President Obama made many promises to the American people regarding health care reform - but the Affordable Care Act was destined to fail. Why? Lanhee Chen of the Hoover Institute explains why government-run health care is not the answer.

I disagree with this. Having healthcare for all will solve so many issues. 1. People wont go bankrupt in an emergency. 2. Prices will go down, now that companies will have to compete to sell their products to the government. 3. It will weed out loads of corruption in the healthcare industry. Ex. Many hospitals ignored 15 minute tests to prove if a patient has covid and instead sent it to the lab, because they make more money that way. Private healthcare companies are corrupt. And people are eating it up.

What people don’t understand is that ACA, as initially designed, was never implemented. What you have now is a ghost of ACA with many patches here and there...ACA is not perfect, far from it, but the alternatives are worse. Critics of ACA are right but they never came with a better system, reason Republicans never offered a concrete health care system plan. There is none. Pragmatically, like it or not, most Americans approve ACA when you ask for what they want without labeling ‘ACA’. In ACA, you pay for your health care, like it or not. In others, you pay for others without knowing it. At the end, you will pay for your health care. Nothing is free in life. The solution is not a single payer system...we need competition. However, the government can offer a low cost health care plan for the very basic that pays for itself, like an insurance company, which was actually the initial design of ACA - but the budget would come from those who are in the system and not from those who opted out, who also have the option for private insurance. Ironically, the blueprint of ACA came from the very Republicans who criticize it and implemented by Mitt Romney in MA. I am a centrist but any criticism should also be accompanied with concrete better solutions. It is easy to criticize but hard to offer better plans. Also, ACA and Bernie Sanders’ crazy ideas are two different beasts. It is misleading to lump them together.

Many people not only from Texas but also from Pennsylvania (the Amish) come to the US- Mexico border to get quality healthcare at a fairer price than the US. There's even an American owned hospital across the border called Star Medica that caters to Americans. So yes, you can get quality private healthcare in Mexico. It's a huge cottage industry in mexican border towns along with dental and pharmacies.

Why Trump and the Republicans cannot and did not get rid of Obamacare when they could of at the beginning of Trump's first term? The Republicans had the majority of both houses in congress at that time so they could of scrapped Obamacare and the Democrats cannot do anything to stop it.

The greater problem that I see is the HIGH cost of medical care. In relative to other countries, out of pocket costs for the in U.S. costs exponentially more than in other countries for the same procedures and/or medications. Why is that? Under the present system, Instead of government bureaucrats in a single payer system deciding who gets what the corporate bureaucrats in the insurance companies are already doing that. So what is the difference? So that needs to be talked about too. This is what makes socialism look attractive in the eyes of many.

I finally figure out how the figures come up from the 8962 Form of the 1040. They come up from the figures on the 1095A sent to you by Anthem. Then you need to tell the insurance like Cover California, on how much you will be making in the current year but if you don't your tax will not be the difference in premiums that Covered CA charges vs the premiums you paid when your gross income was increasing- this was based on the tables provided or 'applicable figures" on line 7. It will be the amount of benefits like one of my clients who made 94k from the previous year to 140k for the current year. They didn't tell Covered CA, that their income increased, so they had to pay the benefits between the 94k premiums and the 140k premiums- about 32K in taxes for the year. Also in that 8962, the poverty line is 20780

I live in Canada and know first hand how messed up this is. My family lives in Asia where they have a two pronged healthcare system private and public. That reduces the cost of healthcare overall. Last year I when I was in Asia, I found out I had to get a test done. There, the wait was 1 week. I decided to do it back in Canada to save money. It took SIX MONTHS!! And that was on top of the fact that my doctor was so incompetent in referrals that my case was lost in the paperwork. Because of that I was moved to the top of the list. It would have probably taken 8 months to a year. My elderly great aunt jokes all the time that there is no use for a Canadian doctor because either you die or live long enough to get cured of the illness by yourself. Canada doesn't have free healthcare. Our taxes are through the roof. I would say that most Americans (except for the very poor) complain too much for healthcare because they didn't save for a rainy day. Here in Canada the difference is that the government forces us to save for that rainy day. As a centrist, I believe that American healthcare is not without it's issues. There are for profit hospitals that charge an arm and a leg for simple procedures. That practice needs to stop!

