Star Parker: Biden Policies Will Only Make US Health Care System Worse
August 30, 2022
CURE Founder and President Star Parker, contributing a segment for Straight Arrow News, discussed how the healthcare savings touted in the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” aren’t what President Biden and Democrats claim they are, saying the White House’s approach shows a lack of awareness of the people they claim to be trying to help, especially Black communities.
Democrats are here in D.C. and out in their districts are celebrating the “Inflation Reduction Act” that they recently passed into law. And one of the ways they’re celebrating is with claims that it will help Black communities. In a recent fact sheet about the new law, released by the White House, they specifically point out that Black Americans are less likely than others to get a shingles vaccination.
But thanks to the “Inflation Reduction Act,” they claim, more Black Americans will now be able to get the shingles vaccine. That’s not a lot of help because Black Americans are way less likely to get shingles in the first place. Even the CDC states that Black Americans are 50% less likely to get it while white Americans get it 50% more often. That’s why Blacks are not getting the vaccine.
