Trump claimed that he is going to sign a comprehensive healthcare plan in two weeks because the Supreme Court said he could.

Transcript via Fox News Sunday:

WALLACE: But you've been in office three and a half years, you don't have a plan.

TRUMP: Well, we haven't had. Excuse me. You heard me yesterday. We're signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do. So we're going to solve — we're going to sign an immigration plan, a health care plan, and various other plans. And nobody will have done what I'm doing in the next four weeks. The Supreme Court gave the President of the United States powers that nobody thought the President had, by approving, by doing what they did — their decision on DACA. And DACA's going to be taken care of also. But we're getting rid of it because we're going to replace it with something much better. What we got rid of already, which was most of Obamacare, the individual mandate. And that I've already won on. And we won also on the Supreme Court. But the decision by the Supreme Court on DACA allows me to do things on immigration, on health care, on other things that we've never done before. And you're going to find it to be a very exciting two weeks.

The Supreme Court decision on DACA doesn't allow him to change the healthcare system in the country without legislation from Congress. What Trump is doing is supporting a lawsuit that would gut the Affordable Care Act during a pandemic and a recession.

Trump demonstrated once again that he still doesn't know the difference between executive orders and laws. The President does not make laws or pass laws.

Donald Trump is making things up to fool voters into supporting him in November.

Trump has no plan, and just like infrastructure week, Trump's healthcare bill is never happening.

I guess we will all see it when he signs the executive order.  The people may well like it since it will forever protect insurance for those with pre existing conditions even if the courts do overturn the rest of Obamacare.

Executive order?

By God I thought those were bad when Obama did them.

They are good now?

Funny also you think healthcare could be done that way....

Well not personally.

But you remember Jim - one of  Trump's many gay friends who doesn't go to Paris any more because of the increased risk of catching  cov-fefe. Well Jim is in Nambia right now playing in the cover band Two Corinthians (they mainly do Four Tops songs).

Anyway, Jim said that Trump contacted him on "the Cyber" and told him about the new health plan. The main part is getting rid of Medicare and Medicaid and giving people many many more choices than they had before.

Trump apparently said "It will be great. There will be choices like you've never seen in this country. It will be like ice cream - so many flavors, so many flavors. Why, I think I'll call it Flavor-Aid ."

It also my understanding that Mexico will pay for the new and bigly great healthcare plan.

There's no viable healthcare plan from this administration, there never was, and there never will be one from Trump that can be implemented.  Mitch and Co. don't have the stomach for such legislation, and never did to begin with.

They still tout 'repeal and replace'...the repeal part is easy but the replace part is seemingly impossible as not a smidgeon of policy has been put forth. Just another 'kick-the-can-down-the-road' game of political expediency. Pathetic.

The dumb [deleted] who wrote this completely missed the point, I guess that is why he works for a worthless rag like Politicus.  Lets look at 2 lines in the stupid [deleted] article and compare them,

 You heard me yesterday. We're signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do.

Now you have to be an idiot to believe trump is going to have a full and complete healthcare plan in 2 weeks, but the point that this stupid partisan POS completely missed is in the sentence below

The Supreme Court decision on DACA doesn't allow him to change the healthcare system in the country without legislation from Congress.

Well you stupid [deleted,] Obama completely changed immigration law without congress. That was his point,we no longer need congress to make laws. the president can do it alone.
