NY Times – The Daily (a podcast): Trump Wanted To Scrap Obamacare. His Party Didn’t (+ Some contextual comment from Adam)

11/04/2019

Firstly some contextual comment from Adam

Adam does not understand why so many Americans and their politicians are so obsessed with not having any form of universal healthcare.  It seems nonsensical for the USA to o on about Human Rights, when a basic tenet of a modern society a functioning health system accessible to all is lacking. This is not socialism, it is about ensuring the safety of the population.

Plus before the podcast – a view from Drew Sheneman of the Star Ledger in New Jersey

Now the podcast

President Trump has backed away from his call to replace the Affordable Care Act with a Republican alternative. Why did his own party talk him out of it?
