Heroic Intervention May Not Save Trumpcare
It’ll have to be removed. That’s the latest from President Donald Trump on Obamacare, after last week’s Senate efforts to whip a majority into line to support a replacement health care plan went nowhere. “REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!” Trump tweeted Friday, but depriving millions of Americans of alternative care is an unpalatable choice for many Republicans facing 2018 midterm elections. And with the Congressional Budget Office projecting 35 percent lower Medicaid spending and 22 million more uninsured Americans under the proposal, the president’s ultimatum isn’t expected to convince more legislators to concur.
