While Democrats on the Hill continue to deride the notion of repealing and replacing Obamacare, calling such a maneuver at worst, “make America sick again,” and at best “Trumpcare,” President-elect Donald Trump insists that he will lower costs and make it available to everyone.
Although Trump declined to reveal specifics of a replacement plan during a recent interview with The Washington Post, he said that once the details are hammered out, it will provide affordable health “insurance for everybody.”
He added that part of the plan will involve re-negotiating drug prices with pharmaceutical companies who are Medicare and Medicaid providers — much like he already did with Boeing over its production of the next generation Air Force One.
Trump told the Post that once completed, he will reveal the details, which will provide “lower numbers, much lower deductibles,” to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
“It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes,” Trump told the Post. “We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon.”
Part of any delay in the plan’s announcement can be attributed to Senate confirmation of his choice to head the Department of Health and Human Services — Rep. Tom Price, a Georgia Republican who is also a physician.
So far hearings on Price’s confirmation have yet to be announced.
