievable that this is even called journalism. It is brainwashing - sponsored by Bayer, Monsanto amongst other corrupt industries.
See where he stands on six key health policy issues.
- Health Insurance Coverage and Costs
- Prescription Drugs
- The Opioid Epidemic
- Reproductive Health
