President-elect Donald Trump has made it very clear that one of the first things he plans to do once he is in office is begin the process of repealing and replacing Obamacare.
After meeting with congressional Republicans on Wednesday, Vice President-elect Mike Pence announced that Trump will be using executive orders from day one of his presidency to make the repeal of Obamacare much easier, The Hill reported.
“We’re working now on a series of executive orders that will enable that orderly transition to take place even as Congress appropriately debates alternatives to and replacements for Obamacare,” Pence explained.
Pence did not get into specifics about what sort of executive orders Trump will be using, but we have no doubt that they will be constitutional, as opposed to many of those issued by his predecessor.
If Trump uses executive orders to reverse much of what President Barack Obama did with Obamacare, that will have the same effect as essentially killing the legislation.
Then it is up to congressional Republicans to take legislative action.
Politico noted that it was possible that Trump could sign executive orders related to Obamacare on his first day in office — something that would show he was quite serious about getting rid of the failed health care program.
While Republicans are eager to repeal Obamacare, they are also suggesting that they move cautiously so millions of Americas aren’t negatively affected because of Republican action, CBS News reported.
The American people spoke loudly on Election Day and made it clear that they want Obamacare gone. It appeared that Trump was planning to live up to his promises of repealing Obamacare.
Now it’s up to Congress to give the American people a better alternative.
