So, to sum up: Trump has offered scant details about how he would replace Obamacare. But what little he has said is philisophically consistent with the arguments in favor of single-payer, a policy approach that he has praised in the past.
The whole irony of this is that right now, Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in the midst of a heated debate in which Sanders is arguing in favor of single-payer and Clinton is saying it would go too far to be politically feasible.
Should Clinton and Trump be the nominees, it will have meant that Democratic voters will have rejected the candidate pushing single-payer healthcare and Republicans will have embraced him.

Of course it would. UHC would require the government to manage everything rather than just overseeing the legislating.

Everyone knows it costs more to manage, than to legislate others to take action.

p.s. dont think for a minute, Clinton isnt going to flip flop after she beats Sanders into claiming Trump"care" doesnt even go far enough.. She'll begin talking about insuring illegals etc...

Medicaid in our state has went to 3 private insurance companies. It is nothing but a big mess. It is called KanCare (I call it "KanCareNot") and it has created one big mess. The mess I am told is a result of ObamaCareNot and the "positiveNot" changes that it has brought. We have an adult son with Down syndrome who is impacted by ObamaCareNot.

We will save HUGE amounts of money on healthcare when we don't have to pay for illegals and anchors anymore. Illegal Immigrants Add to US Healthcare Costs and Illegal Immigrants Account for $10.7 Billion of Nation and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...s-health-care/

A lot of savings to be had across the board. That is the way I view Trump on the issues, they all work together to Make American Great Again!
