Ben Shapiro’s Solution To Healthcare

Ben Shapiro’s Solution To Healthcare


(student) I am a full-time student and I also work in a pharmacy and it’s the beginning, relatively the beginning of the year right now and for those who are in the middle class that be means deductibles and premiums yes! now, the epipen for example back in 2006-2007 was around $90 now we look at the price of the same drug same drugs now made out of gold although ironically it is yellow and now costs $595 yes, um in light of yesterday’s debate with us and Mr Sanders and mr. Cruz how should we take care of these insanely huge deductibles there’s people that cannot afford a life-saving medications like the EpiPen which helps with allergies if not setting a price range if not importing drugs from Canada (Shapiro) well we should have drug importation obviously. i think more competition in the marketplace is better when people have a monopoly on the EpiPen it’s a problem (student) and a big issue with this is that the open market has cost this patent system where any pharmaceutical company Milan Perico etc… etc… (Shapiro) right! now this is a race issue this is very serious issue (student) yeah! what is your suggestion to resolve the growing costs of life-saving drugs? (Shapiro) yeah! I mean I think that as populations grow the period in patent exclusivity is going to have to shrink so the, you know, patents have a certain life period thats handed the Congress has the power to license patents for a certain amount of time (student) for years but the companies can manipulate it to extend that just by changing things scientifically based like chirality, vectors (Shapiro) yeah it has to be shortened particularly in cases where there’s really only one type of drug because some some drugs obviously can make sort of a generic competitor it’s not exactly the same but it’s really close I mean you know more about this than I do but there are certain areas where there’s an absolute monopoly on the type of drug and there you have to talk about shortening the period because otherwise you’re going to end up with monopolies in the market like that’s a true monopoly that’s a natural true monopoly (student) they are (Shapiro) yes and that’s obviously a problem as far as you know our health insurance system right now there’s two questions to be had one is what does the ideal health insurance system look like? or the health care system look like? and one is, how do we get from here to there? and those are not the same question and I think people tend to conflate the two so for example there’s a lot of people right now who have pre-existing conditions and when I say ‘free market’ people think, oh I’m going to immediately throw them off their insurance, and that means they’re going to die in the streets because I’m saying free market no what I’m saying is that we’ve had a system where for a very long time there hasn’t been a free market and so what you have to do is you basically have to say to young healthy people that you need to make good decisions now right it’s on you you want to buy insurance you buy insurance but we’re not going to apply to you the same rules we’re going to apply to 65 year old who’s been living under a bad to health care regime for the last 40 years (student) aside from an EpiPen, how can you prevent having an allergy (Shapiro) right now i’m not saying that you can prevent having an allergy I’m talking about health insurance now I mean if you want to talk about you know the EpiPen and how people get access to it? first of all I think that there may be and I think there probably let’s put this way, there e are community solutions that don’t necessarily come from government meaning that in my community, right, my Jewish community people when there’s a health problem people really put a lot of money into it to help out their friends and neighbors which is why I talk so much about social fabric and I say if there’s no social fabric you end up with the growth of government because somebody has to take care of the people who fall between the cracks that used to be churches right now it’s the government so you know on a long-term level you want to sort of redirect it away from government and back toward those churches for now we’re going to have to give subsidies I mean that’s just reality I mean, Cruz said it himself last night virtually everyone on the right understands but the question is is that a temporary stopgap or is that your final solution and I think it should be a temporary stopgap aiming toward eventually eliminating a lot of these subsidies and making people responsible for their own health insurance because if you’re not going to… eventually look, if you’re not going to pay for your own child’s health insurance or if you’re not going to pay for your own health insurance then the market attends. if you don’t take care of yourself and you don’t pay for your health insurance you can’t penalize people who make good decisions on behalf of people who make bad decisions it’s different for children I think than it is for parents obviously (student) all right thank you can I shake your hand (Shapiro) sure

    Anybody who thinks he is getting a good deal by spending twice as much for an inferior product deserves to be called Shapiro. Google for per capita expenditure on medicine. Then Google for life expectancy. You Americans pay more than twice as much for health care and die younger! Don't trust me. Don't trust this dummy Shapiro. Check it out.

