Trump, Pence vow to ‘repeal and replace’ ObamaCare as enrollment begins

Donald Trump and Mike Pence marked the start of ObamaCare open enrollment Tuesday by railing against the program’s rising consumer costs and pledging to make repealing and replacing President Obama’s signature health care law a first order of business if elected.

Trump, speaking in Valley Forge in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, called the Affordable Care Act a “catastrophe” that needed to be replaced immediately.

“I will ask Congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace,” Trump vowed.

The running mates, already trying to energize supporters in the wake of the FBI’s decision to revisit the Hillary Clinton email probe, used Tuesday’s rally to draw attention to another October surprise — the administration admission that premium rates on the ObamaCare exchanges will rise an average 25 percent next year.

Despite Trump’s vow, a “special” session likely would not be necessary to address the law, since Congress already plans to reconvene after the election, and a new Congress would be in session by the time the next president is inaugurated.

    The Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable. Once again we see how totally incompetent liberal leadership is. Obamacare has made citizens poorer and create a variety of financial problems for health care providers.

    I think it would be great to repeal and replace Obamacare within the first 100 days of the Trump administration. This would put an end to the legacy of government overreach advanced by Barack Obama. Obamacare has been tried and we now know that it is a complete failure.

      Factually, the ACA has been quite successful.

      It has not effected employment.
      Medical innovation has increasd.
      Medical bill bankruptcy has been cut by over 66%
      Medical bad debt has been cut by over 50%

        Insurance rates have skyrocketed for most people.
        Insurance companies have pulled out of the plan because they are losing large sums of money.
        People now have more part time jobs because their hours were cut by employers faced with the prospect of providing health insurance to those working more than 30 hours a week for them.
        Hospitals forced to lay off staff because the payers pay slowly and for a fraction of what the services cost to provide.
        State Medicaid rolls have grown.
        State governments are faced with skyrocketing costs as the government’s Medicaid reimbursements decrease.

        Yep, the Affordable Care Act is a real success.

    He needs to do this as a first priority. Obozocare is one of the WORST programs ever put in by a government. The stupid political hacks should not have just rolled over on this one. They didn’t even READ the over 2,000 pages because they were too lazy. Deplorable.
