Donald trump urged the Republicans to repeal Obamacare Obamacare “next week”, and also immediately type in a replacement. Earlier, the repeal of Obamacare was called “the first” trump on the post of the President of the United States
The US President-elect Donald trump urged the Republicans to proceed to immediate cancellation of the program to provide insurance to 30 million U.S. citizens (Obamacare). According to trump, after cancellation, it should be immediately replaced by another health care reform. About this trump said in an interview with The New York Times.
“We must get down to business. Obamacare was a disaster,” said trump.
According to the newspaper, the position of the trump undermines the plans of the leaders of the Republican party who wanted to abandon Obamacare, but planned to wait two to three years prior to the introduction of alternative systems of health care. In addition, some representatives of the Republican party not want to vote on repealing Obama’s reforms until then, until an alternative project.
Elected Vice-President Mike Pence said at the beginning of January 2017, what first, what trump would do as President will be to repeal Obamacare. Then Penny said that it will be replaced by “another health care reform that will reduce the cost of health insurance without growth [funds] government”.
The abolition of Obamacare was uncertain, writes the NYT. Trump demanded a vote “likely next week” and said that “replacing Obamacare will be fast and synchronous, shortly after [the abolition of]”.
“I feel that the cancellation and replacement must go together, very simple. I think the Democrats should want to change Obamacare, they can’t live with it and have to go with [us],” said trump to the newspaper. He added that waiting two weeks would be for him “long”.
