One of the most perplexing aspects about debating the left is their lack of understanding that there is an entire world that exists without government. No more is this disparity more on display than in the health care debate.
Democratic lawmakers such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi love to speak about the Affordable Care Act as if they’re speaking about America’s health care industry as a whole. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact of the matter is that America’s health care industry was not only more productive at delivering innovations without Obamacare, it was by and large cheaper to access. Since the Democrats passed Obamacare into Law in 2010, premiums have skyrocketed, and scores of millennials have opted to simply pay the penalty instead of participate in the program.
And while it’s been said again and again by critics, it’s worth repeating that former President Obama’s promise that everyone would be able to keep their existing plans turned out to be blatantly untrue.
So no – repealing Obamacare doesn’t send every hospital and medical clinic back into the Stone Age. Stripping away needless regulations will actually stimulate competition within the industry, bringing prices for goods and services down in the process.
