One lingering and gut-wrenching question on the minds of the American people is what will happen to Obamacare, and healthcare in general, now that the GOP will be taking over. Trump may have walked back some of his promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act “on day one” of his presidency, but he also made other promises that it appears his administration will be largely unable to deliver.
‘It is not enough to simply repeal this terrible legislation. We will work with Congress to make sure we have a series of reforms ready for implementation that follow free market principles and that will restore economic freedom and certainty to everyone in this country.’

As it appears Obamacare is certain to collapse of its own weight, the damage done by the Democrats and President Obama, and abetted by the Supreme Court, will be difficult to repair unless the next President and a Republican congress lead the effort to bring much-needed free market reforms to the healthcare industry.’
According to Bloomberg, not only is this the plan by the GOP to explain away their gutting of the ACA, it’s also a gross fabrication. Sign-ups for healthcare plans offered through the ACA exchange topped 6.4 million before the deadline on Dec. 19, a full 400,000 more Americans than signed up last year. On the final day of the deadline, 670,000 Americans applied for healthcare through the exchange.
That isn’t collapsing “of its own weight.” That looks more like widespread approval of and need for the ACA by the American people.
Moreover, the promises to dismantle the Affordable Care Act in its entirety are misguided and false, anyway. Some parts can be repealed, others will take time, and some can’t be repealed at all, nor does the American public seem to want them to be.
