The ‘Party of Healthcare’ Has No Healthcare Plan

The ‘Party of Healthcare’ Has No Healthcare Plan April 1, 2019

Trump is now claiming that the Republican party will now be the “party of healthcare,” but their only plan is to repeal Obamacare and then later replace it with “something beautiful.” But they don’t actually have a healthcare plan, no bills in Congress and no consensus on what should replace it.

Republicans have no intention of heeding President Trump’s urgent demands for a new health-care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, fearing the potential political damage that such a proposal could cause in 2020 and hoping he will soon drop the idea, according to interviews with numerous GOP lawmakers, legislative staffers and administration aides.

Not only is there no such health-care overhaul in the works on Capitol Hill — there are no plans to make such a plan.

Senate Republicans, who were caught off guard by Trump’s rapid shift to focus on health care last week, said the White House would need to make the first move by putting forward its own proposal. But administration officials said nothing firm is in the works.

One would have to be a major fool to believe that if they repeal Obamacare, they’ll replace it with something better — if they replace it at all. Which explains why only hardcore Trump supporters believe this will happen. You have a better chance of winning the lottery while being struck by lightning.
