Nearly half of Republicans think Trump repealed Obamacare: Poll

by
December 28, 2017

More than four in 10 Republicans think President Trump repealed Obamacare, even though much of the 2010 law remains intact after GOP efforts to repeal and replace it fell short this past year, according to a new poll.

Mr. Trump recently said he “essentially” repealed the Affordable Care Act by using the GOP tax overhaul to get rid of the “individual mandate” that requires Americans to either hold health insurance or pay a tax.

But the law’s taxpayer-funded subsidies, vast expansion of Medicaid and consumer protections are still in place, so few conservatives would share Mr. Trump’s assessment.

Even so, an Economist/YouGov poll says 44 percent of those who identified as Republican think Mr. Trump has, in fact, repealed Obamacare.

    Ending the insurance mandate shoved the healthcare debate back over to the House/Senate where the fix must occur. Robbing the young & healthy citizens to pay for the healthcare system is the only thing that has kept this turkey alive. The thing will be insolvent in a mater of months.
    The legislature has kicked the can down the road on so many issues over the years & got by with it. The Obamacare that stalled in the Senate earlier this year was an attempt to kick it past the 2018 midterm.
    This President kicks the can right back to them. It’s about time some of those preening peacocks had to do the job they are so handsomely paid to do.

    Without the mandate forcing people to but pi$$ poor insurance, I think that the damd thing is doomed, as it should be. I hope I am right. I think it will just totally collapse pretty soon.

      It was already dieing, he just shoved the dagger in farther so it doesn’t get back up.
