Ding Dong, the witch is dead! Which old witch? Obamacare! President Trump undercut his predecessor’s crowning achievement by scraping the individual mandate.
The Trump administration is the most responsive governing body that Americans have ever experienced. His campaign promises weren’t mere words. He committed to repealing Obamacare, and that’s what he’s done.
“The individual mandate is being repealed. When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means ObamaCare is being repealed because they get their money from the individual mandate. So the individual mandate is being repealed,” Trump said Wednesday.
“So we have massive tax cuts and tax reform, we have essentially repealed ObamaCare and we’ll come up with something that will be much better. Whether it’s block grants or whether it’s taking what we have and doing something terrific. But ObamaCare has been repealed in this bill.”
Democrats are furious. Every single liberal in the Senate pitted themselves against the tax reform bill. Democrats have been winning state and local elections, but they haven’t been very effective in Washington.
Trump admitted that he purposefully downplayed the tax bill’s effect on Obamacare when he was promoting it.
“We didn’t want to bring it up. I told people specifically, ‘Be quiet with the fake news media because I don’t want them talking too much about it.’ But now that it’s approved, I can say the individual mandate on health care where you had to pay not to have insurance, think of that one, you pay not to have insurance. The individual mandate has been repealed,” he said.
Improved healthcare options for average Americans will soon follow.
