Let’s just say Somebody did Not know it could be so complicated. YOU and every Republican who said “Repeal and Replace”.
President reaffirms Republican commitment to repealing Affordable Care Act amid uncertainty over replacement and rising support for ‘Obamacare’
Public approval for the healthcare law reached a new high last week, a Pew Research Center poll showed. The poll found 54% of Americans approved of the law and 43% disapproved, a significant change from a low of 35% approval in 2011, just after the law’s passage.
“We have come up with a solution that’s really, really, I think, very good,” Trump said. “It’s an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.”
Donald Trump told a room full of state governors on Monday that “nobody knew” replacing the massive Affordable Care Act, which expanded health coverage to 20 million Americans, would prove to be so “complicated”. WOW!
A leaked House Republican ACA replacement plan proposed major changes to Medicaid, including changing the program to a so-called block grant, or a set cash allocations for states that experts agree would amount to a huge cut in spending. This even though Trump has promised not to touch Medicare and Social Security. So apparently those who are poor will have to take the hit with no health care. One example of a politicians dismissal of expanding to poorer Americans real health care is Rick Scott of Florida, who has advocated a full repeal of the ACA law. With him as governor, Florida refused to expand Medicaid under the ACA, even though the federal government would have paid for the expansion. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, an expansion would provide insurance to an estimated 279,000 Floridians. Again, WOW!
