Jeb Bush thinks Apple Watch can replace Obamacare


Jeb Bush is in love with Apple Watch

Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush hasn’t officially announced that he’s running for office, but he’s already hitting the campaign trail and he’s brining his Apple Watch with him.

In Tempe Arizona today, Jeb held a town hall meeting at the Chamber of Commerce and stopped to rave about his Apple Watch. It’s so amazing, he says he even thinks it should replace Obamacare.

“I think we should repeal Obamacare,” Bush said, before pointing to his Apple Watch. “On this device in five years will be applications that will allow me to manage my healthcare in ways that, five years ago, were not even possible.

How Jeb plans to use Apple Watch to completely replace affordable heatlth insurance isn’t clear. Will every US citizen get a free subsidized Apple Watch? How will that make my medical bills cheaper?  Can a watch provide doctor-quality medical care from my wrist?

Jeb’s not worried about those details yet as long as he can win over a few voters by saying he’ll kill Obamacare with a cool tech gadget.

Bush also didn’t say whether he’s already cancelled his insurance coverage now that his watch can track how many steps he takes per day. Considering Apple Watch costs more than 20 office-visit copays though, we recommend holding off on pulling the plug on insurance until Jony adds tissue-repair technology to the Apple Watch 7.
