Here’s a brilliant insider piece in the New Yorker. Dr. Karen Kinsell provides an insight into Obamacare and Trumpcare in Rural Georgia.

The bottom line is that both systems fail to treat the poor of Rural Georgia, with perhaps Trumpcare being slightly worse in Kinsell’s view.

Clearly, Rural Georgia needs effective public healthcare. Surely Trumpcare needs to seize the initiative and leverage best-practice in public healthcare in countries like Germany, France, Italy or Singapore? Once upon a time, the UK’s NHS was the gold standard in public healthcare but it’s been abused, is unreformed, compares poorly to international benchmarks, and offers questionable value for money.

Thoughts?
