I suspect the end of Obamacare (how will that unravel?) and the medical device tax going away.
What do you foresee?
The real problem is that healthcare is only affordable for those with employer paid insurance. This will form two healthcare classes and those without coverage will simply have a worse life of it. I know this sounds cruel… under Obama or Trump the results will be the same… Natural law will prevail and the poor will die at a higher rate. Basically, money talks.
Plus, as far as I can tell, most stakeholders are as happy with Shuren as most stakeholders are ever likely to be with the head of ODE, so that almost any change is likely to leave some happier than others. I personally don’t think that’s likely to be a real improvement for anyone in the long term, including some who might think that it worked out better for them. When everyone is reasonably happy, things move along much better for everyone, I think?
More generally, earlier this year someone from Australia commented casually to me that Shuren was a lame duck, destined to be replaced after the upcoming election. I realized I didn’t know if Center Directors are traditionally replaced with changes in Administration. Does anyone here know if that is usually the case?
Here is one assessment by Motley Fool. I’m sure there are more available now, and many more to come, as unanticipated change is always a boon to prognosticators and pundits:
