Status Quo Joe’s Healthcare Hail Mary

This clip is brought to you in partnership with Squarespace. For websites made easy at 10% off, head to https://Squarespace.com/TYT

Joe Biden is not winning over the voters. Ana Kasparian, David Dayen, and Adrienne Lawrence, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Read more here:
https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/15/politics/joe-biden-health-care-plan-obamacare-public-option/index.html

“Joe Biden is proposing massive new subsidies to make health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges cheaper — as well as a new “public option” that would allow people to buy into a program his campaign says would be similar to Medicare.

The former vice president unveiled his health care plan Monday morning amid an escalating fight with his 2020 Democratic presidential foes as some more liberal candidates advocate enrolling all Americans in a national health plan, all but eliminating private health insurance.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is set to deliver a speech making his case for “Medicare for All” on Wednesday, according to his campaign. And California Sen. Kamala Harris, who has similarly backed a single-payer, government-run health program, teased the upcoming rollout of her plan in front of a crowd in New Hampshire on Sunday, too.
Biden, meanwhile, is pushing for a more moderate approach, built on former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.”

Why the cost of healthcare varies so much | ABC News

Depending on where you live, your treatment could be free or cost hundreds of dollars.

Different countries choose to approach health care in different ways. But one thing a lot of them have in common is that they provide universal coverage. That means all their citizens have access to healthcare.

Should countries be spending more to help the poor access healthcare? The US spends the most on healthcare as a share of the economy and per capita, but it’s ranked low on both life expectancy and infant mortality rates. The private sector is what drives up costs in the US, because the country doesn’t have universal health coverage.

Countries like Cuba and the UK spend less on healthcare as part of the economy, and they also have relatively better outcomes. But the UK also controls access to drugs in the country, which means certain treatments aren’t available because they haven’t been deemed cost-effective.
