Majority leader Mitch McConnell has said that the party's representatives will swiftly repeal the healthcare legislation, which has guaranteed care to millions of people. He made the statement after it emerged that Donald Trump would be the new President of the United States, and that the Republicans had kept control of the legislature.

"It's pretty high on our agenda as you know," Mr McConell said in the aftermath of the election, according to Politico. "I would be shocked if we didn't move forward and keep our commitment to the American people."

I don't know why people are knocking Trump supporters. Great things are about to happen such as:

1. The repeal of Obamacare

2. The normalization of relations between the U.S. and Russia

3. Tightening up the borders

If just those three things are accomplished and nothing else, America has won big with Trump versus Hillary Clinton. Why isn't that apparent to everyone on this forum?

Major changes are definitely coming...

Change Ahead: Shifts on Immigration, Climate, Health and Taxes

I realize there are huge ideological differences between Trump supporters and liberals. I think we can all agree on the following.

Obamacare is a disaster.

War with Russia would have been a disaster.

Illegal immigrants are bad for America.

Really think you need to mention 'repeal and REPLACE' . There is no intention to leave Americans with nothing.

Repeal Affordable Care Act:
Okay, so we go back to people not being required to have health insurance. They drop the insurance. They still go to the hospitals and get treated. In order to make up for the losses due to non payment, your insurance premiums skyrocket.
So, they will get free health care at your expense instead of at their own. I've never seen so many people crying about NOT being forced to take care of other people. I'm sure it will be better once its renamed to "Trump For Better Health" plan.
I hope you thought that one thru.

He tweeted "repeal and replace", but he also said the following. Repealing and replacing Obamacare are two different things. Considering how hard it was to get Obamacare passed, I wouldn't bet on a replacement being passed any time soon (possibly even in my lifetime).


At a rally Tuesday in Sanford, Florida, Trump said repealing Obamacare is Priority No. 1 and would be his first act as president.

Trump said he would "ask Congress to put a bill on my desk to get rid of this disastrous" program, adding "it will be so easy," WFTV reported.

Of course its sad that I don’t have much confidence that Trump will replace Obamacare with something better


The inhuman want to kill a bunch of people and just repeal it and damage millions of Americans out of some dogma.


Anybody who wants to see that is pretty selfish and sick in my opinion


As imperfect as Obamacare is it has done some great good by getting people insured. To just throw those people to the wolves is demonic and inhuman and I have NO RESPECT FOR ANYONE WHO WOULD DO THAT

They only thing McConnell wants to replace it with is assisted suicide, I am sorry, I am willing to give Trump a chance, but Mitch is a weasel.

Sanders already had the plan underway for single payer.

Single payer has proven Globally to keep medical costs within reason.

We don't need to reinvent the wheel. A working model is already out there. We can tweak it to make it American but that's about it.

Not only should obamacare be 100 percent trashed, but take out the middle man, clinton put in office back in the 90s. a visit to the doctor is between you and your doctor, period! however, sadly doctors have to go through so much paper work and calls to make and explain to a third party why he thinks you need a certain medication or why he thinks you need a cat scan or surgery!

ENOUGH ALREADY! GET RID OF THE THIRD PARTIES GIVE CONTROL BACK TO THE DOCTORS.

if they wanted to give free medical care it was already set up years ago with something called medicaid and guess what? omg that is actually free. yeah, no out of money expense.....obamacare, just to make you go poor and put you on the streets!

clintoncare babysit all doctors because hey they didn't go to college for eight to twelve years, but the insurance did and knows way more than the doctors.

ARE YOU SERIOUS! GET RID OF THE MIDDLE MAN, GET RID OF IT ALL AND PUT IT BACK THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE CLINTIONS AND BUSHES AND OBAMA! WHEN YOU WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND IT WAS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR, PERIOD!

Read it all if you want to know the fact about this issue

www.npr.org...





"President-elect Donald Trump has promised over and over in recent months that he will repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also called Obamacare, when he reaches the White House.

