"A recent report from Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers proposed this remedy, disproving Whopper No. 1, that Trump will forsake the seriously ill. Dems claim ObamaCare is the only way to cover pre-existing conditions. Wrong. It’s just the unfairest way.

Trump’s reform will also slash premiums by liberating consumers from having to buy plans loaded with items ObamaCare mandates. Like pediatric dental care — even if you have no kids — or maternity coverage, even if you’re 50. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ardently defends these mandates, warning that insurance with fewer benefits is “junk” and insisting consumers need protection. That’s Whopper No. 2. Look who’s actually being protected."

No one believes that Trump is going to find a suitable replacement for the ACA. Too many Republicans are against trashing the ACA with no replacement. It's like quitting your job before you have another one lined up.

If Donald Trump is serious about a better plan, he should go with universal coverage - that's socialism on steroids.

If Republicans wanted to come up with an alternative to ObamaCare, they'd have done it nine years ago. Nine years. That's how long Republicans have been promising a better alternative to ObamaCare.
Oh, Hell, it goes back further than that. GOPers killed “Hillarycare” back in the early days of the Bill Clinton presidency, and they said they’d come up with a better alternative.

They never did.

I expect they’ll do the same thing if they succeed in killing Obamacare, to the detriment of the public, especially those with preexisting conditions.

What's really going on? Trump believes that if the courts wipe away ObamaCare, Democrats will be so desperate to make sure that people are covered they will negotiate some plan with Trump that won't be good but for which Republicans can still blame them. Trump believes this because Democrats....you know...care about all Americans and not just the ones richly employed enough to afford insurance on their own. That makes them patsies in Trump's eyes.

Of course, he thought they'd never let him shut down the government, either.
