Speaking of big lies, here is Donald Trump two weeks ago talking to Anderson Cooper about his health care plan:
COOPER: Will people with pre-existing conditions be able to get insurance?
And here is Trump’s health care plan, released today:
The phrase “pre-existing conditions” appears nowhere. It’s just the usual mish-mash of Republican claptrap, including state lines, tax deductions, HSAs, “price transparency,” and block-granting Medicaid. Plus there’s one liberal idea just to keep everyone on their toes: allowing importation of pharmaceuticals. Why? “Though the pharmaceutical industry is in the private sector,” Trump says, “drug companies provide a public service.” I’m not sure even Bernie Sanders would have the nerve to say this.
