Reality of Health Care

Trump, during his business career, has been the master of simplistic solutions: be the biggest jerk in the room, and people will basically give you what you demand just to get rid of you, because they can’t stand having to deal with you any more.

He approaches repealing the Affordable Care Act in the same way, willfully oblivious to the complexities of health care in America.

Atul Gawande, surgeon and author, makes the case for paying attention to reality:

I fervently wish Dr. Gawande were the nominee for HHS, not the conflict-of-interest prone and ideological Dr. Tom Price.