  2. Megarational says:

    Republicans are now promoting that people join large co-operative risk pools to get lower prices. Single payer is the largest co-operative risk pool possible – the entire nation.

  3. Megarational says:

    I've lived years in the U.S., have family and friends in the US., and have lived more than half a century in Canada.  Single payer wins hands down. No contest! BENEFITS OF SINGLE PAYER:

    1. covers everyone
    2. costs far less per capita, but it’s free at point of use so no one is deterred from getting hc they need when they need it
    3. Insurance companies can't drop you (because you don't even have to deal with insurance companies).
    4. you can't go bankrupt over med bills. (Compare that to the  US system, where hc costs are the leading cause of personal bankruptcies.)
    5. preexisting conditions are covered.
    6. you don't lose your coverage if you lose your job, and no one is “locked into” a job just for health care coverage
    7. no co-payments, deductibles or caps
    8. no claims to file
    9. No burden on businesses.
    10. No bureaucrat, public or private, comes between you and your doctor. (Compare that to the US system where HMO’s and insurance corp bureaucrats tell you whether you can get treatment, what type of treatment you can have, what doctor you must see, whether you can go to the hospital or not and if so for how long.)
    11. Compared to the US system single payer system produces, according to the World Health Organization, as good or better hc outcomes by medical condition.
    12. When the rich and politically powerful are served by the same hc system as everyone else, they will try to move heaven and earth to make it work.

    Single payer, contrary to the Republican propaganda, is NOT "government controlled health care" nor “socialized medicine”, nor “government takeover of all health care”. It's just a hc FINANCING system. You just see your doctor, get whatever treatment the doc prescribes, and the single payer administration pays for it. It doesn't interfere with you or your doctor. It just spreads the costs and contributions out over the entire population.

    Doctors, clinics, are still private and compete for customers and strive for efficiency in order to reduce their costs and increase their profits.

    Under single payer the private insurance companies still do a thriving business, offering “Cadillac” plans that cover the frills, like a private room if you are hospitalized, that may not be covered under the single payer hc financing system.

    Single payer is also a powerful tool to reduce the cost of health services and prescription drugs. Think of it this way, if a buyer from the local Mom and Pop hardware store and a buyer from Home Depot go to a widget supplier, who do you think will be offered the lowest price? There is a powerful incentive for competing health service providers and drug suppliers to offer the lowest prices to the highest volume buyer. it's why, for example, Canadians pay far less for prescription drugs than Americans do for the exact same drugs made by the exact same suppliers.

  4. sirroxalot says:

    Liberals want the freedom to make their own choices, but none of the responsibility of those decisions.

  5. John King says:

    This guy is evil. He is against socialised health care. Some FACTS compare UK and US per capita spending on health. Compare UK and US life expectancy. In the UK people live longer than Americans. They spend less than half as much on health. The American system is trash.

  6. John King says:

    Google UK life expectancy compare US and Canada. Then compare Infant mortality in all three countries. Then compare expenditure. You die earlier, you pay more and more of your babies die. Is that good? Look it up.

  7. agentssith says:

    People like Shapiro have a deeply flawed view of government. It is rather tiring to hear the rhetoric of the big bad federal government over and over. That which is closest to you has the most power over you and your choices. It seems that his solution is oh well, just get together with your neighborhood religious community consign yourself to bullshit beliefs and hope that you fit in enough to pass as part of that community. And leave yourself no way out of that. So now your neighbors are all up in your shit, judging you and reporting you for your so called sins. Nevermind what is happening outside your cute little neighborhood, that's all there is! You should probably work there too, and trade your chickens for your neighbors cheese. Great job sir.

    Your government, such as it is, can be thought of as concentric circles around you. These are all the things that govern your life. You have a family government, an employer's government, a neighborhood government, municipal government, state, then federal. The ones nearest to you are highly likely to be the most oppressive. If you are more worried about what Nancy Pelosi is doing on a day to day basis or you think she is of you, over what your neighbor might do with your common fence or property line or what your backstabbing colleague might be doing to you, you know your priorities are all fucked up.

