… so fix what needs to be fixed.
An early read by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a bipartisan nonprofit policy organization, says Trump’s plan would both strip 21 million currently insured folks of their health coverage, and add to the deficit.
The group said its analysis indicates Trump’s strategy would “significantly reduce coverage” by creating a system in which coverage became available for 1.1 million Americans, but would not be there for the 21 million who would be directly affected by his repeal of the PPACA.

No alternative yet presented (by Republicans) as a replacement for ACA is practical and all generally reduce the number of insured Americans while doing nothing to manage health care costs. And that’s the truth.
The concepts of market forces, consumer cost driven decision making and competition among insurers is bogus when it comes to health care. And that too is the truth. Hell, we don’t even think of health insurance as true insurance. We can’t see any health care expense as affordable. We don’t want to spend one penny on health care … and that is really the truth.
The Medicare-for-all approach has its own problems of impracticability and costs.
