“Any health care reform legislation that comes to my desk from Congress must protect the preexisting conditions or I will not sign it,” Trump
Meanwhile, Trump allies are pushing back, contending that the radical left’s vision for health care in America is the true threat, particularly to those with pre-existing conditions.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris both support healthcare for illegal aliens. Harris co-sponsored Bernie Sanders’ $32 trillion socialized medicine plan to turn hospitals into DMVs and put bureaucrats in charge of Americans’ health decisions,” Liz Harrington, Republican National Committee national spokesperson, said in a release.
“The ‘public option’ is no better. Just like Joe Biden himself, it’s a Trojan Horse to usher in the left’s radical agenda,” she continued. “In this case, a single-payer system that would kill private care — which over 180 million Americans depend on.”
Harrington pointed to the failures of Obamacare, including the spike in premiums, health care costs, and “sky-high deductibles.”
Ultimately, Harrington said, nothing would jeopardize the most vulnerable more than government-run health care, which she says Democrats seek to usher in.
While Joe Biden has refrained from committing to a full single-payer health care system — opting instead to focus on his commitment to strengthening Obamacare — his running mate
co-sponsored Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) Medicare for All Act of 2019.
“Health care should be a right for everyone in this country, not a privilege for the few,” Harris said in a statement at the time. No family should be forced to go into debt to pay for the medical treatment of a loved one or the prescription drugs they need to stay healthy.”
“Medicare is the most popular health plan in the country because it works,” she added. “Medicare for All finally makes sure every American has affordable, comprehensive health care.”
In recent months, Democrats have been using the Chinese coronavirus to not only advance mass vote-by-mail but a single-payer healthcare system, which
could cost over $60 trillion over the next decade alone.
“This is a high-stakes time, because of the pandemic. But this is also a really high-stakes election. And every form of health care should continue to be available, including reproductive health care for every woman in this country,” failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
said in April.
“And then it needs to be part of a much larger system that eventually — and quickly, I hope — gets us to universal health care,” she added as Biden nodded along.
