Desired Health Care Differs for Republicans and Democrats
Health care is notorious for being politicized, and election season turns up the heat on issues that affect the insured and the uninsured alike. While many citizens advocate for a more universal health care system, others feel strongly that a single-payer system, or one that further meshes health care with the government, would only increase the chaos and they would like health care to be further privatized. This year’s candidates have very different plans for health care as the country moves forward into 2021.
Trump’s Plan for Health Care
President Trump tends to favor the traditional Republican positions on health care including patients’ choice of doctor and limited governmental involvement when it comes to medical care. He, like other Republicans, does not approve of a universal system and wants to limit spending on prescription drugs.
Biden’s Plan for Health Care
It may not surprise voters to learn that Biden, as a Democrat, favors the government’s involvement in health care more so that President Trump does. Biden believes that the Trump administration has not done enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and he is concerned that many Americans will lose their coverage without certain protections.
