President Donald Trump announced during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News that he would release a new health care plan within the next two months, according to The Hill.
“We’re going to produce phenomenal health care, and we already have the concept of the plan,” Trump said. Without giving specifics, Trump said that the plan takes the “disaster” of Obamacare and makes it “serviceable.”
Early in his presidency, Trump tried to repeal and overturn Obamacare, but the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) refused at the last minute to vote for Trump’s plan. The Justice Department also sued to overturn Obamacare through the courts.
Health care is likely to be a key issue in the 2020 election, with current Democrat candidates generally supporting universal, single payer health care similar to that in Canada or the U.K.
Let’s hope Trump’s plan maximizes personal choice and fixes problems in Obamacare that have led to massive cost increases for those not qualifying for government subsidies.
