welcome back. president trump unveiling a new
2:43 am
lower cost option for health insurance. but according to democrats, it's junk. so what's the problem if it's going to cost less? well, we're going to talk about it. here to debate is dr. tha nan heyworth and mus m usta fa de. is this another attack on the health care system? >> absolutely. the reason why it's junk is because there's not a lot of coverage in this health insurance policy. and so it's almost like buying auto insurance and your liability coverage is only $5,000. well, that's not going to do you a lot of good when you get into a wreck. it's the same thing with this insurance poll civil there's not a lot there. they're cheaper because there's not a lot of coverage. many of the people that are sicker are going to keep on their coverage that they have.
2:44 am
healthier people will choose the junk policies which will drive the cost for those that actually need the insurance and won't be able to afford it. this is a real problem. president trump is putting politics in front of american families' lives and this is unfair. this is totally destructive for the insurance march cessments h. he knows better than to not do this. >> nan, we're going to go over to you. they call this an attack on obamacare. we repealed the individual mandate, the administration has. i believe that will go into effect next year. sounds like he's trying to give an option to people that don't want to pay explosively high premiums for health care. he doesn't want to force them to. he can't get rid of the mandate until next year. he's giving them a cheap option now, right? >> it's an affordable option, rob. you know, i was privileged, i'm the only female physician to ever serve as a member of congress, and what i know from having been a doctor is that
2:45 am
obamacare unfortunately artificially inflates the cost of insurance. it's an attack on the american consumer and on the american patient. so what the trump administration, what the president's doing is actually creating the option to have insurance that meets our needs. most of us only need catastrophic insurance for the big expenses. so insurance policies that he provide the coverage we need at a cost we can afford make the greatest sense in the world. m usta fa said it when he said we won't be able to get people to pay for more expensive policies. well, that's because they don't need -- friends i have who don't have kids have pediatric dental coverage. men have maternity insurance. they don't need that. they shouldn't have to pay for that. >> over to you. it's a system where -- this is how we pay for obamacare, the individual mandate getting young, healthy people to pay for insurance is how the system
2:46 am
works. is it fair for young people to pay for thousands of dollars of insurance that they most likely don't need. >> all insurance works that way. if only the people that were sick that had a particular condition were the ones that were able to buy a health insurance policy, then insurance policies wouldn't work. the whole idea is that you cover a larger group of people, people that are sick, people that are healthy, give them the same type of coverage so that costs overall are spread out. if you only cover the people that have an illness, naturally the insurance will become unaffordable. and long-term, people will let go of their coverage and we'll have what we had before where 40 million americans aren't insured and they end up in the emergency room as the only care that they can afford. which ends up being the cost of the taxpayers. we have to have some common sense. the president is looking to get rid of obamacare because he made a political promise that he shouldn't have made in the first place. >> a quick response from you? >> the president made a promise
