President Trump met with some people at the White House, ‘victims’ of Obamacare, and he vowed that Republicans’ proposal will drive insurance costs “down, down, down.”
Trump said, “More competition and less regulation will finally bring down the cost of care.”
The president spoke with about a dozen Americans from across the country whom the White House says have been affected negatively by Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Joel Brown, a Tennessee resident, described his rate increases as astronomical and said his county has only one insurance option which comes, he said, with a $7,000 deductible.
Kim Sertich, of Arizona, said she no longer has traditional health-care, having gone into a faith-based cost-sharing program after the problems she had with her coverage.
“It will get better,” Trump pledged
Trump said, “The press is making it look so wonderful, It’s a little bit like President Obama. When he left, people liked him. When he was here, people didn’t like him so much.”
Trump predicted the current law will collapse, saying, “Whether we do it or not, it’ll be imploded off the map.”
Paul Ryan and the all of the Senate don’t seem to be agreeing.
Some Senators are waiting to be at the White House on Tuesday and be able to use compromise.
Senators are saying that President Trump will be flexible.
ObamaCare is imploding. It is a disaster and 2017 will be the worst year yet, by far! Republicans will come together and save the day.
