Trump Punts Health Care Until After 2020
This comes less than a week after DOJ seemed to call for end to ACA
President Donald Trump signaled Monday that congressional Republicans would wait until after the 2020 elections to vote on a GOP replacement for Obamacare — putting off a presumably savage legislative battle on a hot-button campaign issue until after his re-election bid.
“Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high - Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance,” the president tweeted.
“The Republicans … are developing a really great HealthCare [sic] Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare [sic],” Trump continued. “In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare [sic]. Vote will be taken right after the election when Republicans hold the Senate & win … back the House.”