    I say this and I am all with you in regards to the social fabric and people being neighborly toward each other. Perhaps you can put on some pressure here, but that is about all you can do. certainly doesn't help when you guys keep bringing up the Fed, because that is YOUR bread and butter. You have a non job, sir, your product is pure bullshit, your opinion.

  8. zar qume says:

    Either we have universal healthcare or turn people away from hospitals who can't afford it

  9. zar qume says:

    Why can't the community be the government? I don't want church, I want a democratic institution!

  10. Lex Taylor says:

    I think conservatives should look at the system prior to Obamacare that is still ongoing where anyone can go to an Emergency Room and receive care even if they cannot pay for that care. That has pushed up the cost of Emergency Room visits and Healthcare in general to pay for those who are not paying for their own insurance or co-pays. Often the ER, medicare or medicaid keep a lot of people from dying outside the emergency room.

    I think if society isn't going to let people die outside a hospital, then they should properly tax (regressively) to cover those costs. It will help to properly allocate resources and its being financially responsible. Its being a realist.

    In economic terms, the externality is lack of knowledge by the consumer of statistics and all of the psychological traps hardwired into people's brains to improperly judge risks. The second part of that reality is that no one feels the externality because we do have government safety nets and government regulation of hospitals requiring mandatory service.

    In the current environment, I would repeal Obamacare (promising the moderate Republicans the next step)… Integrating healthcare with some sort of backstop health insurance from the government for the things we were requiring hospitals do anyway for free and try to get some of those services out of ERs and into cheaper more efficient doctor in a box facilities. The backstop insurance should be inadequate, so to promote the majority of consumers to stay in a private insurance system. Then even though you are creating a new tax to pay for this new backstop insurance, have overall tax reductions in the major tax reform bill. This has the greatest chance of getting the Tax bill the necessary Democratic votes needed for its passage.

    Beware of persons that speak very fast and without stops . They're trying you don't have time to think against what they're saying…

  12. RJK Videos says:

    I WOULD SAY THE SAME THING GET RID OF THE PATENTS

  13. Carl Lelandt says:

    I suspect there's probably a number of outstanding solutions to "universal" health care. The establishment is incapable of getting "outside the box" to consider them.

  14. Charlie M says:

    In a nutshell, that's the liberal philosophy… Reward people who make bad decisions…

  15. Alex Mackay says:

    Single payer WORKS. Every western country has it. It is a lot cheaper and provides BETTER outcomes. The free market does not work well for healthcare because you don't have a free choice about your health. If you are sick, you HAVE to pay or you die. Why don't conservatives understand that basic point?

  16. MFabian says:

    BOY HOWDY THAT SURE WAS A COHERENT SOLUTION

  17. Le reddit silver member says:

    Really the solution is churches? Stop making everything so expensive and maybe a community could afford to take care of one another. The government needs to step in on health care. People are getting to greedy. Hospitals try to overcharge insurance companies, so insurance companies focus on what they can do to make insurance almost unusable. It's worthless cycle all over money and not about helping people.

  18. setarita says:

    I wonder what a Shapiro hand shake feels like.

  19. Andrew Webster says:

    I'm sorry but your insurance won't fully cover your cancer treatment. But don't worry, just walk down to your local community group(aka church, mosque, synagogue) and ask for half million dollars. Right, can't see how that could be a problem.

  20. Brutus Tan says:

    The whole EpiPen debate was actually caused by GOVERNMENT Restriction on Generic Alternatives. Teva had in the works a generic form of it that was restricted by the FDA. That's right the FDA. If it wasn't for that self serving agency we would've had it by now. It was NOT a result of a free market abuse but again a BIG GOVERNMENT one

  21. Manc26 says:

    I have to disagree with ben here. I boils down the difference between a healthy person and an unhealthy person to be an aspect of choice. What about hereditary conditions you have no control over for the most part? or maybe you were in a car accident where someone else hit you when they were driving recklessly? your health is not all the time within your control

  22. mtklima says:

    The churches ? This guy is a complete fuckwit.

