Transcript of Liberal and Conservative Views on Healthcare

The Liberal Perspective
The liberal philosophy, based on both moral principles and utilitarian arguments, attempts to balance the needs of the individual with the concerns of the entire population.
Elements of the liberal health care perspective include a belief that health care is an equal right of all people, equitable financing of health care, and provides universal health coverage

Fox News Report -Sean Hannity
Five years after passage of the Affordable Care Act, drug prices are emerging again as a political issue. On a presidential campaign stop in Iowa this month, Hillary Rodham Clinton said the government needed to drive a harder bargain with drug companies. In the latest monthly poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the health care priority cited most often, by Democrats and Republicans alike, was making high-cost drugs affordable to people who need them.
Researchers who want to study Medicare or Medicaid patients with substance-use disorders — and illnesses disproportionately affecting them like H.I.V. and hepatitis C — are, at best, working with
biased data
. At worst, they’re flying blind.

That’s because agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services, without public notice and because of patient privacy concerns, decided in 2013 to remove researchers’ access to certain types of Medicare and Medicaid data. Without these data — all relating, even tangentially, to patients with substance-use disorders — health researchers fear they
will be hampered in their quest to improve care.
"The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the ruling. "Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness."
"More voters say their family is worse off than better off under ObamaCare."
"73 percent of Republicans say the country is worse off under Obamacare."
"A 57-percent majority says ObamaCare hasn’t made much of a difference to them."
"Nearly a third of voters overall say they had to make changes to their coverage because of the law, and most of them -- 77 percent -- say it made their health insurance more expensive. Only 12 percent say it reduced their insurance costs."
