HEALTHCARE

Claim: “Democrats like to squawk a lot about President Trump, Republicans, and healthcare, but the truth is, the 2020 Democrats are the ones who want to strip you of your private, employer-provided health insurance!”

As Trump acknowledges, there are a wide variety of healthcare proposals amongst the 2020 democratic candidates, and so we will decline to speak on any plan specifically. But on the subject of healthcare, we would be remiss not to point out that Trump came into office with a promise on which he failed to deliver: improvement of the healthcare system. He failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act in 2017 but has continued to try to tear it apart through other mechanisms, turning most recently to the courts. If the administration is successful in these attempts, roughly 21 million Americans are expected to lose health insurance.
