Over the past few weeks, Washington, D.C., has been embroiled in a rather large debate between Democrats and Republicans over the fate of Obamacare now that President-elect Donald Trump is set to be sworn in.
Many Democrats have been hesitant to say they will support anything that Trump and congressional Republicans do to change the failed health care law, but in a recent interview President Barack Obama made some stunning remarks about what he would be willing to accept.
“And as I said, I don’t mind. If in fact the Republicans make some modifications, some of which I may have been seeking previously, but they wouldn’t cooperate because they didn’t want to make the system work, and re-label it as TrumpCare, I’m fine with that,” Obama said in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
Obama even said he would support Republicans if they could “come up with a system that insures more people cheaper, better.”
So, Obama essentially admitted that Obamacare had serious flaws and wasn’t the wonder legislation that it was promised to be. That certainly is different from what he’s been proclaiming for six years.
Obama also stated in his interview that he was “skeptical” that Republicans will actually repeal Obamacare, that he thought it will survive a Trump administration.
Trump was elected because millions of Americans have agreed that Obamacare simply doesn’t work and they want to see something else take its place — something that won’t cost so much.
Right now it is up to Trump and congressional Republicans to show the American people that they have a better alternative.
