Donald Trump has been wowing his massive audiences with a vow to “repeal and replace” Obamacare.
In a Tuesday speech, he went into greater detail about his plans to fix America’s health care system, and naturally, he repeated that pledge as part of his policy package.
In addition, Trump said this priority task would take place as soon as possible after the election, with the caveat that Americans had to elect a Republican Congress as well.
“I will ask Congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace,” he continued. “And it will be such an honor for me, for you and for everybody in this country because Obamacare has to be replaced. And we will do it, and we will do it very, very quickly. It is a catastrophe.”
“Obamacare means higher prices, fewer choices and lower quality, yet Hillary Clinton wants to expand Obamacare and make it even more expensive,” he added. “She wants to put the government totally in charge of health care in America. If we don’t repeal and replace Obamacare, we will destroy American healthcare forever. It’s one of the single most important reasons why we must win on Nov. 8. We must win.”
Trump reminded listeners that Bill Clinton himself had recently criticized the Affordable Heath Care Act, at the same time that tone-deaf Hillary was boasting that the plan had first been called “Hillarycare.”
While many people are rightly appalled by the sleaziness surrounding Hillary Clinton, and concerned about terrorism, something like the high cost of health care is a pocketbook issue that touches every American in some way, every day.
That’s why Trump’s promise to get rid of Obama’s “solution” to this problem has clearly struck a nerve with voters.
