Will people support Trumpcare while denouncing Obamacare, even if it's effective

    Will people support Trumpcare while denouncing Obamacare, even if it's effectively the same plan?

    There are a large number of people who dislike Obama and accordingly dislike Obamacare. When Trump takes the reigns of power, one of his plans is to appeal Obamacare. If he and his cabinet can find a better solution, great. If however, he and they cannot, the likely result will simply be to re-brand it as Trumpcare. My question is, what is your opinion on whether or not the same people who denounced Obamacare will support Trumpcare, even if the two plans are effectively the same?

    There is only one item to be saved from Obamacare, and that is pre existing conditions. Which could have been solved with a single definitive law, that could have been implemented immediately, instead of Obamacare which after 8 years is still not fully implemented. That will take until 2020.

    I would be against naming the new plan after Trump.
    BTW, the fact that Obamacare enables parents to carry their adult children on their plan is a weakness not a strength.

    If adult children can't afford their own healthcare insurance, that means the economy is very bad. If the economy was good, then these adult children would be able to get jobs that could get, and pay for health insurance. These jobs would also give them the funds to payback their student loans.

    The adult children of this century have been screwed by 28 years of bad presidents by both the democrats and the republicans.

    I am once again, not a dem, or repub. I just like Trump basically because he is not one of those politicians that brought down the US.

    The congress and the federal workers in the US have better retirement, health insurance, vacation, sick leave, personal leave, job security, and other benefits than those found in the private sector, Yet, it is the people that pay for these benefits.

    Don't you think that private employees should have parity with government employees?

    You can't make America Sick Again because it never got better, not in the private sector. And in the public sector nothing bad happens to them.
    The government workers don't trust their own government, otherwise why did they form public unions on their employer?
    That wouldn't work in the private sector, because private business can't print money, and unlike the federal government they can't go bankrupt.

    My point is that the retirement and healthcare for the people in the country need to be leveled, and not have government workers getting special treatment.The lowest GS1 step 1 federal worker gets around $11 an hour. But the benefits are spectacular compared to private sector workers making the same hourly wage.

    Finally, your supposition of what Trump is going to do is just liberal spin.
    Feel free to delete my comment for any reason.

      That is why Dems are the problem and the reason the country is in decline. I guess you think the Obama Executive Orders are good for the country. AP y didn't you answer my comment instead of giving your sound bite.

      You don't seem to have a grasp on reality & the truth. It is a fait accompli:
      And your Hollywood "stars" just don't want Trump to build the wall, and stop their daily drug source. How many celebrities in Hwood don't use drugs. Your facts are

      I am sorry, but not only are your comments not relating to facts, but until you fix your cap key on your computer, I am not going to read your stuff. Not only because of the caps but because you are writing in some alien language.

    Obummercare is unconstitutional and is an infringement on the rights of individuals.  Requiring people to purchase insurance is wrong.  Requiring businesses to provide insurance for all full time employees if wrong.  Using expanded Medicare tax dollars for insurance subsidies is wrong.  To the extent that Trumpcare does these things, it is wrong.  Many other bennies that are bundled in with Obummercare would be acceptable as part of Obummercare.

      SORRY Hxprof, but ObamaCare is as CONSTITUTIONAL if not MORE So than your "RIGHT 2 Own a Gun" ~ The SUPREME Court has Ruled on BOTH ~ Despite what CON-Man P Ryan says, HealthCare must B Mandatory with Subsidies 2 COVER Pre-Existing Conditions

      Sorry AP, but despite what the Supreme Court ruled, powers that are not expressly given to the federal government are powers belonging to the states.  The US government CAN'T make healthcare mandatory - it's unconstitutional.

      OK Hxprof, if U INSIST that ObamaCare is UNCONSTITUTIONAL when the U.S. Supreme COURT RATIFIED it that's your Prerogative because they are just WORDz &, i'll just say "The RIGHT to OWN a Gun" is UNCONSTITUTIONAL ~ I guess we're now at PARITY
