On Monday, Republicans released their replacement bill for Obamacare and have now begun the process of publicly debating and modifying it.
President Donald Trump has touted the plan as a success and pressured Republicans to move quickly to pass the bill. Some Republicans, however — including most of us at Conservative Tribune — are wary of certain aspects the bill, and Trump has tried to reassure them, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Trump stated in a meeting with GOP leaders that Americans would actually get to choose their doctor under this plan. We’ve all heard that promise before, but this time maybe it will actually happen.
“This will be a plan where you can choose your doctor,” Trump stated. “This will be a plan where you can choose your plan.”
Now that Trump has made that statement, he is going to have to follow through with it. So far Trump has shown to be a man of his word, but this may be his biggest test to date.
Trump also made it clear that he wasn’t going to accept more delaying tactics and stalling from Republican leadership. He wants this done now.
“We’re going to take action. There’s going to be no slowing down. There’s going to be no waiting and no more excuses by anybody,” he stated firmly.
Trump also sent out a tweet on Tuesday morning stating that the eliminating of the “lines between the states” would come in “phase two and three” of the rollout of the new program.
Don’t worry, getting rid of state lines, which will promote competition, will be in phase 2 & 3 of healthcare rollout. @foxandfriends

Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price avoided saying that Americans could keep their plan and their doctor, which CNN reported as evidence that the Trump administration was less confident about such a promise than the president was.
Bloomberg noted that Trump was likely to face stiff resistance from conservative Republican senators who have launched an aggressive campaign against what they had already dubbed “Obamacare 2.0.”
While this new bill may not be perfect, it certainly is a lot better than what is out there now. Hopefully Trump will be able to assuage the fears of these conservative Republicans and get them on board with his plan.
