Trump Boasted About Having A Better Plan Than Obamacare, Then The AP Did A Fact Check And Found His Blatant Lie



President Donald Trump hates absolutely everything that his predecessor, Democratic President Barack Obama, did during his time in office. The saddest thing is that there is not even any real reason for that, apart from Trump’s insanely bloated ego and the unshakeable belief that he is always completely right about everything. When it comes to Obamacare, Trump absolutely hates the idea of universal health care because he is a capitalist, and inherently believes that all the wealth should be hoarded by those at the top, and never given back to the poorest in society, even with the most vital of public services. As a result, he has spent a huge amount of his time as President of the United States and leader of the free world trying to overhaul Obamacare, but has comprehensively failed every single time, despite apparently being the best deal maker he has ever seen. However, he remains undeterred, and has launched yet another attempt to take Obamacare down, and it is going about as well as you would expect. A fact check has brutally revealed the true nature of the nonsense he has been spouting about it:

TRUMP: “The Republican Party will become the party of great health care. … Republicans want you to have an affordable plan that’s just right for you.” — rally. “If the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is out, we will have a plan that’s far better than Obamacare.” — remarks Wednesday to reporters.

THE FACTS: Republicans may aspire to great health care but they don’t have a comprehensive plan for it. And there’s no indication that the White House, executive branch agencies like Health and Human Services, and Republicans in Congress are working on one. Trump’s recent budget called for repealing “Obamacare” and setting hard limits on federal spending for Medicaid, which covers low-income people. Some Republicans argue that would be better, because the federal government would create a new program of health care grants to states. But when the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office analyzed similar proposals a couple of years ago, it estimated such changes would result in deep coverage losses, not to mention weaker insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions.

Trump’s budget also called for hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare cuts to hospitals and other service providers, a nonstarter with lawmakers in Congress worried about re-election next year. The Supreme Court has upheld the health care law twice in previous challenges. The five justices who first upheld it in 2012 are still on the court. Congressional Republicans are generally trying to steer away from Obamacare spats. Some are trying to focus on areas where they might find common ground with Democrats and the president, such as reducing prescription drug costs.

This is extremely humiliating for the President, but it will not be enough to throw him off course.
