The Trump promise on health care 😂

imageIs a joke – J O K E‼️ And I don’t even know the details. “Much better health care at a much lower cost” For who⁉️

“We are going to be submitting in a couple of weeks a great healthcare plan that’s going to take the place of the disaster known as ObamaCare,” President Trump told the crowd at a campaign rally in Melbourne, Fla., according to the report. “It will be repealed and replaced… Just so you understand, our plan will be much better healthcare at a much lower cost,” he added. “OK? Nothing to complain about.”


Has everyone forgotten that Obamacare provides health insurance coverage to only about 3-4% of the US population?

  1. Same sh**, different day. Sounds a lot like President Obama’s promises. Do you remember?

    “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.” Reality: Millions of Americans have lost and will lose their coverage due to Obamacare. In fact, the Trump Administration just extended the use of “non-compliant” insurance policies in the individual marketplace.

    “[T]hat means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.” No larger lie was ever spoken.

    “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.” I used my savings as a down payment on a new car, how about you (Not!)

    “[F]or the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.” Tell that to all of the individuals who saw their point of purchase cost sharing in their employer-sponsored plan dramatically increased in anticipation of the Cadillac Tax and as a method to offset the cost shifting/cost increases and the new benefit mandates.

    “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.” There were 18 separate tax hikes, fees and penalties that affected the middle class and their employers.

    “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits—either now or in the future.” The design was always a fraudulent scheme – from CLASS long term care, to frontloading the benefits to backloading the revenues. For example, more and more and more smaller and smaller and smaller employers are dropping coverage or self-insuring, in part, as a means to avoid the insurance company tax. The challenge here is that you can’t itemize the deficits – they are buried as part of all of the deficits of the Obama Administration – which annually had deficits of $450+ Billion every year, and doubled the national debt.

    “[W]hatever ideas exist in terms of bending the cost curve and starting to reduce costs for families, businesses, and government, those elements are in this bill.” Nope. Simply, nope. Nope a dope.

    “I will protect Medicare.” Well, about 40% of the monies used to fund taxpayer subsidies for public exchange coverage and Medicaid expansion comes from proposed cuts in Medicare spending – cuts that no one will ever approve! So, this is the second part of the deficit lie.
    “I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American.” 30+MM Americans remain without coverage. And, that is despite the President’s endorsement of “coverage at any cost (to other people, so I can buy votes)”

    “So this law means more choice, more competition, lower costs for millions of Americans.” That has not been the experience – even of the majority of individuals with taxpayer subsidized coverage in the public exchange.

    The problem here is allowing federal officials to promise anything. They can only deliver a promise to Sue (and buy her vote) if they tax Joe (whose vote they were not going to get anyway). Same sh**, different day.

  2. Total dribble. The man spews BS without any scintilla of knowledge about the subject. So his plan is, ‘ is going to be so much better” then yesterday he spews out the truth ‘healthcare is incredibly complicated’ No kidding where have you been for the past generation that this subject has been discussed. Lets face it we are dealing with and empty headed narcissist leading our country and lets hope in two years the electorate comes out in droves to replace his party support.

    • All true, but let’s not forget too that the Obama administration put together a plan that also ignored the basic issues about health care and mislead people into thinking it was all the fault of insurance companies.

    • Bob, dribble just like a Obama and Pelosi. Obamacare would have self destructed if let alone. Agree? I do agree with you that Trump and GOP will probably screw things up on healthcare. They probably should have left things stand and blame Obama and Pelosi for the tanking of Obamacare. However your point about next election Dems are in total disarray and losing at all levels of govt.Dem senators will lose more seats in 2018 with many Trump states to defend and House will remain in GOP hands. Do you want to Bring back Hillary or Bernie in 2020?

      • John,
        No I only voted for Hillary because there was no choice to my mind. Believe me if it had been Kasich even though I lean left I would have voted for him but the current office holder is a complete incompetent. The point I made about having a big turn around in 2018 is based on the negative groundswell around Trump. I really believe many of those who did not vote will be at the polls to limit his ability going forward. I look for a big Democratic sweep. Between now and 2019 we should see someone emerge from the Democratic pile to claim the candidacy. I certainly hope it is neither Bernie nor Hillary.
