Do you remember what Candidate Trump’s Healthcare Reform Plan looked like?  I’ll remind you that it was glorious.  It was as if his campaign consultants hand-selected numerous Libertarian, free-market policies and listed them out in bullet points. 

Anyone who has read Economics in One Lesson, or passed any Econ101 course cheered it.

Either way, if you want to read a quick 4-page primer on health care reform, here it is.  It’s appealing because it was designed to lure you into voting for Trump.  Unfortunately, once you’re in power, ceding that power to the free market is a tougher task than any president can accomplish.

President Trump should go back and demand legislators FULLY REPEAL ObamaCare and institute a concise version of this:
