Trump Did This And Made Healthcare Almost Impossible To Obtain For Most Americans



There are a million different reasons you could point to for how President Donald Trump‘s positively insane policies are making the American people much, much worse off, to the point that us on the Left are struggling to see how it could get much worse, even less than halfway through his term as President. Perhaps one of the less discussed but indescribably significant aspects of that is the ludicrous ways he has butchered this country’s healthcare systems.

During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Trump pledged time and time again to repeal the Affordable Care Act – more commonly known as Obamacare. Because everyone hates cheap and efficient healthcare, right? Except, of course, thanks to the President’s total incompetence and lack of suitability for the great office he holds, he was completely unable to pass any kind of bill through Congress to actually repeal Obamacare. Which is monumentally embarrassing, if nothing else.

As a result, his tactic has bascially been to hinder and try to disrupt Obamacare in any way he can, since he isn’t actually powerful enough to just get rid of it. So, whenever he gets an opportunity, he just throws a massive spanner in the works. Which, as you can imagine, is utterly terrible for the millions of ordinary American people who rely on it for basic healthcare.

We have known that for a long time, but we have never known just how much our nation has been affected by this horrendous approach to healthcare policy – until now. The Kaiser Family Foundation recently published a comprehensive, in-depth study into the consequences of Trump’s anti-Obamacare healthcare policy stance, and it makes for pretty grim reading.

The study examined a whole range of benchmark silver plans (which are generally considered to be the default level of basic healthcare insurance coverage) across several major cities in 20 states. Their results show that 15 of those cities – that’s 75 per cent – will see massive increases of at least 10 per cent in the next year alone. All of those people are going to see the cost of their healthcare plans leap by at least 10 per cent over the next twelve months alone. That is ridiculous. What’s more, as stated in the report, the “cost of employer-sponsored coverage is expected to rise around 5 or 6 percent next year, benefits consultants say.”

Expect to hear a lot of this from the Democrats as we head into the 2020 election season, and rightly so. We need to be talking about this a lot more than we do currently.
