Now Trump says he meant to keep Obamacare. Say what?
President Trump has a new spin on why Obamacare’s still around: He decided to keep the law instead of "kill" it.
“I had a decision to make,” Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd yesterday. “I could have politically killed Obamacare. I decided not to do it. But still it's not good. We're going to come up with great health care if we win the House, the Senate and the presidency.”
That’s quite the claim from the president, who has privately and publicly castigated congressional Republicans and staff for failing to help him deliver on one of his biggest promises in 2016, to replace the Affordable Care Act.
A couple of thoughts -
Has there been any noise on trump's/GOP's efforts to have the courts declare the ACA unconstitutional and it is not what trump hoped to hear?
Did McConnell finally get through his thick skull that the GOP has tried for 10 years to come up with something better and cheaper and they've realized it can't be done?
Sure, I'd love for the ACA to have cheaper premiums and smaller deductibles, but after cutting all its funding because it's sooooo socialist, how the fcuk are they going to explain that they're going to give their program even more funding? They sure as heck aren't going to raise taxes on the rich.
