Congress passed the American Health Care Act, a health care plan intended to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
The truth, which has not been widely reported, is that Obamacare was failing on its own. Individual states were finding loopholes to opt out and insurance companies were denying and dropping coverage all across the nation, as many individuals and businesses simply could not afford the premiums.
Not only could you not keep your own doctor under Obamacare, the inappropriately named “Affordable Health Care Act,” was anything but affordable for many Americans.
Trump has promised that his new health care plan would lower premiums and encourage employers, unburdened with high healthcare costs for their employees, to begin hiring again.
Trump declared Obamacare ‘dead’ after the House passed the new GOP healthcare bill.
Trump congratulated and thanked House Speaker Paul Ryan and praised House Republicans for working together to pass the bill.
“What we have is something very, very incredibly well-crafted,” Trump said.
Alarmist Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, condemned the passage of Trump’s healthcare bill.
“Make no mistake, many people will die as a result of this bill,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, said.
