President-elect Donald Trump says his plan to replace the nation's health care law will include "insurance for everybody."

Trump made the comment in an interview with the Washington Post published on Sunday.


President-elect Donald Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody,” while also vowing to force drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices in Medicare and Medicaid.

As he has developed a replacement package, Trump said he has paid attention to critics who say that repealing Obamacare would put coverage at risk for more than 20 million Americans covered under the law’s insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”

How will we ever survive without Obamacare?


I can't really say much without hearing Trump's plan. I am looking forward to hearing about it.

Insurance for everybody? Well, that's what Obamacare is trying to do so why get rid of it? Oh right, they don't like Obama because reasons so it has to go. Fun fact, Obamacare is very similar to health coverage former GOP'ers wanted to enact in the past so it's funny to see them now say how much they don't like it.

But at the end of the day, Trump has no plan and millions will be given the middle finger because of partisan politics.

Trump is the only president who actually started doing things before he officially started as president. Most of them just sit around and pick their people and forget about the job they need to do.

So Obamacare 2.0

Watch all his supporters cheer him on.....all those anti-socialism , anti Obamacare , "rah rah repeal" cheerleaders that bough this as part of his campaign policy

Watch for incoming excuses

"Kool-aid!" "Get your Kool-aid here!"

I remember sayin " trump is not a conservative and he's for Obamacare" and all his supporters lambasted me and told me how much he hated socialized medicine and he is going to repeal it and do away with this sort of thing....

I should make a chalk board so every morning I can wake up, smile/cringe and mark one down for all of us that were right about this guy

That would actually be a wonderful thing. If it were true.

Here comes Santa Claus with free health insurance for everyone!

I hope it's true, but where's the plan, or is this, once again, a hollow promise that people blind supporters will swallow whole?


I can't really say much without hearing Trump's plan


Probably because there really isn't one.

What has Trump done? He's not the one putting this plan onto paper, his lawyers and legal team are and I guarantee you they're in the insurance companies' pockets just like Obama's people were.

Let's see what the plan says before we start calling it the greatest thing since sliced bread. For all we know it's not going to be any better than Obamacare, but then again it might be good. Let's not count our chickens before they hatch though, that usually just leads to disappointment.

well, let`s wait until he is actually sworn in before we say he failed.
just because a lot of people can`t think of a better way to insure everyone doesn`t mean there isn`t a better way and doesn`t mean that trump can`t find a better way.

If he doesn't get rid of the mandate then anything he does is moot.

The eggs I buy are not capable of making a chicken because they have been refrigerated. I count on buying chickens at the store.


Obamacare isn't working, the price is rising too fast. Socialized healthcare should be the way we go but it appears it will never happen. Too much money to be made off of sick people and too many brainwashed people who believe socialized medicine is inferior. I wonder how the Pharma and medical industries pulled that deception off, I know people who live in Canada and in Europe and they have good healthcare. Here you have to go to the doctors two or three times before they do anything.

Universal health care in the U.S. is inevitable.

All that is happening now is the Affordable Care Act hit an iceberg and started taking on water. The democrats are arguing in favor of going down with the ship while the GOP wants to dive overboard into frigid waters with no life vest and no plan of rescue.

Isn't that the lie we were sold originally? That you seem to defend? Pass it to see what's in it?

Something about a pot and a kettle and black, how does that go again?
