30. Digging Into My Modest Election-Year Proposal For Healthcare Reform: Part 3 — Driving To Affordable Universal Access

About The Episode:

On this episode, Marc concludes his deep dive into healthcare reform with affordable universal access.  Marc proposes that America keep its employer-based healthcare system but create one single social safety net for those disenfranchised from employer-sponsored coverage. 

Key Takeaways: 

Teddy Roosevelt famously endorsed affordable universal access in his 1912 presidential race.

America should adopt a private affordable universal access system as is in place in other developed nations.

America should keep its employer-sponsored coverage foundation.  It is popular and ripping it apart would be disruptive.

America should adopt one social-safety net healthcare problem for all others.

America should keep most of the Affordable Care act protections.

Having one social safety net would save tremendously on administration.

Affordable universal access would also help implement price reform and a shift to care management.

You should see some aspects of RomneyCare, HillaryCare, and Obamacare in my proposal.

But it looks most like a proposal by President Richard Nixon back in the early 1970s. You could say I cribbed a bit from Nixon here.

If two Republican presidents can endorse affordable universal access, here is hoping my GOP party of today will see the light.
