Rob Kerchner | An Unlikely Health Care Hero

In 1988, I sat in a Moscow hotel with a dozen Americans and our Russian tour guide, discussing health care. The liberals were decrying the American health system, until the Russian guide bravely asked how much it cost to deliver a baby in America. She then went on to say that she would gladly pay a year’s salary just to be able to choose her delivery doctor in Russia. Most of them were drunkards. 

You could have heard a pin drop. 

And yet just 20 years later, Americans would elect a man who crippled the American health system in innumerable Russian-like ways, even lying that “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” 

Most incredibly, many liberals still view that man as some sort of health care hero.
