Trump Pledges to Transform American Health Insurance



farmer accountable and I must say big farm has also been working with us to try and get prices down and if we had support with the Democrats I must say we could get it down even more we've reduced prices now by a quite a bit and this year is the first year Alex Acosta right in 54 years 53 years that drug prices have come down and I want to congratulate you and all the people that have worked so hard with you that's really an incredible first year and we could get him down a lot more if we had a little support in Congress and I think we'll get that support I think that has to be that has to be a joint if that's not if that's not going to be bilateral we're gonna get that done and I think we're gonna get it done quickly we're gonna get a lot of support I've spoken to Democrats and they are in support of it we have to see if we can actually get them to raise their hand if they do that we're gonna see some tremendous cuts in drug prices so thank you very much Alex we've asked Congress to support a new research initiative to find a breakthrough cure for childhood cancers and we've begun a public health campaign to eradicate AIDS in America once and for all and that's really taking place like nobody would believe we're looking at a 10-year plan and at the end of ten years were going to be in very good shape who would have thought that was possible even just a short time ago and we're making dramatic strides in combating the opioid epidemic we have it down by a period of almost a number of almost seventeen percent this year and when I heard it I thought they made a mistake I said you are not real that's not a real number and it is very much a real number so Kellyanne and all of the people that have worked in worked on that that's a tremendous achievement and we've worked with the medical profession and with doctors and with everybody and to think that it's 17 percent in one year that's a that's a tremendous achievement thank you very much and we're now working with Congress to pass legislation that ends surprised medical building and we're going to have another big announcement in two weeks unrelated but something that's going to have a profound effect on the things that we're talking about and have been talking about over the last two and a half years it's gonna be something really incredible that'll take place over the next two weeks that'll be a very big announcement nobody knows what it is it's gonna be a big surprise but it's gonna be a very pleasant one no American should be blindsided by bills for medical services they never agreed to in advance we're promoting price transparency to force competition and drive down cost and that's what's happening and that's one of the reasons we're getting the drug prices stopping from those tremendous increases that have taken effect for so many years for so many decades they've been going only in one direction up and now we have them breaking even and going down we're defending Medicare and Social Security for our great seniors were eliminated and we have eliminated Obama cares deeply unpopular individual mandate penalty and you know how bad that was think of it you paid a tremendous amount of money for the privilege of paying so that you don't have to pay for bad insurance okay how bad does that get that's got to be a first nobody's ever heard of that one but we eliminated it it's gone so you're saving a lot of money and it's a terrific thing and we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions always we're always going to protect the patient's pre-existing conditions and today I'm pleased to announce another groundbreaking action we are dramatically increasing the ability of Americans to access more affordable health insurance through options and through their employers we're doing so by expanding health reimbursement arrangements or HRAs as they are commonly known HRAs will allow American workers to shop for the plan that's right for them and their family and have their employer cover the cost and it's a reasonable cost and people are going to be getting tremendous benefits this will be possible because HR a's will now receive the same tax treatment that other employer provided health plans have always enjoyed there was a lot of restrictions and it was impossible until now this is something that it's time has come it's popular it's really really been a success and I think this is going to be for many people this will be the way of the future the previous administration imposed crushing fines and other penalties on HRAs to prevent employees from selecting the plan of their choice it was impossible with today's action we are eliminating all of those restrictions and thanks to the changes we're making an estimated 11 million Americans will now choose their own plans with the help of the HRAs this will increase the size that is a very big deal this will increase the size of individual market by at least 50% improving choice promoting competition and lowering costs for the American people HRAs provide another important option to help even more employers offer great health insurance and the benefits to the American workers will be incredible they will be especially useful for small employers an estimated 90 percent of the businesses that will take advantage of HRAs have fewer than 20 employees this announcement is a monumental victory for small businesses for their workers and previously uninsured Americans who will now have access to high-quality health plans of their choice with us today is one of our nation's wonderful small business owners Tony Conkel from Maryland and I will say Tom you come up where is Tom are you up here someplace Tom I have not met Tom well your handsome guy come on up here tom Kunkel would you say a few words and let him know what's just happened to you please first of all I'd like to say happy birthday to the president thank you a lot of people from my office are also I'm three years ago I actually spoke to the US Senate small business and entrepreneurship committee about reinstating the health reimbursement benefit program that had existed previously this was after the Obama administration had made it illegal for our business to help employees but there are health insurance cost at the time we have been helping our employees some who have had very serious three years many about reinstating health ravers and the president and the administration for supporting this new measure and all of his pro small business policies we very much appreciated the small business community so this new role would really allow small businesses to offer a better conditions including cancer and after the bottle rolling and options for them and also for employers so again I thank you very much mr. president also we're joined right now Andrea burns a small business owner from Pennsylvania please come up Andrea please [Applause] hello my name is Andrea burns and I'm a director at Richard s burns & Company a family owned and operated construction waste material recovery and processing facility in Philadelphia we employ approximately 100 people and right now my brother and I Alan choose the healthcare plan for all of those employees they don't have the opportunity to choose the provider the coverage or the premium this plan HR aise would allow us to give them the opportunity to choose the plan that's best for them use it well Andrea thank you well thank you very much it's gonna be a great there'll be a great difference I've repeatedly called on Congress to work with us to bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs so all happening it said more than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed up for the bernie sanders massive government takeover of health care that's gonna hurt a lot of people it's gonna hurt our country socialist health care would crush American workers with higher taxes long wait times and far worse care their plan would eliminate Medicare as we know it and terminate the private health insurance of 180 million Americans and even more than that now on my watch we will never let that happen we will never be a socialist country we have to reject the socialist model that rations care restricts access Slash's quality enforces patience unto endless wait lists instead we believe in freedom we believe in choice we believe in the highest standard of care in the world anywhere in the world and we believe that American families must always have the right and the power to choose the very best treatments plans doctors for themselves and for their loved ones they need that freedom they have to have that freedom and that's exactly what today's action is all about we're putting the people back in charge with more choice for better care at a far lower cost and other people will not be paying for their health care we won't be raising taxes we won't be taxing you into oblivion we won't be raising the tax rates to 90 percent I've heard 90% the only problem with that one it doesn't come even close to taking care of the situation so that means you have to go a lot higher than 90 percent I don't think that's gonna work too well in this country we've lowered taxes we want to keep them down that's very important and we will not rest until Americans have the health care system they need and deserve the system that finally puts American patients first I want to thank everybody for being here it's a very important day a very special day god bless you and God bless america thank you all very much [Applause] [Applause] Sauer is gonna be the fresh secretary right okay so congratulations I'm the first working mother to ever hold this job to be empowered to be the spokesperson for the United States I think that as a kid and certainly as a parent there is nothing that could be more terrifying for a kid to go to school and not feel safe so I'm sorry that you feel that way I think that's a ridiculous and outrageous claim and doesn't dignify our response from this podium I'm not finished there's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people

