Why does Trump have a “secret” healthcare plan? I’m pretty sure that would prefer no surprises or secrets when it comes their healthcare. Breathtaking how stupid they think people are. Then again, some did ask for this
President Donald Trumps ABC town hall event teased a healthcare plan that he has been promising for months. The plan was then confirmed Wednesday by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who acknowledged the plan but said that Americans and the press couldnt have access to it.
In 2015, Trump promised that the GOP would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. In an appearance on Sean Hannitys radio show, he claimed the replacement would be "something great," but five years later, the plan still hasnt been revealed to the public.
Once Trump took office in 2017, he complained that the Senate must confirm former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price because the "repeal and replacement of ObamaCare is moving fast!"
There was another promise during his State of the Union Address later that month when the president promised, "The way to make health insurance available to everyone is to lower the cost of health insurance, and that is what we are going to do."
Trumps plan seemed to evolve later that year when the GOP failed to repeal Obamacare because there was no plan introduced to replace it. It was a deal-breaker for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who voted down the measure.
In April, however, Trump pulled back on his healthcare efforts explaining that he never planned to pass a new GOP healthcare law so early. According to the president, he wanted to wait closer to the election.
"I was never planning a vote prior to the 2020 Election on the wonderful HealthCare package that some very talented people are now developing for me & the Republican Party. It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare…"
"Were going to produce phenomenal health care," Trump said of his plan in June 2019. "And we already have the concept of the plan. And itll be much better health care," Trump told George Stephanopoulos. When Stephanopoulos asked if he was going to tell people what the plan was, Trump responded: "Yeah, well be announcing that in two months, maybe less."
