It’s been a long time since Obamacare went into effect. And it has only hurt millions of hard-working Americans. Both Democrats and Republicans want to replace it. But only one side has a plan that won’t bankrupt the country. President Trump took to Twitter to lay out his party’s healthcare agenda. But whether or not it happens depends on one huge factor.
Republicans have been promising to get rid of Obamacare for many years. In fact, many Republicans won their seats in Congress campaigning on a platform of repealing and replacing the broken healthcare program. Yet after years of Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, Republicans failed to repeal it.
They had a chance in 2017, but Republicans like John McCain (who was a known anti-Trumper) voted the measure down.
Now, with only the Senate in Republican hands, it seems unlikely they will get rid of the broken system anytime soon.
But there are bigger risks at stake than just getting rid of the burdensome Obamacare. Democrats already have another plan to ruin our healthcare system. “Medicare for All” is their latest train wreck. This plan will provide universal healthcare for all Americans (and anyone who’s within our borders). Sounds good?
Not when you see the price tag; an estimated $32 TRILLION dollars. Where do you think the Democrats are going to get that kind of money? Not from the rich, I can tell you that.
Democrats running for president right now are pushing for a healthcare program that will put health insurance companies out of business, create massive taxes on the working and middle classes, and bankrupt our government. Not to mention drive good doctors and medical professionals out of the industry (as they will no longer be able to earn a living).
The allure of free stuff, though, is too strong for some voters. If we do nothing, enough freeloaders will elect anyone into office, as long as they give them things. President Trump knows this, so he took to Twitter to assure Americans that the Republicans have a much better plan.
“Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare!” Trump tweeted. “Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance. The Republicans are developing a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare.
In a series of tweets, Trump laid out the Republican’s agenda for fixing our healthcare system. He vowed to protect the private health insurance used by 180 million Americans. Among the goals they are seeking is to create a plan with lower premiums and deductibles than Obamacare. In addition, it will protect pre-existing conditions and be far less expensive than the existing program.
Anything Republicans put forward would have to eliminate the complicated and problematic system Obama created. It would have to lower the tax burden, while providing more options for consumers. All that is possible, if conservatives craft the legislation. Instead of pushing government involvement—with greater government control—they need to stress free market values that create competition among insurance providers, which will leader to better service and lower prices.
It’s that simple. But we know the Democrat won’t support that kind of plan. Their solution is to force Americans to accept healthcare from a government agency. And we know how well those are run!
The catch is when Trump plans on passing this new program. According to the president, it won’t happen until after 2020.
“In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare,” Trump continued. “Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House.”
With the House under Democrat control, there is no way Republicans will be able to pass a new plan. On top of that, promising a better program after 2020 ensures that voters come out in droves on Election Day. Democrats are planning to push their toxic “Medicare for All.” Unless patriots come out to stop them, they will have their way.
Something as important as our health shouldn’t be left in the hands of people on the left.
