Australian health care system better than US

Australian health care system better than US

As CNBC reported, Trump had spoken earlier in the day in NY at a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and touted Republicans' latest health care bill.

"The deductibles are going to come down".

Australia's health care system is known as Medicare, and it gives all Australian citizens free access to doctors and hospitals.

It also allows them to waive protection for people with pre-existing conditions.

Turnbull said Trump was different to former US President Barack Obama.

Sydney Airport Holdings declines to develop city's 2nd major airport
Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils president Stephen Bali said the government should unveil its plan for the airport: "Without a plan we are flying blind".


Independent scorekeepers at the Congressional Budget Office have not yet analysed the bill, but they estimated an earlier version would have led to 24 million fewer Americans with insurance coverage than under current law.Australia's government plays a larger role in its health system.

"That's great, let's take a look at the Australian health care system. take a look at the Canadian health system".

Canada's health care system is similar in many ways to Australia's one. And it does this all while providing health care to everyone in society - something that America's system, even with Obamacare still in place, does not.

Obviously Bernie Sanders got a kick out of this, because he's been fighting for a universal healthcare system-single payer, Medicare for All-for decades. In 2015, approximately 28.4 million Americans under the age of 65 were uninsured. "The president has just said it".

"Well, Mr. President, you're right, in Australia and every other major country on Earth they guarantee health care to all people". The President thanked Prime Minister Turnbull for traveling to NY for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea, a gesture which shows the deep ties between the United States and Australia. "We'll quote you on the floor of the Senate", Sanders said.
