Obamacare Replacement Plan Will Insure All

A couple of things: 1) Republicans should care whether people have health insurance or not; 2) Insuring everyone is not realistic; 3) If Trump is near completion of a replacement plan, it is news to Capitol Hill and everyone working on this issue on the outside.

The rally comes just days after house republicans took the first steps to repeal Obamacare by approving a budget measure already passed by the senate. There, Republicans hold 52 seats in the 100-seat chamber and can easily vote down Mr Obama's law.

Some 30 million Americans have secured health insurance under the Affordable Healthcare Act. "If you jump through the right hoops you get something; if you don't jump through the right hoops you don't get it, and I don't think that's right. That's not going to happen with us".

"It's not going to be their plan", Trump told the Post, referring to the people covered under the current law.

"It will be in a much simplified form", Trump said. There's no reason to be anxious because those who will be covered under the new law "can expect to have great health care" that will be "much less expensive and much better".

Trump warned Republicans that if the party splinters or slows his agenda, he is ready to use the power of the presidency - and Twitter - to usher his legislation to passage.

In Michigan, Sanders said Congress needs to think of the tens of millions of Americans now insured under Obamacare that could die if insurance was taken away from them.

Trump did not give specific details about the new bill, but said he plans to go after pharmaceutical companies and insist they negotiate directly with the government on Medicare and Medicaid health plans on lower costs.

Trump told the Post he expects Congress to move quickly and cohesively in the next few weeks on healthcare and other priorities, including tax cuts and a border wall with Mexico.

"I want Faso to know we are the boss", Carucci said.

"I can't help but think back to when we were debating this law in 2010".

"Show us the beef, show us the alternative", House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said after the Congressional vote, according to Politico.

Democrats have heaped pressure on Republicans as they grapple with the complicated politics around replacing Obamacare by holding rallies around the country highlighting the benefits of the law.
