Donald Trump's Health Care Plan Shows His Complete Disdain for Expertise
He’s not just clueless—he’s willfully ignorant.
[I]t is not really news that Trump is clueless when it comes to health policy. Trump has never demonstrated even the smallest iota of interest in in the underlying details of policy on this or any other issue. To the extent that he has provided any, they have been incoherent or contradictory: In interviews and speeches, he has praised single-payer health care and promised universal coverage paid for by the government, but also said that his Obamacare replacement will rely on competition and private plans. It is nonsense policy...RTWT it's well worth it.
Trump, then, is not just ignorant on policy details. He is willfully ignorant. It's not just that he doesn't know what he's talking about. It's that he's avoided finding out.
Health Care and oh, say, the Nuclear Triad are not the only things that don't arouse his curiosity.
