Nothing: Trump won't be able to change it
Trump and the republicans will eliminate it
It will get changes made but remain
He'll shoot for Universal Health Care at the horror of the republicans

The entire healthcare industry needs to be less socialized. Injecting a little bit of the free market into healthcare will go a long long way to reducing prices and increase quality. They're also talking about cutting down more of the red tape in the FDA. Apparently there are 4,000 drugs waiting approval. The bureaucracy needs to end. It seems like the more government has become involved in the healthcare of its citizens, the more complicated, colluded, and corrupt the industry has become. Gee what a stunner. Whodathunk?
As far as Single payer is concerned, did you know there was another provision in the law that allowed States to opt out of ObamaCare completely IF they set up their own Single payer system ?
Yup. The State of Vermont hired Jonathan Gruber and Harvard Economist William Hisao to crunch the numbers and see if Single payer was a feasible alternative to the ACA.
In 2011, " Green Mountain Care ", Vermonts signature Single payer system was signed into law. So what happened to Green Mountain Care ?
The cost of Green Mountain Care was estimated at 4.3 Billion dollars a year which was almost the size of Vermonts entire State Budget of 4.9 Billion dollars
In 2017 the States projected revenues were 1.7 Billion dollars and Green mountain care would have required a additional 2.6 billion dollars to be properly funded
A 151% Tax deficit would have to made up with massive tax increases in order for the law to be funded.
Well tax increases dont actually increase revenues when you consider the larger impact on investment capital and jobs leaving the State and for some reason this very OBVIOUS consequence of confiscatory tax rates never occured to Jonathan Gruber and William Hsiao.
The two economist hired by Vermont for 400,000 dollars each to deliver a report on the feasibility of a Single payer system. Nope, the claimed Single payer would save the State over 1.6 Billion over 10 years
Needless to say it was never implemented
