Among the issues candidates will debate Tuesday night is health care – an important, yet confusing, topic for viewers. An expert simplifies, explaining where and what the candidates stand for.
The US has been trying to reform its complicated health care system since 1993. In 2020, it continues to be one of the biggest and most complicated issues of the presidential campaign.
Presidential candidates have been proposing plans to expand health coverage, lower prescription drug costs and make hospital bills more transparent. But few get to the real problem. Here's why.
Many Western, industrialized nations provide health insurance. The US has repeatedly balked at universal coverage. So what kind of system are we left with? A very unpopular one.
Arguments about the AHCA showed deep disagreement on health care coverage. Could this move us toward universal coverage, which some say could be simpler? Don't hold your breath.
