Will Trump Keep Obamacare Alive?

We’ve heard from many conservative outlets that Obamacare will not die and that the repeal is a fake.

We’ve also heard the replacement is just as worst as Obamacare.   What’s floated in Congress and in the Senate is an Obamacare lite version.  There’s talk of keeping mandates on pre-existing conditions. Pre-existing conditions are the heart and soul of Obamacare. Pre-Existing conditions is Obamacare.  Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway has signaled that Trump likes part of Obamacare.  These are not good signs of things to come for those of us who believe in limited Government.

If there is a real plan to push for Obamacare lite from the Trump administration, it will be a big disappointment for supporters.

There are little to no details coming out of the Trump administration of what his plans are. If the GOP Establishment gets its way, we have Obamacare lite. It will all depend on what Donald Trump wants to do. I hope he does the right thing and fully repeals Obamacare and does not keep it alive.

The truth is, nobody has the full picture of what will happen to Obamacare.

Trump is not offering any details of what will happen. What we do know is Trump has said “he” will be offering a plan.  Not Paul Ryan (R-WI), not Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Trump will be offering the plan. This gives conservatives some hope and time to push Republican leadership and the President-elect to do the right thing.

There’s a lot of scenarios that could possibly play out.

Trump could work with with Ryan and McConnell to put together a really bad plan that does nothing to stop the harmful effects of Obamacare. That would be a great disappointment.

Trump could easily pull a head fake.  Trump has been known for doing head fakes to outsmart the media and outsmart Democrats. We could be in a situation where Obamacare is repealed and there’s not enough votes for any kind of replacement. Seriously, what Republican wants to run on pretending to repeal but in reality keep Obamacare? This scenario is fine with me. There is no consensus to replace Obamacare with anything. Healthcare would be subject to the open market which would be the best possible scenario. Keep government out of it all together.

There’s a chance Obamacare is repealed but is replaced with real market solutions.  Steve Berman from The Resurgent listed game changing ideas that need to be implemented after Obamacare is repealed.  Real Market solutions means killing Obamacare completely.  Let’s call and write our congressmen, Senators and President-Elect to make sure that happens.
