Trump on Supreme Court case that could overturn Obamacare: “I hope they end it”
Anadolu Agency via Getty Images Trump got another chance to share his health care plan in a 60 Minutes interview. He didn’t have an answer. Days before the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump isn’t making any secret of his health care agenda: He wants the Supreme Court to strike down the Affordable Care Act — which could leave tens of millions without health care coverage — and he’s nowhere close to having a plan in its place. “I hope they end it,” Trump told 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl, in an interview that the Trump campaign preemptively released over purported concerns that the president’s words would be misconstrued. “It’ll be so good if they end it.” Trump still continues to promise his nonexistent health care plan. He then says regarding Obamacare and the Supreme Court: "I hope that they end it, it will be so good if they end it." Asked how he will protect preexisting conditions, Trump continues to have no answer. pic.twitter.com/6sKUJEdjzX— The American Independent (@AmerIndependent) October 22, 2020 Obamacare, which Trump and congressional Republicans failed to repeal in 2017, is more popular than it’s ever been. Yet Trump’s Justice Department is supporting a lawsuit from 20 Republican states to overturn the law in its entirety. More than 20 million people could lose their insurance without a plan to replace the law. The law’s regulations that bar insurers from discriminating against people based on their medical history, its financial aid to help people buy insurance, and the Medicaid expansion that covered more than 12.5 million Americans would be wiped out. Trump has been gunning to end Obamacare, in one way or another, since he came into office. But he is yet to come up with a plan that could both pass through Congress and not lead to millions of Americans becoming uninsured. In the 60 Minutes interview, Stahl asked how Trump would protect people with preexisting conditions. “I’ll protect it,” Trump said. “Will be totally protected.” “How?” “They’ll be protected, Lesley,” the president repeated. “I mean, the people with pre-existing conditions are going to be protected.” Stahl tried one more time: “How?” Trump instead promised that a health care plan would be coming, eventually, some day. Once the country saw what the outcome of the Supreme Court case is. “It’s fully developed,” he said, without specifying any of its details. “It’s going to be announced very soon, when we see what happens with Obamacare.” Trump’s desire to appear to have a health care plan has been evident in the final months of the campaign. He signed a legally toothless executive order about preexisting conditions. His administration has been trying to figure out how to send $200 discount cards for prescription drugs to Medicare beneficiaries. Trump says he has a health care plan but the public hasn’t seen it. The fundamental problem for Trump is covering people with preexisting condition has already been accomplished — through Obamacare’s regulations for health insurers and the government assistance it provides to lower premiums. The various Republican health care plans would roll back both of those provisions, which makes insurance more expensive for people who are less healthy and would likely lead to millions of people losing coverage. That is not a replacement plan the public is likely to support. So instead, Trump continues to dodge when pressed on this issue, which is of critical importance to many voters. The stakes for US health care are high in the 2020 election. If Trump wins at the Supreme Court but doesn’t have a replacement plan, 20 million people or more could lose insurance; if Joe Biden wins and passes his health care plan, as many as 25 million coverage would gain coverage. Biden seems likely to draw that distinction at Thursday’s second, and final, presidential debate. Trump has laid up the argument for him with this latest interview.

What if the Covid-19 vaccine only works half the time?
A health worker gets a vaccine as part of a drill to prepare for the arrival of a Covid-19 vaccine at a health clinic in Depok, West Java, Indonesia. | Jefta Images/Barcroft Media via Getty Images Even a mediocre Covid-19 vaccine could help end the pandemic. In the not-so-distant future — we’ll probably know who won the 2020 election, but memories of the weirdest Thanksgiving ever will not have faded — you may be faced with an incredibly important choice. Should you get the Covid-19 vaccine? It’s been less than a year since the discovery of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the new disease, and we have not just one, but multiple vaccine candidates that may in time truly shut the door on the pandemic. Though nothing is certain, it’s very likely that some vaccine will be approved soon — and widely available by the end of 2021. Which leads us to ask an important question: What if that vaccine is not very good? The paradox of the mediocre vaccine What do I mean by not very good? 50 percent efficacy. Food and Drug Administration commissioner Stephen Hahn has pledged that the FDA will not grant approval for a vaccine that has less than 50 percent efficacy, so this seems like a reasonable floor. To give a sense of what vaccine efficacy really means, let’s imagine ourselves in the board rooms and meeting spaces at vaccine manufacturers Pfizer, Moderna, and their ilk as they wait for the results to come in. Each of these companies is running large, randomized clinical trials of 30,000 to 60,000 individuals who have not yet contracted Covid-19 in areas where the virus is prevalent. Half get the vaccine; half get a placebo shot. The companies then wait to see who gets sick. The best-case scenario for the manufacturer? Zero cases in the vaccinated group and something well north of zero cases in the placebo group. With, say, 150 cases in the placebo group and zero in the vaccine group, they would be able to claim that their vaccine was nearly 100 percent effective. (To be clear, no vaccine has ever been 100 percent effective.) If there are 150 cases in the placebo group and 75 cases in the vaccine group, now they could say that their vaccine is 50 percent effective. Not as impressive, clearly, but something is still happening. Both Pfizer and Moderna planned on presenting early results after 150 infections had occurred in their study population. But here’s the problem. The less effective a vaccine is, the more of us need to get it to end the pandemic. The math is pretty straightforward. Let’s say that, on average, an individual infected with Covid-19 infects two more people (the now familiar R0). Unchecked, that leads to a huge growth in infections. To end the spread, we need to make sure that each infected person