It was good to hear.
Many of the Republican Nominees did not have the guts to say that they would get rid of the horrid Obamacare fiasco. When Trump said that he would, most could only half believe that anything done in Washington could be undone. But, it seems that the future administration has every intention to continue to try and get it done.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence declared that the first order of business for the new Trump administration will be repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
“First order of business is to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Pence declared at a press conference on Capitol Hill with GOP leadership on Wednesday morning.
The Vice President-elect is spending the day in Washington, D.C. meeting with Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss how to repeal and replace the healthcare law.
This is good news as premiums are on the rise everywhere. And in some places, they are absolutely skyrocketing. The system put in place by Obama has been working just as it was designed and will soon leave America with only a government option.
But, we are not going to see a return to the old system. And this is the part that should raise some concern. Trump is not going to repeal the Affordable Care Act; he is planning to replace it as well.
What does he plan to replace it with? I dare say, most pro-Constitution people are not going to be happy with any mandatory plan. While we have heard little about what Trump will do about healthcare, we all should ask if he should do anything but get the federal government out of it all together.
But we know that since the camel is inside the tent, we will have no luck pushing him out again.
