Herman Cain Has It Backwards On Cancer Treatment

Herman Cain, one of the more unknown candidates for the Republican presidential nomination, is either ignorant of health care policy or is willing to say anything in the hopes of getting a little attention. He claims that, “”If ObamaCare had been fully implemented when I caught cancer, I’d be dead.”

The reality is that the Affordable Care Act does not  meaningfully limit his choices in receiving treatment for cancer . In reality the plan increases choices for patients. More importantly, the status quo actually does lead to people dying because they are not able to receive insurance coverage. This includes people who have insurance but lose their insurance because they become too sick to work or because their insurance company could get away with stopping their coverage.