infects less than one additional person. That can be achieved through mask-wearing, social distancing, canceling large gatherings, you know the drill. But it’s not ideal — we want to lift all the restrictions. We need one out of every two people to be immune. And there’s two ways to become immune — through infection or vaccination. (Caveat: The mechanics and durability of Covid-19 immunity are still being studied). If there is a 100 percent effective vaccine, and one out of every two people need to be immune, it means that 50 percent of the population would need to be vaccinated to end the pandemic. But what if we had a 50 percent effective vaccine? In that case, one out of every two people who is vaccinated won’t be protected. To end the pandemic under this scenario, 100 percent of the population would need to be vaccinated. The worse the vaccine is, the more people need to get it to get us out of this mess. The less effective a vaccine is, the less likely people will choose to get it. A new survey in JAMA Network Open evaluating factors predictive of whether people would accept the vaccine found that vaccine efficacy was the No. 1 determinant. People were, on average, 16 percent more likely to accept a vaccine with 90 percent efficacy compared to one with 50 percent efficacy. Get the vaccine anyway It’s tempting to look at the math of a mediocre vaccine and give up, but a mediocre vaccine can still end the pandemic — just not on its own. The key is the R0. My example assumed that the average infected person infects two more people, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, due to the policies enacted to stem the tide of the virus, the effective R-value (often called Rt) is probably lower than 2 — maybe around 1.2. If that’s the case, you’d only need to get a 50 percent effective vaccine to 33 percent of the population to end the pandemic, provided we all continue to wear masks until it’s over. F. Perry Wilson A chart showing the percent of the population you need to vaccinate with a 50 percent effective vaccine with an R0 ranging from 1 to 2. Most polls suggest that around 70 percent of Americans will get a Covid-19 vaccine when it is available. A 50 percent effective vaccine may have different efficacy in different groups — if a vaccine is highly effective in young people but ineffective in older people, it would complicate matters quite a bit, as this new perspective in the journal Science notes. What about side effects? Efficacy is not the only thing to think about when you are lining up to receive a vaccine. The side effects are critical, too. Researchers categorize adverse events as serious or not depending on how severely they affect the patient. Redness and swelling at the injection site? Not serious. Anaphylaxis that lands you in the hospital? Serious. There’s no need to be too worried about non-serious adverse events. Every vaccine will have them: fevers, injection site reactions, malaise. It’s the serious adverse events that we need to worry about, and fortunately these are usually rare. Of course, it is that rareness that leads to uncertainty. Let’s say I’m Moderna and I enroll 30,000 people in a vaccine trial and not a single one develops anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. You might think that implies that the anaphylaxis rate for this vaccine is zero percent, or at least less than 1 in 30,0000. You’d be wrong. The vicissitudes of chance become clearer if we make the numbers smaller. Imagine this trial only enrolled 10 patients, and, again, none developed anaphylaxis. It would be wrong for me to conclude that anaphylaxis can never happen with this vaccine. All I can say with absolute certainty is that the anaphylaxis rate is less than 100 percent. But it could be 99 percent. I may have just been lucky enough to enroll 10 people who don’t get anaphylaxis from my vaccine. We need some way to estimate a plausible side-effect risk, given the observed data. This can be done with some simple statistics. We can ask what is the plausible range for the anaphylaxis rate given that I saw it zero times out of 10. We’ll define plausible by saying that, whatever the real rate is, I would have a greater than 2.5 percent chance of not seeing it at all in my 10 patient sample (this is a standard rate of plausibility for this type of thing). The answer: 0 to 31 percent. In other words, if the true anaphylaxis rate is 50 percent, it would be unusual to enroll 10 people and not see a single case. But if the true anaphylaxis rate is 30 percent, I’d have a shot to pitch a no-hitter (I’d get data like mine around 2.5 percent of the time). That’s a huge range, but fortunately the ongoing vaccine trials enrolled many more than 10 people. How certain can we be about side effects? For serious adverse events that don’t occur at all in the trial, we can be confident that the true rate is less than one in 10,000. That is a really small number, but not necessarily reassuring when we’re talking about vaccinating 350 million Americans (or nearly 8 billion people). Given that, you may think it’s appropriate to take a wait-and-see approach. Though there is a bit of moral hazard (if we all act this way, we’ll never learn anything and the pandemic will march on), it’s not an untenable position. In fact, since it’s extremely unlikely that mass vaccination will be available to everyone at the same time, those at highest risk of Covid-19 (including health care workers like me) will be prioritized, take on the unknown risks, and be followed closely for side effects. By the time the vaccine is ready for everyone, we should know much more. Me versus us This pandemic has brought to light a particular weakness in American society: a seemingly irreconcilable tension between a perception of individual liberty and collective sacrifice. Nowhere has this been clearer than in the case of face masks, which carry zero risk, provide modest individual protection, and have a strong societal benefit. Mediocre vaccines are more like face masks than miracles. The real benefit of getting vaccinated may be less to the individual and more to society. Sure, a 50 percent effective vaccine buys you some peace of mind. You’ve cut your risk of infection in half, and (since vaccine effectiveness counts all infections the same, regardless of how severe they are) even if you become infected you may get less sick. But in the end, if all we have is a mediocre vaccine, the goal needs to shift from providing individual protection to ending the pandemic. That means we need to start convincing people to get vaccinated now. We need to prepare the public for a less-than-ideal scenario — a mediocre vaccine — and show why it is important to get vaccinated anyway. A mediocre vaccine won’t necessarily save you, but if enough of us get it, it can save us. F.
