GOP moderates are holding up the Obamacare replacement. The “high risk pool” is being overblown by this small group of Republicans.
The high risk pool 55-65 or sick would be charged too much. The subsidy for 130,000.sick patients includes the 5000 people were sick and very expensive. The cost of this high risk pool subsidy is not very high.
Granted, the high cost of healthcare is directly related to the excessive amount of government subsidies going to healthcare. But subsidizing this high risk pool might allow the passage of the Obamacare Repeal that needs to happen.
Addressing the real cost of healthcare should be taken up after Obamacare is dead and gone. Unless the federal government announces a plan to reduce federal funding of healthcare over time, costs will never be reduced.
