Healthcare Stocks SOAR After Joe Biden Condemns Medicare For All

Healthcare stocks are soaring right now, and CNBC’s Jim Cramer believes that it has everything to do with Joe Biden’s recent statements about not supporting Medicare For All. And there’s a good reason to believe this. Before Biden announced his run, healthcare stocks were tanking as Democratic candidates were all promising some form of Medicare for All (with some offering half-hearted proposals, but still enough to scare health insurance companies.) Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

For most of this year, we have seen story after story come out showing us and telling us that stocks for healthcare companies, major pharmaceutical companies and hospital corporations have all been taking a nosedive during the Democratic primary. That is, of course, up until just a few weeks ago,
because suddenly these health insurance stocks started skyrocketing once again. And whereas people were afraid to invest in these companies, suddenly something happened that came along and made them feel good about investing in healthcare, basically putting their money into companies that are ripping off American citizens. So what in the world good at have been that made people suddenly lose all their fears about insurance companies and big Pharma and hospital corporations? Well, according to CNBCs Jim Crazy Kramer, sorry, the crazy guy who hosts mad money, uh, that thing that came along and ease their fears was Joe Biden and Joe Biden surging to the top of the Democratic field after his announcement that he was running after it was official.
Made people willing to invest in these stocks again and make a lot more money for the health care industry. Would she, why would Joe Biden do that? Well, it turns out, and Kramer verifies this. That is because Joe Biden doesn’t support Medicare for all because Joe Biden’s not gonna interrupt the health care system that we have in place today. Joe Biden likes that. Joe Biden, uh, through the affordable care act helped create it. So yeah, he’s not going to upset it or blow it up because we’re basically operating off the system that was put in place by the administration that he was a part of. He served as vice president for eight years to Barack Obama. The affordable care act is basically the only thing that’s left over from that administration that Trump hasn’t killed yet. So of course, Joe Biden’s not gonna push for a medicare for all. They only got one accomplished from a complement remaining. And that’s what he wants to keep.
And that’s why these health insurance companies, big Pharma Hospital corporations, they are celebrating right now. The fact that Joe Biden is the front runner on the democratic side because they understand that if he wins the nomination, there is no chance that their profit party that they’d been having for over a decade is going to come to an end. In fact, they’re pretty much guaranteed regardless of the outcome of the election on another four years of it, at least make no mistake. Big Pharma Hospital corporations and health insurance companies have been enjoying this massive profit party so that we’ve covered in the trial lawyer magazine since its inception.

How French Health Care Compares To The US System

France’s health-care system, which is called “social security,” has been globally recognized for overall quality. In a 2000 report, the World Health Organization ranked it the best national health-care system in the world.

As Democrats push a government-funded health care and President Donald Trump campaigns on repealing Obamacare without a clear alternative, Health care has become a major focus of the 2020 elections. Many Americans are considering what kind of health care system they may want.

“Medicare for All” has become a mantra among the left-of-center Democrats, with most of their plans calling for a universal single-payer health-care system, closely modeled after Canada’s health-care system. But there’s another national health-care system that’s worth paying attention to: France’s.

Healthcare Is The Winning Issue For Democrats In 2020

If Democrats really want to beat the Republicans in 2020, there is only one way to do it – They have to run on a strong, affordable healthcare system that covers all American citizens. That option is Medicare For All, and the American people are ready for it. Republicans have no plan on healthcare and voters understand that, according to the latest round of polling, and Democrats can seize this opportunity to secure a victory in 2020. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

