Is there anybody more "all over the map" on healthcare than Donald Trump?...

If you would like to be added to the
Many do make too much due to fraud and waste in the healthcare system driving up the costs. The politicians are ok with this because it makes the insurance companies and bankers more money. That’s why politicians like Cruz and Pelosi have done nothing to fix the system.
Says the guy who brags about being worth billions.
Bit by bit Trump reveals who he is. He’s said he is for the obamacare mandate and that he would include Rats in his cabinet. Sure sounds like a Rat in Pub clothing.
Trump is all over the map, period.
The election is FAR too important to not carefully analyse the candidates and choose the best instead of leaving it up to emotion.
âJust look at your doctorâs bills. I mean you look at the doctorâs billsâ¦you look at what some of these doctors do and the money that they make and you go to other countries and you see what they make and itâs a whole different world. And there are things that you can do to give unbelievable healthcare at a lesser cost â not only to the government, but to the people and a much better healthcare system and there are alot of things and itâs a very complex subject unfortunately but there are many many things that could make it much better.â
BTW, this comment was in the context of fraud and abuse. That pesky thing, context.
Yep I would say, looking at my own Dr, they make a lot more money than most of us do...at least the government hasn't ‘farmed’ them out to foreign countries yet...
Did you bother watching the entire video? Trump said he could help keep costs down by fighting fraud and abuse, and then Letterman challenged him to show there is fraud and abuse. Trump’s response was to that.
Are you an agent-provocateur for the establishment cabal, or do you think that Ted Cruz is Yah’s dedicated servant to restore Christian dominance in America, or are you just so blind you can not see what is going on in America, today?
“Real estate developers make too much money” is just as valid, and equally wrong.
Simple liberal class warfare...
I worked for an agency whose clients were pharmaceutical companies. Part of my job was setting up meetings and events for physicians to listen to a presentation by another physician about a specific dug or product these Rx companies were selling. These doctors who were presenting would make HUGE $$$ as speakers. Anywhere between $1K-$2K per meeting. In addition to reimbursement for meals, travel, etc. Some might do 2-3 per day over a several day span.
Frumpy is Ted turner.
Poor Doctors barely able to make it...
So I only get those three choices, huh?...lol!
Watch the video. Trump pointed to some of the stuff doctors bill for as proof there is fraud and abuse in the system. He never said they make too much money.
