IS A HEALTHCARE SOLUTION WITHIN REACH?
Healthcare impacts every one of us, our businesses, and the nation, and you better believe it’s going to be a hot topic in the 2020 presidential election.
So, why has healthcare become so political? Can’t we just get the government out of healthcare? Can’t the government just give us all free healthcare? Everyone has an opinion on the government’s role in healthcare, and I’m about to tackle them all!
Medicare for all? I have it covered. Price discrimination? You better believe it’s in the book. The costs of pharmaceuticals across the borders? Also, in the book. If a topic is in the news or a candidate is talking about it, you can bet I have it covered.
Healthcare “news” is often angry, partisan, or protective of status quo. This book is none of these. My end goal with this book is to educate voters and positively influence the debate around our very real cost, complexity, and coverage issues.
So, do I believe a healthcare solution is within reach? Yes! But, we must first understand before we can intelligently debate.