The Democratic Party right now, at least a good handful of some of the candidates have some really good plans on how to move this country forward. I mean, Elizabeth Warren every other day at this point is coming out with a well detailed plan on how to accomplish what she wants to accomplish. We have other candidates out there, Bernie Sanders leading the charge on issues like Medicare for all. Okay.
Other candidates are little kind of milk toast on. Some of these things may be there for them. Maybe they’re not, they’re not 100% sure. They just don’t see how it’s feasible. Hell, we’ve got Andrew Yang out there too, by the way, pushing for universal basic income here in the United States, but with all these plans and and they are some really great plans here. There is one issue that Democrats absolutely need to put front and center and that issue is healthcare. That’s it. And I’m not even saying that that is the most important issue. I’m saying that’s the one that Democrats have to put at the front because I do believe that healthcare is one of the most important issues. But we also need a candidate that is going to be stronger than acid with regards to combating climate change and protecting the environment. That to me is absolutely top of the list with healthcare coming in at not even number two, probably one and a half. It’s so close to climate change, but without fixing climate change, literally nothing else will matter in the future. So anyway, the reason I say that we have to put healthcare over climate change in talks is because that is actually what the public wants by a 17 point margin. People say that Donald Trump’s stance on healthcare makes them not want to vote for him. In 2020 40% of people compared to 23% of people say that, hell no, I’m not voting for this guy because he’s awful on healthcare.
There’s your winning issue, democrats, healthcare. Now that doesn’t mean that you just get to go out there and talk about how Donald Trump sucks on healthcare. That’s not good enough either. What you have to do is go out there and say, listen, healthcare in this country is awful. The private sector, the hospitals, big Pharma Insurance Companies, we’ve given them decades to fix the problem. They have failed, they failed, and we’re private. Industry fails. The government always steps in. We did it when the big banks failed, gave him a couple trillion dollars. We did it when the auto industry failed. We did it when the farming industry failed because of Trump’s trade wars. That wasn’t their fault, but we still help them and now the healthcare industry has failed the American public, but we give the health care industry bailout. We should give the American public a bailout. It’s time to stop rewarding companies and industries and sectors that fail.

How Amazon Could Disrupt Health Care

Amazon has been described has the “everything store, ” but it’s missing one major category – prescription medicines. That might soon change, in the wake of Amazon’s roughly $1 billion acquisition of PillPack, an internet pharmacy.

Health experts told CNBC that it’s only a mater of time before Amazon starts selling prescription drugs on its online marketplace, and that it’s assembling a team to do just that. For Amazon, pharmacy represents a multibillion market opportunity, but it’s also highly complicated and will involve battling with some entrenched competition that has a vested interest in keeping drug prices high.

But Amazon, with its scale, leverage, and supply chain expertise, could be the company to do it, the experts said.

People buying medical supplies on Amazon, such as glucometers and cold medicine, can now use their flexible savings accounts or health savings accounts to get discounts.

These programs, often referred to as an HSA or FSA, allow people with health insurance to set aside a portion of their salary before taxes to cover medical expenses that would have been paid for out-of-pocket, such as prescription medicines and medical supplies.

In a statement to CNBC, Amazon said it’s “excited to announce” the feature, which allows buyers to use their HSA or FSA debit cards towards eligible purchases.

“Customers now have the flexibility to use FSA/HSA cards on a wide range of eligible over-the-counter purchases, eliminating the need to pay out-of-pocket or submit receipts for reimbursement,” the Amazon spokesperson said.

Amazon started rolling out the offering to customers earlier this month, which was spotted by a few outlets and blogs.

In recent years, Amazon has started adding more health and wellness products, including medical devices and over-the-counter medicines.

Amazon’s rival Walmart, which currently offers pharmacy services, also has a storefront for HSA and FSA products.

The company also acquired an internet pharmacy company, PillPack, in the summer of 2018, signaling an interest in adding prescription medicines to its marketplace. It now has a leader for that pharmacy business, a veteran who helped build Amazon’s Kindle self-publishing platform. But PillPack, which primarily serves older customers who take multiple medications, hasn’t been fully integrated into Amazon and still operates independently.

Prescription drugs is a notoriously challenging product to offer, given the complex web of intermediaries that sit between the drug manufacturer and the pharmacy. To sell prescription medicines, Amazon will need to work with middlemen, known as pharmacy benefits managers, in order to take a customer’s insurance.

Some health experts suggest that the move into adding HSA and FSA cards is a smart method for Amazon to learn more about people’s spending on health.

“It’s a back end way for Amazon to learn about consumer purchasing behavior of health care products and services, as it moves more deeply into the space,” said Michael Yang, a health-tech investor with Omers Ventures.

Others believe that Amazon’s new storefront could be a starting point for the company to extend into pharmacy and employer benefits.

If Amazon had a pharmacy offering, “consumers with high deductible plans and health savings accounts may be more than willing to pay cash for prescriptions using these accounts,” said Stephen Buck, a health entrepreneur who previously worked at McKesson, a major drug distributor.

Some in the pharmacy world have speculated that Amazon will get into the space by initially focusing this segment of consumers that typically pays cash for their prescription medicine. That’s about 6 percent of the U.S. population, which is a chunk of the $450 billion pharmacy market. If it did that, those people might choose to use their health and flexible savings accounts.
