    Obamacare isn't going particularly well. And the problems are getting worse.

    So the new administration has to do something to stop the bleeding.

    Believe Trump did mention the topic in his "First 100 Days" document. (but am too lazy to go dig it up at the moment.)

Probably also get rid of the mandate and let insurance be bought nationwide instead of statewide.
    Mandate goes away, the pre-existing condition clause goes with it. There's no way you can eliminate one and not the other. And the pre-existing condition clause is one of the most popular aspects of the ACA.

    You can do it, you just have to fund it elsewhere.

    It would be impossible to repeal now, we are in too deep and many medical facilities have made the necessary adjustments to accommodate it, such as technology requirements. You also have millions of Americans who depend on it. I think it may evolve to what Medicare has done...it was far from a perfect program when it first started and look at it today. There is a lot of junk that was included in the bill, such as the mandates, those are easily remedied and could have been done already. The next hurdle are the insurance companies and the premiums. They need someone who cannot be bought off by lobbyist's and can play hard ball with them.

    Believe that is something the originators of Obamacare were counting on when they passed the bill. And why they weren't too concerned with all the clumsiness/problems the program contained.

    Are referring the insurance companies withdrawing their participation in the PPACA as calling the shots, then I agree.
