We’ve seen progress on the cancer treatment side of things.
But we’ve seen too much of it at the expense of quality of life for patients.
And it’s not working.
We need to be very careful that we don’t miss the boat on that.
The Affordable Care Act, a health care law that President Trump signed in 2020, expanded Medicaid and made it easier to buy private insurance, expanded the number of providers for Medicare and expanded coverage of the poor and elderly.
But a lot has been left out of that.
For instance, while Trump has repeatedly claimed that Medicaid expansion will “save millions of lives,” it is likely that more people will die from the ACA’s Medicaid expansion than from the Medicaid expansion itself.
As a result, it is now less likely that we will see the kind of rapid improvement in cancer treatment that we saw under the ACA.
This is the biggest problem that we’ve had in cancer care for a long time, and it is the reason why so many Americans are choosing to go into private insurance and Medicare instead of going to a hospital.
Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, addresses the United Nations General Assembly at the United States Embassy in New York, March 3, 2021.
Dr., Dr. Frieden has worked with the American Cancer Society since 1990 and with the National Institutes of Health since 1994.
He is the president and chief executive officer of the American Institute of Cancer Research, a nonprofit that advances science to advance the fight against cancer.
The Trump administration’s attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Law has had the opposite effect.
Instead of reducing health care costs and improving access to care, it has made life worse for millions of Americans who are stuck in a cycle of waiting for coverage.
We must act quickly to ensure that people can keep getting care.
The President has already said that he will veto any bill that attempts to end Medicaid expansion, as we have already seen under previous Presidents.
That is unacceptable.
