C-SPAN: Health Care and Campaign 2018

This weekend, I appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal alongside Families USA’s Frederick Isasi to discuss “the role of health care in the 2018 mid‐​term elections.” Specific topics were covered include Cato’s latest health care book, Overcharged: Why Americans Pay Too Much For Health Care; the recent vote by Senate Democrats that would have thrown patients with preexisting conditions out of their health plans and left them with no coverage; how ObamaCare’s preexisting‐​conditions provisions are unpopular and reduce quality; how markets make access more secure for the sick than employer‐​sponsored plans; the benefits and costs of short‐​term plans; the Veterans Health Administration; the single‐​payer two‐​step; and how ObamaCare supporters want to take away your freedom to choose your health benefits. 

Prepare yourself for the greatest 55 minutes and 30 seconds of your life.