  23. Truss monkey says:

    How about completely removing patents on lifesaving medicine? Oh some people feel company profits are more important then the countless lives that could benefit from cheaper medicine.

  24. Jim Jensen says:

    When you think of health insurance in a non profit way, the solution to affordable health insurance is simple:

    Free care for all, including drugs after raising taxes a small percentage that would go towards hospitals, salaries, medicines, etc.
    And donations and charity money for patients whose illness requires larger expenses.
    The answer is simple. Our country complicates things due to greed.
    I would also tax all pharmaceuticals because th ey are so disgustingly rich today that a tax that would go towards hospital expenses that would hardly put a noticeable, harmful dent in their business.

  25. Lamanite Flarpleston says:

    I clicked this to see Ben and Bernie talk to each other

  26. Thomas Fisher says:

    not much a solution to the healthcare conundrum. so it should be, in his mind, on the whim of charity? how many mega churches are in the country that are tax free, not to mention synagogues and temples–you would think the poor would never be in want. people do not buy health insurance because it's expensive not because they are being irresponsible. it's against a private insurance companies business model to cover even the basics because they aim is to make money not improve the lives of their beneficiaries. this niche market is vastly different than buying a chair which is a commodity of convenience. and what are insurance companies doing now? the ones that are left are merging. it is becoming an oligarchy and they continue to demand higher premiums to void paying out. social healthcare is the only way everyone can have access to affordable healthcare so they can utilize preventative medicine.

  27. Radnally says:

    Why is US health care so much more expensive than other developed countries? This should be the subject to discuss.

  28. Manu fm says:

    Basically become a Jew because Jews help each other

  29. James Kay says:

    how can he be against abortion and against public health care. Its giving life with one hand and taking it away with the other. The two beliefs along side on another are hypocritical.

  30. O R says:

    Yeah, making good decisions is a good advice, but a multitude of diseases and accidents happens to people who live healthy lives as well! You can't plan your health status exactly like your finances. And this community he speaks so warmly about (his jewish community) is what governments are trying to make their countries to function as. If it hurts him so bad to chip in for people outside his own community, shouldn't he just move to Israel? He clearly looks at himself as seperate from the rest of the US community.

  31. Pasquale Gelardi says:

    Who is chewing his fingers ?

  32. Jason C says:

    Ben's argument is flawed on so many points. I think he needs to speak to some people with pre-existing conditions and see how a free market system would affect them.

  33. muchimi says:

    how to respond to the charge: the top 30 countries that have universal healthcare have longer lives, better health, better lifestyles:l

    " Debating two health care systems
    1) universal health care of the top 30 countries where you live the longest
    2) our for profit system were you die younger

    We die younger than 30 socialist countries.
    That is fact.

    HAHA
    You really haven't thought this thru.- NHS is SOOOO broken yet still saves more lives, still less babies died than the US. imagine how bad we must be that a broken system STILL is better than what we got!

    Your argument about universal health care is just as silly. Save yourself the trouble since you're SOOO busy. Look up mortality rates by country in wiki and you will know what health care systems are better"

  34. Exisist says:

    Ok. This is a blue moon. I have searched the problem with Ben Shapiro and no negative video appeared on my screen before I started scrolling down.

  35. Weber Candilora says:

    Ben's ideologies here are dodgy..

  36. Kim O'Brien says:

    What he is say is basically this don't let government do it or only in stop gap measures because we like to kick some people off of health care by retaining private insurance thieves but keep health care for ourselves. Also notice that his suggestion is that people need to be responsible just like what they say before a natural disaster. YOUR ON YOUR OWN. same with health insurance YOUR ON YOUR OWN.

  37. Shawn Bechard says:

    The question remains, can people afford the health insurance for them and their family?

  38. Megarational says:

    Hey Ben, you bullshitter. Name one country on earth where leaving health care up to the free market has worked.

