Don Bolduc on Health Care



COVID: Against mask mandate; they collect bacteria

Q: Would you be in favor of a mask wearing mandate?

Bolduc: A mask mandate? No, I would not. I am unapologetically of the opinion that the masks cause more problems than they solve.

Q: How so?

Bolduc: I believe that they collect bacteria. I believe that that they get dirty. I believe that people use the same mask over and over and over again. And they don't change it. They don't change it out. We've had a huge littering problem with masks and rubber gloves, and that's creating a problem.

Keep some of ObamaCare but get the government out of it

The Affordable Care Act has some things in it that we need to keep. First of all, prenatal to postnatal care, pre-existing injuries, are hugely important. If you're going to change health care, you need to change the whole idea and paradigm. We owe people a health care system that's not going to bankrupt them. I think that problem is because the government controls too much of it and we need to get the government out of it, deregulate it, privatize it, make it more competitive.

Go from disease management to health management

I think if we if we stop allowing pharmaceuticals to control our political system that's going to go a long way. We need to go from disease management to health management, and we need to reward good health all the way through. And if we do that, a pill for every ill, and we manage your health, we're going to have a much healthier society and we're going to have much lower cost.

We need to put an emphasis on dental care & oral health

The other thing that we're not making premium in our health care is dental care, gum disease, oral health. It is so important. It reduces heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, heart attack, stroke. And we need to put an emphasis on that. Among our veterans dental care is is a huge problem, right? And in our society.

COVID: Claims Bill Gates wans microchips in vaccine

In a You Tube video, Bolduc made reference to a supposed plan to implant some sort of tracking microchips into people. "The only bracelets anyone is going to put on me are handcuffs, because I'm fighting for my individual rights, my constitutional rights. And the only chip that's going in me is a Dorito," Bolduc said. When asked about the microchip statement, Bolduc said Bill Gates, retired founder of MicroSoft, wants to implant people with tracking microchips.

Replace ACA with free market principle

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many Republicans have campaigned on the message of "repeal and replace." Unfortunately, we have failed to create a common-sense plan to replace the ACA. Why should the free market principle be absent in health care? It shouldn't. If providers want to attract business, that should be done by offering a better product and an affordable cost structure.

ObamaCare is going to collapse under its own weight

On policy, Bolduc predicted that "ObamaCare is going to collapse under its own weight."

And he argued that "we need to get new people" in Congress "to support the president on his initiative to improve health care for all Americans."
