Trump slows down on Obamacare

Guardian -In a Fox News interview that aired Sunday night, Trump said of replacing Obamacare: “In the process and maybe it will take till sometime into next year, but we are certainly going to be in the process. It’s very complicated.” He continued to say it would “statutorily take a while” to get a new healthcare plan. “We’re going to be putting it in fairly soon, I think that, yes, I would like to say by the end of the year at least the rudiments, but we should have something within the year and the following year,” Trump said.

The Republicans were never, ever, going to seriously alter ACA, after all the idea was first hatched by their very own Heritage Foundation to begin with. First trotted out for real in that great liberal bastion of Massachusetts, RomneyCare early on proved that Democrats could suckered into accepting a this blatant giveaway to big insurance/pharma/fro profit health sector. Republicans have run ever year since ACA passage promising reform or repeal, and every time after successfully winning office they find some reason to lay down, stall, and do nothing. This is so because there is no way any of those in DC want to kill the golden geese that keep campaign funding flowing--Democrats included
