The nightmare and abject failure known as Obamacare will be quickly replaced.
While the liberal mainstream media pretends this is something for the masses to panic about, the truth is the program was never popular to begin with, was plagued by a nightmarish rollout, and was on a death spiral even before Trump took over.
President Trump tweeted early Friday that the repeal and replacement of former-President Obama’s health law is moving “fast,” after news reports indicated that Republicans are divided on how much of the law to repeal.
The Trump administration took steps Wednesday intended to calm jittery insurance companies and make tax compliance with former President Barack Obama’s health law less burdensome for some people.
But the changes could lead to policies with higher annual deductibles, according to the administration’s own proposal. That seems to undercut President Donald Trump’s assurance in a recent Washington Post interview that his plan would mean “lower numbers, much lower deductibles.”
The moves announced separately by the Health and Human Services Department and the IRS don’t amount to sweeping changes to the Affordable Care Act. That would fall to Congress, where Republicans are struggling to reach consensus over how to deliver on their promise to repeal and replace the health law. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is expected to present elements of a plan to GOP lawmakers Thursday morning.
Despite the long delays by the Democrats in finally approving Dr. Tom Price, the repeal and replacement of ObamaCare is moving fast!
