This Trump Quote Perfectly Captures What’s Wrong with Obamacare
Republicans have battled to overturn the flawed Affordable Care Act.
Since the passage of Obamacare, GOPs have tried to present bills to overturn it.
They’ve threatened to shut down the government over it.
They’ve attempted to use it as a tool in budget negotiations.
All these attempts have gone nowhere.
Obamacare is still with us.
In a wide-ranging interview with on the economy with FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump nails what’s wrong with Obamacare:
He also said the U.S. must appeal Obamacare and come up with a better solution.
“The numbers are catastrophic for this country in terms of what it is going to cost. It’s unaffordable and it doesn’t work, it’s not good… Look at the premiums, look at what’s happening to the premiums for people. Look what’s happening to the deductibles — how high the deductibles are. You [have to] get hit by a Komatsu tractor in order to use it,” he said.
What’s interesting about this interview with Trump is what Trump naturally demonstrates.
While Trump may not know all the details of economic policy, he understands how business works.
He speaks from a position of leadership.
Trump cuts through all the confusion and gets to the heart of the issues.
The fact is Obamacare is unaffordable — both premiums and out of pocket costs if you need healthcare.
What the GOP opposition to Obamacare lacks is one clear voice to speak the truth of its flaws.
The GOP needs leadership to get rid of Obamacare.