  39. Megarational says:

    "Can I shake your hand?"
    "Sure"
    "Now you have the flu"

  43. Aubrey Hurley says:

    Ben literally provided zero solutions. Listen to this video a couple times. He ends it with “if you can’t afford your own health insurance, then that’s your fault”. Really, what a brilliant answer, I mean, genius…

  44. Counterexample says:

    if you are against government health care I assume you are in favor of deducting taxes on the middle classes?

  45. CJ B says:

    While I agree that the rich are poorly taxed… I believe those taxes should go to increasing the wages of workers that have value in this economy. Welfare should only get money from some taxes but mostly charity. If you aren't working, you should have only exactly what you need, not more. And low skill workers should never make 15 dollars an hr, that will break this economy socialism fails

    Wow, i didnt expect ben to support subsidies. But there is no problem with that as he says that it would be temporary. It also seems most logical.

  50. Don Layton says:

    First, we have to realize that new life-saving medications that are developed (almost exclusively in the US btw) cost about 2.7 billion dollars per year on average to bring to market (see https://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2017/10/16/the-cost-of-developing-drugs-is-insane-a-paper-that-argued-otherwise-was-insanely-bad/#6d731daf2d45). The US markets bear the brunt of those costs (which is why you can often find the same medication in other countries for less money). If you want to reduce costs, do two things. First, pass a law that any US drug manufacturer cannot legally sell a product for less to a foreign country than they can in the US. This alone would correct most of the problem. And second, reduce – seriously reduce the crazy regulations that drive up the cost of medications in the first place. These two actions alone would nearly solve our high drug cost problem. The free market, coupled with minimal, common-sense legislation is the answer. What we have now is not working but socialized medicine is not the answer either.

  51. Jann Lee says:

    Ben Shapiro Nordic countries rank best in healthcare far better than the USA!
    But I am sure you have some bullshit argument and lies that idiots believe in you!

  52. Nevolet says:

    wait, you are talking about churches being a solution to money for medical issues? Are you serious, how about everyone of a different faith than christians? how about atheists or agnostics?

  53. eno asic says:

    The issue with reducing the patent length on drugs is the cost of developing these drugs. It takes years of testing and developing and millions of dollar to make an effective drug that is safe for humans, and then to prove that it is safe for humans. There is no government program that can change the difficulty of developing life saving drugs, so they have to provide insensitive to the pharmaceutical companies to actually do that. So if we shorten patent length then the companies are likely to make less money from the huge investment required to bring drugs to market. The issue we have here is that drugs cost too much because there are monopolies on drugs, but the monopoly on drugs is the only thing that makes developing drugs worth it. A potential solution to this problem is legalization of all drugs. This is a radical idea that a lot of people are uncomfortable with, but it has a lot of benefits. As for the benefits applied to this situation it comes down to who is gonna profit off of making recreational drugs legal. The pharmaceutical companies would more than likely be the ones who can produce recreational drugs on a large scale. This would make them money which would give them more capability to develop helpful drugs. It is also possible that they would just say to hell with helpful drugs lets just get rich off of selling cocaine and LSD. I don't know what would happen, but I think its an interesting solution that ive never heard anyone else talk about. Thoughts?

  54. Sir Lucifer says:

    Thank you Ben for your solution that only benefits the wealthy. Only makes me further consider having my gf move up here in Canada rather than me moving down in that shithole of a country.

  55. BRBallin1 says:

    I'm a fan of personal accountability, but the healthcare industry is an absolute overpriced scam. If the prices aren't affordable to the average person out of pocket, then something needs to be done about it.

  56. XxXVideoVeiwerXxX says:

    Jews have that "social fabric" because israel made america its bitch

  57. Astro Peanut says:

    This is one thing I find it hard to agree with. I’m a great fan of Mr Shapiro but do not think this simplistic solution will work for all.

  58. Michael Little says:

    What about people who cant afford healthcare? Always hear people running down single-payer healthcare but those same people never have any other ideas about how to get people that can't afford Healthcare Healthcare it sickens me .

