Trump says Obamacare replacement could take until next year

When asked whether Americans could expect a new health care plan to be rolled out by the Trump administration in an interview with Fox New's Bill O'Reilly on February 5, Trump said that "maybe it'll take until sometime into next year".

Thankfully, our Republican-led Congress and President Trump are beginning the process of dismantling Obamacare, i.e. the so-called Affordable Care Act.

During his Super Bowl interview, President Trump said that the White House might not have an Obamacare replacement plan until next year.

In other words, a significant portion of adults aren't entirely clear on the protections and benefits they could lose if Paul Ryan and the House Republicans are successful in their bid to gut Obamacare. "You have to remember, Obamacare doesn't work so we are putting in a wonderful plan", he said. Senator Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, said late Sunday that a vote to begin repealing Obamacare will take place this year, though it may not take effect until later.

"We're going to be submitting, as soon as our secretary is approved, nearly simultaneously, shortly thereafter, a plan", Trump said in January.

Currently, the repeal process is ongoing, but the coherent and cohesive replacement plan has not been agreed upon by Republicans.

Let's give Republicans a chance to introduce a new plan.

Rob Casalou, chief executive of the nonprofit St. Joseph Mercy Health System in MI, says legislators he meets with are sympathetic but noncommittal about his health system's funding concerns as repeal and replace winds its way through the legislative process.

Broken down by age, the confusion was greatest among those 18 to 29 years old - a relatively healthy age group that's critical to making the economics of Obamacare's web-based insurance exchanges work.

"Whether I do it for $30,000 or $90,000 a year, I will always be confident in the sad fact that people are always in need of help", he said. When it comes to health care policy, Democrats are usually the ones focusing on expanding coverage as much as possible, while Republicans tend to prioritize bringing down the cost of premiums. The Republicans already have missed a January 28 deadline for acting on a budget resolution created to repeal key components of Obamacare - an essential first step in ultimately replacing the program.

Congress' top tax writers left no doubt where they stand on the fate of provider taxes and fees included in the Affordable Care Act - they should be repealed immediately.

"The political uncertainty surrounding repeal is growing", Dan Holler, Heritage Action for America spokesman, told the NYT.

During the interview, Trump also criticised the nuclear deal negotiated with Iran, which led to a $16.6bn deal with United States plane-maker Boeing for 80 passenger jets. "We will fix the damage that Obamacare has caused millions of Americans".