I think something that would be beneficial is healthcare not being a necessity. Being able to pay off medical bills by one’s own wallet. It’s known that hospitals up charge everything astronomically. Health care shouldn’t be required to live, it should be a luxury used for those of us who are less fortunate to have medical issues. Yet right now we have it more as a safety net, for if we get injured or something happen, we would be covered. It’s marketing via fear of the unknown, profiting off high cost on cheap products, and rifling people into debt.

I'm from the UK and a lot of that is false about our healthcare. Plain and simple. The *ONLY* thing that was true was the wait times. Wait times are long, but _again_ it's called triage. Your twisted ankle can wait. Another thing, we actually pay a crap ton in "national insurance", so no, it still isn't free. I'm a young healthy male with no history of illness and no family illness but I have to pay almost 3K a year. Which when you factor in average wage etc. it's about the same in the US (if not more). So what's my point? My point is that yes, our healthcare isn't "as good" as the healthcare in the US, but everybody has a right to care without a bill at the end of it. Whether you pay your NI or not. People who cannot afford our "insurance" aren't kicked out to the street, they're treated. Hey, and this isn't even mentioning we have private healthcare over here too. There are caveats to "free" healthcare, but poor people wont die because they can't afford it.

Remember one thing about the Left: they believe there's a huge pot of gold under the Capitol (it's really in NYC) that should just be doled out in benefits. Thus, everything should be free (sic). That's why when they say this Senator 'didn't get anything done' they don't mean cutting the deficit, or bringing our people home. No, they just mean: where are the spoils of war (from DC)...

I took a look at the winners of nobel prizes in medicine in the last 10 years. Yes, there are several american winners, but the vast majority of those winners are from universities, not private institutes. This video is the classic "sure what you propose might sound good, but let's *really* focus on the negatives so that I don't have a reason to change, because not changing benefits me" and a good chunk of it isn't even true.

I have been using the NHS and I never paid for private health here after 15 years living here. I have had some more expensive exams recently and it all went fine and I have had good treatment. Prescription is subsidised and they are capped to less than £10. It is not perfect, but it is good overall. I am originally from Brazil and I had to pay for private healthcare they were very expensive, especially if you were older and they didn’t cover pre-existing conditions. To have access to the best hospitals you had to pay a lot of money monthly. US system? Thanks, but no, thanks!

I live in the UK. My mother in law has diabetes and she gets regular treatments, checkups, tests etc all free of costs. And her medication is also heavily subsidised. She used ambulance service couple of times and once a chopper was sent for her but as her condition was not as serious as we initially thought, they called it off and took her to ER using the ambulance instead. She calls up doc almost everyweek and visits doctors whenever she feels like. Because of this, sometimes i wish NHS wasn’t free just so i didn’t have to deal with this as often lol. I absolutely Don't understand how can you say Brits have a bellow-per health care system compared to Americans. This is just silly.

I called a couple of years ago to get the Obama insurance. I work a seasonal job so I didn’t have a steady check. They quoted me $62.00 dollars a month but that was not in my budget. The rep said that I would qualify for the free premium. I said sounds good. Then I asked what the deductible was..... wait for it.... $6,000.00. Now if I didn’t have the $62.00 for the premium, where in hell would I get $6,000.00. Cheaper to pay cash for office visits. But when it comes to major medical one is screwed.!!! My cardiologist recently told me that fewer and fewer doctors and hospitals are taking it. Cost is going up and coverage is going down. Obama’s little plan to get us into a socialized country. Biden, Hillary, Pelosi is just waiting to finish Obama’s plan.