"Obamacare is a disaster. You know it. We all know it," Trump said at a debate last month. "We have to repeal it and replace it with something absolutely much less expensive."

Now that Trump will move into the Oval Office in January, the question is whether he'll be able to completely repeal the six-year-old law that has had an impact on every aspect of the U.S. health care system.


"It's a challenge for a Trump presidency," says Jack Hoadley, a research professor at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute. "To get a true repeal and replace through, he needs 60 votes in the Senate." That's the minimum number of votes needed to overcome a filibuster in the Senate.

"Repeal of the law is absolutely going to come up, and the only potential defense against that would be a Democratic filibuster — if Republicans even allow a filibuster," says Austin Frakt, a health economist who runs the blog The Incidental Economist.

But even if Trump can't repeal the Affordable Care Act in its entirety, there's a lot he can do through rule-making and smaller legislative changes to weaken the law and mold it more to his liking.

"They are probably, practically speaking, talking about leaving the ACA, as is, in place," Hoadley says. "Then he can change the ACA to have it showcase the kinds of plans he wants to see in place."

During his campaign, Trump proposed a series of measures that he said will allow people to buy affordable health insurance policies outside of the Obamacare exchanges.

Those measures include promoting tax-free health savings accounts that might help individuals save money to pay for health care costs and allowing people to deduct the cost of their premiums on their personal income tax returns. Trump has said he also wants to allow insurers to sell policies across state lines to boost competition.
Trump could alter the Obamacare exchanges to promote high-deductible health plans and health savings accounts to get a result similar to what he's looking for.

"He could change the details of how the marketplaces work," Hoadley says. "It's all worked out through regulation. You could just suspend the regulations."

Alternatively, Trump could embrace the health care plan promoted by House Speaker Paul Ryan, which starts with repealing the Affordable Care Act. It includes many of the same principles as Trump's plan, but has more details.

One of the biggest challenges Trump faces is that about about 20 million people today have health coverage because of the Affordable Care Act, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. The uninsured rate hit an all-time low of 8.9 percent this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

An analysis of Trump's plan by The Commonwealth Fund estimates it would increase the number of people who lack health insurance by as many as 25 million, and increase the federal budget by as much as $41 billion. That's because much of Trump's plan involves giving tax breaks to encourage people to buy insurance while taking away the requirement to buy insurance — a mandate embedded in Obamacare.

Even if Trump fails to repeal the law, Frakt says, he could easily destroy it from within by refusing to fund it through the budget process.

"The only thing stopping that is, it's a big deal to throw millions of people off insurance without offering something in return," Frakt says.If Trump is right that his health savings accounts are a good enough replacement, then he'll be able to get rid of Obamacare through a vote or through neglect"

I agree, single payer is the best but the GOP will never allow it...

Not sure of your experience but after Obamacare went to effect my insurance premiums sky rocketed by hundreds of dollar a Month and my deductible went up,

Also other family members that had no insurance continued with no insurance.

However the top 3 health insurance companies who helped create Obamacare had 45 degree profit earning increase after decades of stagnate growth.

Obamacare is a corporate cash cow for the big dogs.

Obamacare is not healthcare it's authoritarian forced insurance. I would have prefered a socialist healthcare without the greedy corporate insurance companies in the middle, rather than that bs.

The way I see it, there are a lot more people being hurt by Obamacare than being helped by it. Here's the broad picture:

Three Ways Obamacare Is Impairing Economic Growth

Here's a different view:

Bill Clinton calls Obamacare 'the craziest thing in the world,' later tries to walk it back

A country can't destroy itself in the name of helping the less fortunate. There are better solutions.

"The only thing stopping that is, it's a big deal to throw millions of people off insurance without offering something in return," Frakt says.

That came up with the King v. Burwell case. If the GOP would have gotten the decision it wanted in that case, they were going to gradually defund Obamacare, not do it all at once. I believe that's the kind of thing that Frakt was referring to.
