Will the Trump administration be successful in having the ACA-Obummercare-repealed and replaced?
Trump promised during his campaign to repeal and replace Obummercare, but of course he can't do that by dictate. Will Congress cooperate with his agenda?
In time, yes. Trump cannot repeal the whole thing in one fell swoop. After all, the "Affordable Care Act" is a huge, bulky document with many layers of "red tape." But Obamacare can be replaced in time. My son had to pay a hefty sum for choosing not to sign up, while others who did sign up are now facing huge, unaffordable premiums. That so-called Affordable Care Act needs to be replaced with something that really is affordable and efficient, but which does not punish physicians for doing their jobs. Trump intends to keep two aspects of the plan. But like I said, repealing the entire thing will take a while, perhaps a few years or longer.
That "hefty sum" is an unconstitutional penalty pushed on us by SC Justice Roberts (he calls it a tax). It will be pleasing to see this thing gutted ASAP, though I think Trump still wants to require all to purchase catastrophic policies.
the mandate was an idea from the heritage foundation, and its in romneycare, too. it only became"big gubmint forcing me by the throat" when obama incorporated it. more hypocricy from the me and only me crowd.
Regardless of it's orgins, it's unconstitutional. And the state of Mass. is allowed to do that; the federal government cannot.
well, it was your supreme court, and your heritage foundation, and your mitt romney. beats me why you only malign my prez obama (not really)
