Twitter reacts to Trump, Clinton's healthcare talk during debate

The second presidential debate brought plenty of fireworks, including a slew of healthcare talking points that drew reactions from think tanks, health policy experts, reporters and more.

Here's a sampling of their takes on the debate:

Dan Diamond, author of Politico Pulse, noted that even American Enterprise Institute, a right-of-center think tank, has criticized Donald Trump’s healthcare proposals.

Diamond added he’d have to re-watch the debate to see if he missed any key policy points.

Atul Gawande, M.D., a surgeon, writer, and public health researcher, echoed Diamond’s take.

Scott Gottlieb, a physician and fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, corrected Hillary Clinton on a possible equivocation when she described some of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.

Gottleib also seemed to side with Trump's claim that Clinton supports an eventual move to a single-payer system.

Regarding Trump's proposal to sell health plans across state lines, Bob Kocher, former healthcare special adviser to President Barack Obama and current venture capitalist, wasn't buying it. Yale University health economist Zack Cooper agreed.

Avalere Health’s Caroline Peterson and Alliance of Community Health Plans’ Ceci Connolly debunked Trump’s claims about how much insurance premiums are rising on the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

When pressed on whether he would retain the individual mandate, Trump did not offer a clear response. This prompted an observation from The Wall Street Journal's Janet Adamy.

Sarah Kliff, senior editor at Vox, provided color on healthcare costs and the impact of the Affordable Care Act on the federal budget.

Harold Pollack, a researcher at University of Chicago, basically agreed with Kliff.

Adrianna MacIntyre, managing editor at The Incidental Economist, had a bit harsher criticism. 

Larry Levitt, a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation, added that Trump’s talking point to sell health plans across state lines wouldn't benefit the system.

Levitt noted, however, that premiums are up quite a bit in some marketplaces, but that on average they are much lower.
