Well well, this is certainly an interesting twist. It seems that Trump's meeting with Obama went well!



Donald Trump has said that he might not repeal Obamacare, perhaps his biggest campaign promise.

The President-elect performed the apparent U-turn after his meeting with Barack Obama at the White House this week, he has said.

Mr Trump is going to look at "amending" the Affordable Care Act, rather than completely repealing it, he told the Wall Street Journal.

I'm wondering it Trump may be playing his populist game again?

I wonder how many of his supporters will go along with this?

The 2 provisions he is talking about should be in any medical plan. Pre-existing and children getting benefits at extended ages.

I've been a pro trump supporter all along and agree with both of those provisions. I believe most Americans do.

Good for him if he follows through.

Well, this should shut up some people -- like my BFF.

Wait, no it won't. He'll still doomsday and so will the rest of them.

Haha wait till he gets in office! Something has to be done about obama care regardless. Even if they keep it its going to require work to make it work.

"Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced," Trump told the newspaper. "I told him I will look at his suggestions, and out of respect, I will do that."

So long as the mandatory existence tax is repealed, I am content. It is literally the one and only thing he needs to do. Remove the mandatory existence tax.

If he doesn't fix Obamacare then there might be a whole different demographics of the USA out in the streets (peaceful) protesting.

The thing is, the ACA is now so ingrained in the sytem, on so many levels that even a total repeal would take at least a few years to really get rid of it.

Amending it might be the smarter way to go.

Makes sense to review it first unless you have a plan to replace it fixing it sounds better

What difference does it make?

Mr Trump said that he may well keep at least two of the main provisions of the healthcare bill. He said that he is favouring retaining a key part of Obamacare that stops insurers from refusing to cover people because they have existing conditions, and another that lets parents add coverage for their children to their own policies.

“I like those very much,” he told the paper.

Yep.

Now that we know what's in it, it can be fixed. It's obviously in dire need of fixing, so I like the fact that it's being discussed.

This is why he needs to be given a chance. Maybe, just maybe, he might surprise some people, me among them.

Oh, so he's lying to us.

OK. That sounds like the Trump I despise. Phew, I was worried there for a moment...

My hope is that he can see clearly the areas in need of fixing in all national and foreign policy and make changes.

We will see how this pans out..but it's not surprising.

As with every president, Obama probably sat him down and explained the reality of the situation..
"look I know you made these promises , I made promiSes too but the reality is you aren't in charge and your not doing half this crap "

Just like Happened to obama.

I'll come back and fix the vid when I'm not mobile

I'll wait and see what Dr. Ben Carson has to say on the subject.

As did Carson, saying the replacement must be in place before you get rid of the ACA. Maybe these guys might not F up the country as bad as I thought.
