Trump’s New Suggestion for Healthcare is Genius

This country is divided on many issues. Perhaps on of our biggest disagreements is healthcare! Liberals honestly believe that the debacle of Obamacare is actually a good thing, while the rest of us see it for the catastrophe that it truly is.

However, even though we know it is a disaster, the GOP can’t seem to find a replacement for it. We had a shot at it before but simply did not get the votes needed to pass it .With the way things are going, it looks as if the newest version of a replacement proposed by Republicans is going to flop as well.

We are never going to be able to come up with a healthcare system that will please and cover everyone. However, I do know that if you have to force people to buy your healthcare and fine them if they don’t…….well, it’s obviously not something that is benefiting the people.

However, Trump has an answer to smooth over the situation for now. If they cannot come to an agreement, he suggests that we simply repeal Obamacare for now and replace it at a later date.

Fox News reports:

President Trump issued a blunt challenge to Republican senators on Friday to repeal ObamaCare now and replace it “at a later date” if they are unable to strike a deal on more comprehensive legislation – as rank-and-file lawmakers also voiced concern that time is running out to strike a deal.

“If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!” Trump tweeted.

Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump isn’t disagreeing with the bill. He is simply offering another option.

Nebraska GOP Sen. Ben Sasse floated a ‘plan B,’ saying if McConnell cannot reach a deal by July 10, the Senate should consider repealing the “maximum amount of ObamaCare” now – while adding a one-year delay before it takes effect, giving senators time to work out the details of a replacement plan.

There are only 33 working days left until the August break. Due to that, some senators are pushing for a cancellation of the August break so that they can work out a compromise.
OR, they could just take up Trump and his suggestion.

Healthcare is not a constitutional right. With that being said, I think that they should explore opening healthcare insurance across state lines. With that, there would be more competition and therefore lower prices.
