Billionaire philanthropist and presidential candidate Tom Steyer released his health care proposal, which sounds similar to other establishment Democratic candidates. Mr. Steyer’s health care proposal would build on Obamacare by offering a public option and not a #Medicare for All single-payer system.

Steyer wants to reinforce the Obama-era Affordable Care Act, with a public option for the uninsured, a complete divergent health care plan from his progressive rivals, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who are proposing a Medicare for All program.

Steyer's public option:

  • Steyer emphasizes building on the established health care system with the choice to "opt-in" to his version of a public option.

  • Under Mr. Steyer's proposal, the cost of prescription drugs would go down by "benchmarking their cost against international standards" by allowing Americans to buy FDA approved meds internationally and having a "price cap".

  • Using the Dept. of Justice, Health and the F.T.C to "enforce antitrust regulations and consumer protection laws".
