“Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble, our Polls are Sinking on the Double…”
You’ll have to drink that potion to find out what is in it.
“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”
Why can’t we have healthcare like the other countries that get more bang for the buck? Does everything have to get filtered through political party ideologies and middlemen?
We are a solid capitalist society run exclusively by super capitalists where the only thing that counts is profit. Why should they care about the health of riff raff….
“The Trump Administration has no strategy to address the on-going HIV/AIDS epidemic, seeks zero input from experts to formulate HIV policy, and – most concerning – pushes legislation that will harm people living with HIV and halt or reverse important gains made in the fight against this disease,” Schoettes wrote in a blistering guest column for Newsweek.
The column also pointed out that Trump has still not appointed anyone to head the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, something President Barack Obama had done 36 days after his inauguration.
“Within 18 months, that new director and his staff crafted the first comprehensive U.S. HIV/AIDS strategy. By contrast, President Trump appears to have no plan at all,” Schoettes wrote. “Public health is not a partisan issue. . . . If the President is not going to engage on the subject of HIV/AIDS, he should at least continue policies that support people living with and at higher risk for HIV and have begun to curtail the epidemic.”
A whole Newt is already in it!
It’s an awful way to get single payer. Lots of people will be very likely dead and bankrupt before we get it, but it will happen now, almost certainly.
