Health insurance is of course distinct from the wall, though it involves Trump’s controversial mentality and decisions. But since it has been bought up, I’ll state briefly my convictions as an outsider, who can compare with other countries. So all these plans by US governments are barking at the wrong tree, not attacking the underlying problem, but merely constituting different ways of distributing the excessive, undiminished costs. The root of the problem lies in medical care costing far too much in the US. Doctors are grossly overpaid, medicines expensive, hospitals unaffordable etc. Costs are further pushed up by ridiculous court decisions about compensations in cases of mistakes, which require doctors, hospitals and drug companies to pay large part of their income for their own insurance. Until all this gross excess of costs is reduced, no medical plan will solve the problem.
