Many are wondering what Trump will do after he repeals the Affordable Care Act. Will he provide a suitable replacement? Will America’s healthcare system become completely privatized?
Dr. Kevin Campbell will be on Bold TV with Carrie and Clay tomorrow discussing this issue and his latest Op Ed piece published yesterday on the Fox News Opinion Page.
According to Dr. Campbell, Trump has made it very clear that he intends to dismantle ObamaCare. However, Trump has hinted at keeping certain provisions of the ACA in place so it’s unclear how this will affect American’s insurance.
Democrats have long used the defense of Medicare as a campaign centerpiece. Campbell argues in his opinion piece that Medicare is “broken” and must be reformed in order to remain sustainable in a way that actually serves patients.
“Medicare is broken—Congress must address it early in the session—we can no longer afford to stick our heads in the ground and allow Democrats to use the ‘saving Medicare’ mantra as a rallying cry for every single election cycle.”
This week, Trump appointed Representative Tim Price to head the Health and Human Services, an outspoken critic of Obamacare for the past six years. This communicates to many Americans that Trump will follow through with his plans to repeal, but it is still unknown if a different healthcare system will have positive or negative change –or have any change at all.
Dr. Campbell’s experience as a physician gives him insight and a hands-on perspective regarding this topic.
“To that end I say to Congress—both Democrat and Republican– lets fix a broken system and allow doctors to do their jobs—heal the sick.”
