The road ahead for health care reform in the U.S. is treacherous and filled with many obstacles. The process outlined by Newt Gingrich is a good one: sensible, pragmatic, comprehensive and well-thought-out. 

Unfortunately, it has a small chance of being followed by the White House, the Congress or health care reform advocates.

The reasons are simple:

  • No one in the Beltway wants to touch it with a 10-foot pole.
  • Whoever brave enough to bring this subject back will lose his seat in 2018 or 2020.
  • Republican’s margin in Senate before 2018 is too small even if a bill passes the House.
  • Trump won’t understand it because it is much more complicated than building an apartment building. 
  • Trump has no vision to see the forest. He can’t handle the details. 
  • It takes more than 140 characters to get the points cross.
  • American people don’t have the patient nor the stamina to follow it through. They care about the results only; not the process.
  • Democrats will do their darnedest to block the legislature in the Congress.
  • Republican will lose the control of Senate to a united Democrat Party in 2018.
  • People work in The Congressional Budget Office don’t like Trump. It will come up with a number that will make the bill, any health insurance reform bill, look bad.
