Nebraska leads the way on healthcare

There isn’t much to get excited about when it comes to healthcare these days. Obamacare has failed to deliver the affordable outcomes it promised in just about every way imaginable. The broken promise which troubles me most is President Obama’s famous line, “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it,” because this couldn’t have been any further from the truth.

Democratic presidential hopefuls have now completely abandoned this charade as well as Obamacare’s failing individual marketplaces and moved straight to “Medicare for all,” which is a term for wholly government-run healthcare. Such socialized healthcare schemes risk putting taxpayers on the hookfor over $30 trillion in just the first 10 years and, in other countries, have led to decreases in overall quality, including rationing of care, long wait times, and little incentive for innovation or breakthroughs in new treatments.
