Trump promises Republicans will have plan to replace Obamacare, but only after the 2020 election


President Donald Trump promised the American people on Tuesday that Republicans will have a plan to replace Obamacare, but only if they are still in power after the 2020 election.

Trump and his administration has been urging federal courts to strike down the entirety of the 2009 healthcare law despite massive backlash because 21 million people would lose their health insurance and people with pre-existing conditions would no longer be protected from discriminatory insurance practices.

Even Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano conceded that Republicans secretly hope Trump loses in court because Obamacare is a losing issue for them in 2020. They know this because Trump’s previous effort to yank healthcare from the American people cost them dearly in the 2018 midterm election that saw Democrats retake the House by a landslide victory.

Republicans are also under fire for not having a proper plan to replace Obamacare if the courts kill it.

But Trump insisted that the GOP has a plan, it’s just that they won’t unveil it until after the 2020 contest, and Americans have to allow them to stay in power to see it:

The problem is that there is no such plan. Trump’s mouth is writing a check that his a** can’t cash, and he’s using it to demand Americans re-elect him.

Obamacare has the support of a 53 percent majority of Americans, and the only reason why premiums have shot up in the last two years is because of Trump’s effort to sabotage the law.

As for Medicare-for-All, it’s a universal healthcare system that would eliminate premiums entirely and replace it with a small tax similar to payroll taxes that fund Social Security, which has worked successfully for over 80 years despite Republican efforts to steal from it and privatize it.

Also, 70 percent of Americans support universal healthcare. It’s more efficient, lowers healthcare costs and eliminates the need for greedy middleman insurance companies.

There’s no way Republicans can match that with a bill to prop up the privatized system, which just does not work.

This latest promise by Trump is similar to one he made just prior to the 2018 Election when he dangled a tax cut for the middle class over the American people’s heads in a blatant effort to dupe them into voting for Republicans. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now. Only this time, there are lives at stake, and Trump apparently cares more about retaining power than he does about keeping people from needlessly dying due to lack of what should be a basic human right.
