By Trump tweeting out more lies about his non-existent health care plan at the same time the Democrats are explaining in detail why ending the ACA would be disastrous for real Americans, Trump played right into the Democrats hands.
Donald J. Trump
We will have Healthcare which is FAR BETTER than ObamaCare, at a FAR LOWER COST - BIG PREMIUM REDUCTION. PEOPLE WITH PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS WILL BE PROTECTED AT AN EVEN HIGHER LEVEL THAN NOW. HIGHLY UNPOPULAR AND UNFAIR INDIVIDUAL MANDATE ALREADY TERMINATED. YOU’RE WELCOME!
As he has done time to time for the past four years, more often during election seasons, Trump is proclaiming a health care plan to replace Obamacare. Problem is, since he first started saying this in 2015, no such plan has ever been seen. On this extremely important issue, Trump appears to be feeding us flim flam.
He either has a plan, or a concrete outline of a plan, or he doesn't. By all appearances, he doesn't.
This incontrovertible fact unfortunately leads us to a sad conclusion - Trump doesnt care about presenting a new health care plan for Americans, instead he cares about removing another vestige of Barack Obama, the Affordable Care Act.
We can discern this from two connected facts - Trump nominated to the Supreme Court a judge who is known to oppose the ACA. She criticized Chief Justice Roberts' opinion in a previous case which saved the ACA, and Trump knows this. He picked her because she might vote against Obamacare in the SC.
The second fact is he has no replacement plan. He says and says and says he does, to no avail - it is all highly transparent bullshit. To save his life Trump could not explain his "health care plan" to a tv interviewer, or in a newspaper op-ed if he ever mustered the nerve to try and write something in his own words.
Today, Democrat after Democrat used their time in the Barrett hearing to attack Trump for wanting to end Obamacare without a plan to replace the ACA guarantee of coverage for pre-existing conditions.
One conservative commenter on tv said the Democrats did nothing to derail Barrett's nomination, but did a lot to bolster their argument against Trump. By Trump tweeting out more lies about his non-existent health care plan at the same time the Democrats are explaining in detail why ending the ACA would be disastrous for real Americans, Trump played right into the Democrats hands.
