Trump just announced he will not repeal Obamacare

After meeting with President Barack Obama, President-elect Donald Trump appears to have reversed his position on repealing Obamacare.

One of the President-elect’s biggest promises on the campaign trail was his vow to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, particularly in the wake of health insurance providers pledging to raise the price of coverage by double digits in coming years. However, it appears the outgoing president has convinced Trump to keep his signature legislation. As of this writing, Trump has only said he would amend it, and that repealing the law outright may not be his plan going forward.

The position is a shocker to many, particularly Congressional Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. McConnell has said repealing Obamacare is “pretty high” on his list of priorities for the next four years, and Ryan is asking Trump to allow him to privatize Medicare and gut Obamacare, according to Salon.

The UK-based Independent reported that President-elect Trump and President Obama discussed some of the ongoing difficulties the country faces, but also reflected on the highlights of the past 8 years, which has been interpreted as praise for the Affordable Care Act. The healthcare law, which has allowed over 20 million Americans to have access to health insurance since 2010, is proving popular in the wake of the election, with over 100,000 Americans signing up for Affordable Care Act plans on healthcare.gov in the past 48 hours.

Americans have until January 31, 2017 to enroll in or change existing health coverage for the 2017 calendar year.

Woohoo
How about that !
He's making changes in his own plans , breaking promises to his Trumpettes !
I think it's best to keep the ACA and make changes .
The fault is with the Insurance companies that charge too much .

Let's get this straight...

No special prosecutor for Hill like he promised?

No wall paid for by Mexico.

Now not repealing ObamaCare.

Next he will say he won't overturn Roe vs. Wade.

This is such good news ! Like you I also believe that it's best to keep ACA and make changes. You are soooooo right that this is a big insurance company problem !  Trump can't solve any of our country's health care problems (outside of Obama care too) without addressing the problems the Insurance Companies have created. In additon to them charging too much, the top Administration of those companies make millions of dollars annually, per CEO. There needs to be some changes on the Insurance companies behalf in order to fix our country's health care crisis....that effects everyone !

Fox News says Trump will keep parts of Obama care and he won't get rid of it completely because he thinks there are some good things about it .
I'm glad .

A Sense of Whiplash About the Affordable Care Act

Just days after an election in which he vowed repeatedly to repeal President Obama’s signature health care law, Donald J. Trump is sending signals that his approach to health care is a work in progress.

Mr. Trump even indicated that he would consider keeping two of the most popular parts of the law, including one that forces insurers to cover people with pre-existing health conditions and another that allows parents to cover children under their plan into their mid-20s. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, he said he was reconsidering his stance after meeting with Mr. Obama on Thursday.

I don't like the ACA as a whole, but there are good parts about it.  It would be weird to scrap the whole thing.  Alterations would be good.
