Nothing: Trump won't be able to change it
Trump and the republicans will eliminate it
It will get changes made but remain
He'll shoot for Universal Health Care at the horror of the republicans

Going after universal health care would be at the horror of both Republicans and Democrats, as it flies in the face of both their narratives yet it's something at least half the country would ardently support, if they were honest with themselves.
Pre-existing conditions, thats where I disagree, he wont do anything about that part. Insurance companies dont want that, especially if there is no mandate to maintain coverage at all times. OR if its required to cover pre-existing conditions, they will be able to charge such a prohibitive cost that its the same as not accepting them. They can say sure you have cancer, we accept you BUT the cost is 15 grand per month with a 5 grand deductible.
From a business stand point, covering pre-existing conditions would be nuts.....either they will spread that cost to everyone OR they will have to turn away people with pre-existing conditions.
I agree that the public would back it, its the corrupt govt who stands in the way protecting profits for private industries.
If the US were to go with a single pay/universal care tax funded system, it would make sense and be easier to now raise a min wage since employers would no longer be paying for coverage at all...even half the amount they have been paying out for insurance could now be actual cash pay (taxable and spendable on other goods and services). So the businesses dont see costs go up to pay better, they see their costs CUT even while paying employees MORE. Employees gain more pay in their checks and still have health care coverage so the employee loses nothing.
People in the health insurance industry and pharma lose jobs and money, there is also a hit somewhere and thats where it would be. I think its an acceptable hit and I certainly dont think those employees should be placed over the welfare of the entire nation.
How can that be addressed? Do you have any ideas on that part? I cant think of any way..and I am trying!
