Crippled America
Donald J Trump
Contributed by Nina Calhoun
Chapter 7

In this chapter, the author talks about his experience with negotiating for and providing workers with good healthcare cover. He states that he has wide experience in determining what works well and what cannot work out properly concerning providing healthcare insurance for people (Trump 46). Trump points out flaws into the Affordable Care Act, sponsored by President Obama, which he states is hard to understand for many and likely to push the cost of healthcare up. He states that the premiums paid to insurance companies under the Obamacare are skyrocketing at between 30%-50%. Accordingly, this would indicate that many people are finding it hard to keep up with their policy covers (Trump 49). Trump believes that the Act makes it hard for doctors to get reimbursement from insurance companies for the services they render which in turn tends to reduce the quality of care that doctors can provide their patients.


Considering that the introduction of the Obamacare was one of the highly hyped healthcare developments of President Obama’s administration, discussions related to this topic would have attracted a lot of attention for American readers. Healthcare has also often been a huge topic for consideration in almost every American Government. The US population has always wanted to have high quality and affordable healthcare services, an aspect which the Obama administration had achieved a great deal in. By poking holes into the Affordable Care Act, proposed during the Obama regime, Trump creates an opportunity to make the readers have an examination of the Act as well as the various elements that fail to work for them as detailed in the book. The Chapter also provides the readers with a conception of what is contained within a good healthcare system, and in this manner, they can decide which direction go why casting their votes.