  59. Sir Lucifer says:

    The health care system of America is one of the main reasons that outside citizens are shitting the country on. Yet these yanks like to point out how "free" their country is and how the world should be apart of the US.

    The US is far behind on this issue and others alike. Many other nations provide healthcare and free services to their citizens, with the price of higher taxes.
    But no! Higher taxes are too scary for the majority bunch in the states.
    God damn, the US is only for the land of the wealthy.

  60. captain underpants says:

    The fact is what Obama did wasn't a forever fox all system and I believe he knew that when he wrote it into law, but I believe he did it knowing that eventually people will come to a middle ground agreement. Ok health insurance companies make a shit load of profit either way. They have never actually lost money in the business. I think they can give a little. It's analogous of the wall scenario, republicans habe won a lot with Trump and nothing has gone how the majority of society wanted it. We are paying higher in taxes and there are less jobs. How did he make America great? His repeal and replace bill left 10million people uninsured… how is that better. He promised to provide better healthcare cheaper, I went from paying about 300/month to paying $800/month…. you people votes for this. How did he drain the swamp? He has had 4 out 6 campaign advisors convicted of felonies. This is the most corrupt presidency in American history and nobody bats an eye. You people voted for this. You republicans and conservatives and teabaggers have literally fucked this country. So you want smaller government? Ok take government provided things away for a few weeks and shit gets real, take it away for years …. can you imagine?

  61. captain underpants says:

    Ben Shapiro can't give a specific solution because he knows he can't give one while at the same time catering to his corporate slut conservative group as a target market.

  62. WarriorofLight says:

    Health Care is the only real political issue that I think Ben is missing something on…

  63. B King says:

    Ben loves Israel’s ‘National Health Insurance’ policy because it’s only for HIS people…

  64. Dom A says:

    I had private insurance and a very successful job before I became disabled at the exact same time ACA was ratified.

    My result was, and remains to be TERRIBLE QUALITY OF SERVICE, AT AN UNKNOWN COST. Medicare only exists if you take exactly zero medications, or decide to pay 100% out of pocket. Period.

    You immediately beget the national benefit rights of Medicare when you ‘elect’ to have prescription coverage, or utilize Medicare Part D which covers exactly zero of the 4 medications I am involuntarily required to take every day of my life.

    I am 39-years-old and disabled w a rare genetic vascular disorder that was dormant until I was 34-years-old. My wife is still employed, and for a very brief moment, her private insurance covered ABSOLUTELY ALL OF MY MEDICAL NEEDS, PLUS MEDICATIONS AT $5 PER EVERY SINGLE TIME I NEEDED THEM, AT A REASONABLY HIGHER PREMIUM COST.

    I would give just about anything for the ‘ACA’ to have NEVER EXISTED. Anyone who does not require medical and prescription benefits to survive does not have a right to an uneducated opinion in this debate, or any other that they cannot contribute their own life experience, or a substantial expertise in the subject against. The substantial expertise caveat is predicated w the fundamental absence of corruption, and that is in short order in a country that prioritizes political corruption over ALMOST anything and everything. Our current situation of national success across almost every objective metric, perpetually reported journalistically as ‘the end of Democracy’ offers little to no hope. The American ignorance epidemic literally festers corruption and tyranny to a population begging for it.

    Things are definitely looking up!

    PRIVATE INSURANCE WORKED ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY.

    Redirecting back to churches? WOW Most all the churches are a snare and a racket! Why would you give to a church? The people should give to the individual who needs help, set up a go fund me account if they need assistance. But going to a church and asking for money, or help is a bad idea!

    If the church had the money to pay for people's health insurance, they would donate it to Africa where the dollar can save more people.

    Shapiro is a typical intellectual shill tasked with convincing the gullible that things are best left the way they are. Healthcare is easily solved as GROUP self insurance in a single payer payroll tax funding all hospital stays outright. Primary care and Drugs out of pocket BUT with a calendar cap. Saves billions. NO deductibles!! Really, Shapiro, Churches??
