Why Did Trump Fail To Pass His Health Reforms?

Johnny Luk | Posted 27.03.2017 | UK Politics
Johnny Luk

President Trump is probably sitting in the Oval Office seething. What went wrong? Leaving aside the technical details, such as the loss of medical insurance coverage for 25 million people - scaring the moderates, or in the other extreme, not cutting costs enough for the diehards, this legislative exercise, like all major decisions, is about behaviour.

One must never underestimate the role of the political economy and its influence on a business strategy. Government and regulation are the directors of the global economic theatre. The interconnectedness of which means that decisions in one part of the world have a rippling effect on the other.

What Does Trumpcare Mean For The Future Health Of The USA?

Dr David Chivers | Posted 12.12.2016 | UK Politics
Dr David Chivers

Explaining the US health system to UK and European audiences can be a challenge. In the US, access to affordable healthcare is a very emotive subject, attracting strong opinions across the spectrum. With the new President-elect heralding a shake-up for Obamacare - which was introduced to provide greater access to healthcare - emotions are likely to rise higher over coming months as this policy becomes a key area of focus for the new administration.

Cherish The NHS - The American Alternative Is an Expensive Nightmare

Tim Bradley | Posted 06.06.2015 | UK Politics
Tim Bradley

To a Brit, it is a truly frightening and confusing and bank account-draining system. We got our daughter to the nearest emergency medical centre in our arms, and the staff immediately asked us to complete two long forms for the insurance company, and for a swipe of our credit card (you'll notice this is a recurring theme) before they even inquired what was wrong with our little girl or showed any signs of compassion whatsoever. It makes you angry to witness. Money is absolutely the priority in any medical scenario here. The average cost of an ambulance ride in LA for instance is $1,200 (£800).

I've seen some of Obama's America and reported it as fairly as I'm able, but while I may disapprove of the President's seeming dismissal of the Huffington Post as a relevant source of news, I'll sure as hell defend to the death his right to say that that's what he thinks.

An American Doctor Experiences an NHS Emergency Room

The hospital was on the ageing side and a little drab, but clean and well-marked. I didn't have to ask anyone for directions. We had to take a number to be registered, but waited less than five minutes. I gritted my teeth a bit in preparation for the we-are-not-from-the-UK conversation, but it wasn't an issue at all. I offered my US insurance number for billing, but was told they didn't need it.

Obamacare: A British Man's Letter To The American Citizen

Dear American Citizen, I write from the other side of the Atlantic. Our homelands are separated by a vast, malevolent body of water. Thousands of miles stand between us, yet still we share so many things, music, theatre, fashion, culture, history, high street stores and banking ties, and much more. Our military train together, and politicians lean on each other. We really aren't that different.
