The US President-elect Donald trump “the first” in office will cancel a program to provide insurance to 30 million U.S. citizens (Obamacare) and replace it. This was stated by an elected Vice-President Mike Pence, reports Reuters.
“The first step is the fulfillment of the promises to repeal Obamacare and replace it with healthcare reform that will reduce the cost of health insurance without growth [funds] government,” said Pence in a press conference.
Trump intends to achieve a smooth transition to “market” the health insurance system. The speaker of the U.S. house of representatives Paul Ryan said that innovations will take into account the interests of the citizens of the United States. He assured that he has many ideas regarding the replacement of this reform, but did not give specific data.
In his Twitter the President-elect earlier in the day saidthat Republicans “need to be careful that Democrats can’t run Obamacare, with its poor coverage and a large increase in insurance premiums”.
Obamacare repeal was one of the campaign promises trump. However, after the election, on 9 November, the US President-elect has stated that he does not intend to completely abandon this program. Think it prompted a conversation with the current President Barack Obama, said trump.
He said he plans to keep at least two provisions of this program. We are talking about the current ban insurers to refuse their services because of the patient’s health status and opportunities for parents to take care of the health of children through its own policies within a certain time. The President-elect after the election emphasized their desire to move quickly to amend the provisions of the program.
