“You have better health care than we do!”
So said Donald Trump to Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
One problem. Australia’s great system is essentially a universal care, national system that takes care of its people.
TrumpNoCare does the exact opposite. He lets healthy young people and rich people off the hook. No more mandatory insurance, but that’s precisely why premiums will go up. Insurance is based on large pools so that risks are spread. When you don’t require young healthy people or rich people to buy insurance and broaden the pool, then those who will suffer are the sick, the poor, the middle class and the elderly. That is to say, most of America.
Unless we get a system like Australia.
