Trump Makes Bold Promise – Obamacare Replacement Incoming

( – Once again, former President Donald Trump promised that if he returns to the White House in 2024, he will end former President Barrack Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) despite his past failed attempts.

Trump, as usual, took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to make public remarks. Trump wrote that the ACA, more commonly referred to as “Obamacare,” is “too expensive” and “not good healthcare.” The former president made the post on Christmas Day as Congress has attempted, over and over, without success, to repeal the act signed into law by Obama in March 2010.

Although the GOP has mostly abandoned its efforts to overturn Obamacare, Trump pledged to “come up with a much better” plan that’s “less expensive.” He assured his voters they would “be happy, not sad” about his alternative.

Trump commented on the ACA last month, vowing that it would be “a priority” of his administration to roll out a healthcare plan “for the American people” that’s better than Obamacare. He said it isn’t “a matter of cost,” but “of health,” and promised that his plan will be “one of the best… anywhere in the world” while Obamacare is “one of the worst.”

Republican lawmakers seem to have lost interest in revamping the fight to overturn Obamacare. Senate Health Committee member Bill Cassidy of Louisiana stated recently that replacing Obama’s signature act is “unlikely to happen” and Senate Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota said that although he advocates for lowering costs and making the system “more efficient,” he’s “not sure” he wants to know what Trump’s proposal is.

A judge in Texas who previously ruled that Obamacare was unconstitutional sided with a Christian dentist and a conservative activist back in March, striking down a significant aspect of the ACA regarding mandatory coverage of HIV prevention and contraception. The decision, made on religious grounds, challenged the healthcare law’s requirement that insurers must cover preventative care measures, sparking concerns from Democrat-run states and the Biden administration.

Around 16 million enrolled in ACA plans for 2023, which was 13% higher than the year prior. Trump has promised to roll back Obamacare in the past, but his attempts were all unsuccessful.