  4. He is showing his "tell" for lying . . . his lips are moving.

  5. THE Government is no longer working for the people, the people are only working for the governments ideologies & not realities.
    im having a very hard time wrapping my head around all the deceatful & crookedness in all our gaqua´overnment agencies for. last 30-50 years orveven longer… earth is truely the devils domain.

  6. We got 2 percent tax break and fucked us on the deduction part fuck you president .

  7. He said you will choose to pay before you get the service right at the beginning of his speech . If you missed that then all sounds good . This will basically give business the right to discriminate on hiring people . If your old or you have a condition your a liability . You'll have options which you possibly will not afford

  8. Maybe if SocSec-Medicare actually hired DOCTORS and not accountant/gatekeepers similar to kaiser permanent horseshit,then the system would get better. My family was kaiser for many years,but now it's a 4rd world shithole I suffered thru the final time they tried to kill me by ignoring my allergies list THEY MADE UP !!!

  9. The New NAFTA deal contains protections for big pharma. Always the opposite of the truth.

  10. What drugs are those,all 3 meds I take went up,so did my insurance premiums.

  11. If Trump is working with big pharma the prices will be unbelievable. Drug prices are reaching new highs, the liar in chief also has a hilarious explanation of tariffs for those who have asmartphone but don't have sense enough to use them. Trump already said/promised all this before the 2018 elections. Don't believe a single word this clown says, it's all lies.

  12. Sad low quality video

  13. Oh fuck you. Republicans are the assholes who made cuts to women's reproductive rights

  14. Theres no thing as childhood cancers. But there's cancers

  15. LOL i don't believe anything he says. This is a distraction from their fuck up with Iran.

  16. no surprise big medical bills? whoop-dee-do. how about NO medical bills, asshole.

  17. I want the Medicare tax raised to cover all veterans who retired with 20 or more years of service. These vets should not be forced from their Tricare health system and be forced into the Medicare system where their retired income is taken from their Social Security. It's wrong, it's wrong, it's wrong !

  18. i'm pretty sure there is a deal in there where the pharma corps get some kind of tax break. So the drugs are lower in prices but the taxpayers will have to pay the tax cuts the corps get in some kind of tax hike.

  19. Hey, a big dose of socialism for our dear corporations can only help the little people, right?

  20. 🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂

  21. Wonder why my Medicare is so expensive still? I was better off using private insurance and i can't now. It's mandatory that anyone 65 or over has to use Medicare.

  22. Meanwhile democrats elsewhere back stabbing each other for votes.

  23. Bullshit artist at work!

  24. Such low volume

  25. And health care for contract employees.
