Why don't Republicans and conservatives support major health care reform and student debt relief within the United States? ?

If more Republicans did that, then more younger people might actually considering voting for them

    It is not the government's role to provide health care - the free market does a better job of meeting all supply and demand than a government bureaucracy - note the inefficiency of the VA hospitals as an example. Also why in the world would it be the government's responsibility to pay off someone's debt that they have incurred by themself? they received the education or training right? A basic fact about the government is that in order to 'give' money to one group of people (ex: people with student debt) they have to 'take' money from another group of people (taxes/ taxpayers) - and so how is it moral to make people who got no education - pay their tax money to people who did receive education?

    The amusing part is that the other party doesn't really support that stuff either, regardless of the empty rhetoric. They had a super majority '07-'09 and didn't use it do any of the things you want.

    You created the student debt now pay it back it’s not up to hard working families to pay for you, they have to pay for their own lives. Get a job and pay it back if you partied your school years away get one Of Obama’s shovel ready jobs

    We most certainly do. Health care under the Obama plan wasn't affordable. Even Medicare costs more now. And, it was mandatory. Before Obamacare, there were Free Clinics. Student debt is your problem. You're the one that signed & you're the one that got the money. That's your debt. Be a man & pay it. Let's be clear: A government that's big enough to pay your education is also big enough to decide who will go & what they'll be.

    Do you think it's right that people who didn't go to college and don't have the boosted salary that a college degree offers should pay taxes so that the student debts of those who did go to college wouldn't have to pay back as much?

    Where's your sense of fairness? Why do you think that it's okay for younger people to make themselves a burden on society?

    Both parties support health care reform. But if people entered into a loan agreement they need to pay it back.

    Politics today is decided by sponsorship.  If you want to get elected, you have to cultivate and serve big sponsors.  It's really a money-raising contest.

    The Republicans are afraid to scare off the health care industry.  They are among the biggest providers of political sponsorship.  They care more about the financial health of the health insurance industry than they do about the health of Americans.  But even Obamacare was carefully designed not to hurt the health insurance industry.

    Student debt today is bigger than credit card debt.  This, of course, keeps banks and other lending institutions in business, and they also are big campaign sponsors. 

    Also, not to be missed, Republicans want fewer college grads in the future, because in their vision of the future, fewer smarter, more capable people are needed!  The well-to-do want their kids to go to college, and not to have to compete with the children of the rabble.  The wealthy believe their wealth ought to entitle them to certain privileges.  Education is the driver of 'social mobility' and the wealthy DON'T want social mobility!

    Of course republicans care about health care reform.  In 2016 Trump campaigned on major health care reform.   He promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something BETTER.    It's truly part of the reason he was elected.

    And yet here we are four years later and it's pretty clear he has no plan.   But I
