“President Trump has made it the top priority of this new Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with health-care reform that will lower the cost of health insurance without growing the size of government,” Pence said.
Wow, that sounds good. Did Mike Flynn tell you that?
At his first news conference after the election in November, Trump said that his administration would submit a repeal-and-replace plan “almost simultaneously” with Price becoming secretary. He said the plan “will most likely be on the same day or the same week, but probably the same day. Could be the same hour.”
In an interview with The Washington Post the following weekend, Trump said that a plan with the goal of “insurance for everybody” was “very much formulated down to the final strokes.” He reiterated that he was just waiting for Price to take office.
Well, he has.
“Maybe it’ll take till sometime into next year,” Trump said, although “the rudiments” could be released in late 2017.
Rudiments? What the fuck are rudiments?
“The American people are still waiting for that one tweet that says, ‘I will keep my promise,’” Sanders said.
However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) delivered a sharply different portrayal, saying that Price “doesn’t just understand health-care policy as a policymaker, though he does deeply. He also understands it as a practicing
physician inside trader.”
Fixed that for you, Yertl.
“For Americans struggling under Obamacare, today is a big step forward,” Ryan said in a statement. “Having Dr. Tom Price at the helm of HHS gives us a committed ally in our work to repeal and replace Obamacare and finally provide Americans with a better system.”
For the sake of Republicans running in 2018 it had better be. It has already passed from being Obamacare to being GOPcare. Guess Lyin' Ryan hasn't heard.
