After seven years of procrastination, Republicans have now been scrambling to come up with a workable and affordable solution with which to replace Obamacare. So far, what they’ve come up seems to fall way short of appeasing enough people. It’s hard to replace one unpopular SOCIALIST program with another SOCIALIST program that is more acceptable. Now Trump is calling on congressional Republicans to just go ahead and repeal Obamacare as promised and then work on their replacement.
President Trump’s most recent comments on the GOP attempts to fix our nation’s failing healthcare system are music to conservative ears.
Conservative leaders have for months been arguing that the GOP should simply repeal Obamacare immediately and then write individual bills to deal with the problems that exist in our healthcare industry. Crafting a “comprehensive” healthcare bill that will please all segments of the population is simply impossible and will no doubt end up creating more problems than it solves (just like Obamacare did).
Instead Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Mike Lee (R-UT), and a host of conservative Congressmen have been arguing that if we repeal Obamacare and then write smaller bills to deal with specific problems, we’ll be better able to help as many Americans as possible.
If Republicans go ahead and just repeal Obamacare, it will leave millions of Americans without any healthcare coverage, which will certainly not go over very well. Frankly, nothing Republicans can do will be affordable and acceptable. Once millions grew accustomed to the socialist program, nothing but a more costly and extensive socialist program will be acceptable to therm. They fail to see the significance behind the entire mess that Obama forced upon the American people.
