Only an individual who has never had to buy health insurance in his life would not understand how difficult health insurance and health care can be. So President Donald Trump gets up in front of a group from the National Governor’s Association and said:

President Trump told a meeting of governors that reforming health care is “unbelievably complex,” but pledged that a Republican alternative would be “very good.”

“I have to tell you, it’s an unbelievably complex subject,” he said. “Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated.”

Well actually if he was talking to governor’s I bet each and everyone of them know. I bet the majority of the 535 electeds in the Capitol know. I bet all of you reading this blog post know. And reportedly even some policy people in the White House know! But who knew the president didn’t know?

By the way, the big brouhaha at the various town hall meetings don’t mean anything either.

Trump also argued that recent polls which showed the law has become more popular were just a side effect of the American public realizing that the law would be ending soon. A recent survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 48% of Americans have a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act, the most popular it’s been in 60 surveys the nonprofit has taken since 2010. Other polls show similar results.

“People hate it, but now they see that the end is coming and they’re saying, ‘Oh, maybe we love it,’” he said. “There’s nothing to love. It’s a disaster folks, OK? So you have to remember that.”

But who knew?

    Why doesn’t Trump, Mitch, and Wisconsin’s representative/paid insurance agent take a trip to Canada and a few European countries to learn how they provide health insurance for their citizens?
