Democrats and the media are demanding Republicans produce a health plan to replace Obamacare. Why? Simply because they want to make sure any health care is controlled by Washington DC bureaucrats. President-elect Trump has hired someone who does not want government run health care. He speaks of individually purchased health care policies with no mandates and no central control. He wants Americans to be allowed to shop for policies in states other than where they live. He wants Americans to decide for themselves how much coverage they have, and what the deductible will be.
That is the opposite of what Democrats and the media are pushing for. They are trying to set the agenda for discussions, to provide a baseline in which central control is necessary.
“GOP launches long-promised repeal of Obamacare with no full plan to replace it”
Congressional Republicans on Wednesday launched their long-promised effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, even as they acknowledged that they may need several months to develop a replacement along conservative lines.
Signifying how enormous a priority the issue is for the incoming administration, Vice President-elect Mike Pence met privately to discuss it with House and Senate Republicans. He offered no details afterward about what a new health-care law might look like but vowed to unwind the existing one through a mixture of executive actions and legislation.”
