Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price made a huge promise to all Americans on Sunday when he promised that they wouldn’t lose their healthcare coverage.
Price appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Jake Tapper.
“Absolutely not,” he replied when host Jake Tapper asked him whether millions of Americans would be cut from Medicaid, as has been predicted by liberals.
“And we believe strongly that the Medicaid population will be cared for in a better way under our program, because it will be more responsive to them,” Price added. “These decisions will be made closer to them.”
“(W)hat we’re fashioning is a system that would allow the states to tailor their Medicaid program to (the disabled, the elderly, healthy moms and kids, etc.), thereby saving money, yes, but also making it so that they have a higher level of care, higher quality of care than they currently do,” Price said Sunday.
“Now, imagine a system that allowed greater flexibility, so that more resources could be put to the seniors and the disabled, and appropriate resources could be put to the healthy moms and kids in a Medicaid system,” Price concluded. “That is a system that, again, works better for patients than it does for government or insurance companies.”
It is nice to finally have real leadership in our government, unlike the terrible leadership of former President Barack Obama and his cabinet of bozos.
