Trump Wants Obamacare Gone Immediately

(Gateway Pundit) – In 10 days Donald Trump will be named President of the United States. By the time he is sworn in as President he wants Republicans to have repealed Obamacare.

From the New York Times:

President-elect Donald J. Trump pressed Republicans on Tuesday to move forward with the immediate repeal of the Affordable Care Act and to replace it very quickly thereafter, saying, “We have to get to business. Obamacare has been a catastrophic event.”…

…Mr. Trump, who seemed unclear about the timing of already scheduled votes in Congress this week, demanded a repeal vote “probably some time next week,” and said “the replace will be very quickly or simultaneously, very shortly thereafter.”…

…“It’s a catastrophic event,” he said. “I feel that repeal and replace have to be together, for very simply, I think that the Democrats should want to fix Obamacare. They cannot live with it, and they have to go together.”…

…“It may not get approved the first time, and it may not get approved the second time, but the Democrats who will try not to approve it” will be at risk, warning that “they have 10 people coming up” for re-election in 2018. That alluded to Democratic senators in states he won…

…“I won some of those states by numbers that nobody has seen. I will be out there campaigning,” he said.

This is a major undertaking given the size and complexity of Obamacare and the tremendous amount of money that is currently tied up in the healthcare law.

Establishment Republicans are wanting to wait until they have a replacement ready for Obamacare before they repeal it. It’s not clear what Trump wants to do in terms of a replacement for Obamacare, perhaps he realizes the best course of action is to get the government out of healthcare all together.
