HEALTHCARE: “We will end surprise medical billing, that surprise medical billing is a bad deal and it’s now ending, require price transparency, all signed up. Goes into effect January 1. Can you imagine if the sleepy guy gets in and it’s January 1, and everybody says this price transparency, I’ll tell you what, it’s bigger than healthcare. Wait’ll you see. It’s bigger than healthcare, you talk about pricing, bigger.
And can you imagine, and he’ll get credit for it. They’ll say, ‘Biden did a phenomenal job on price.’… So on January 1, I better damn well be president, I’ll tell you.
Well, I will be. I will be. Yeah, for 20 days. Don’t do this to me. Don’t do it that. You can’t do that. No, no. So January 1, it goes into effect. We go out to January 20th.
But you know what? I honestly believe, I don’t think we’re going to have to worry about it. I think we’re going to have price transparency. We’ll be here for four years. And then if we decide to go for an extra four or eight.”
