Obamacare Repeal Alone Can’t Fix America’s Busted Healthcare System, by Duane Norman

The problems of the American medical system, and the combination of government and insurance which pays for so much of it, go far beyond Obamacare. From Duane Norman at Free Market Shooter, fmshooter.com:

Obamacare “repeal and/or replace” has been the order of news lately; first, Republican Senators defeated President Trump’s healthcare bill, then they defeated Senator Mitch McConnell’s “repeal-in-two-years” alternative, leaving Americans stuck with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.  Needless to say, President Trump was less than pleased with this recent development:

A clearly frustrated President Trump lambasted GOP senators at The White House this morning demanding that they cancel their August recess and not leave town until acting to repeal ObamaCare.

“We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace, and we shouldn’t leave town until this is complete — until this bill is on my desk,” the president told senators at the beginning of a lunch meeting at the White House.

“Any senator who votes against debate says you are fine with Obamacare,” Trump said.

Trump didn’t build our broken healthcare system, so if Republicans are unable and/or unwilling to pass a bill, he’s right not to “own” out of control healthcare costs

…and though the “repeal and replace” option was fraught with problems, and an outright repeal of Obamacare would have been the preferred outcome, it’s not a silver bullet that will fix what ails the US healthcare system.  Yes, Obamacare took a bad system and made it worse, but the law didn’t change the core principles defining insurer-provided healthcare, medicare, medicaid, and out-of-control doctor’s bills.
