President Donald Trump confirmed Monday night Republicans are working on new healthcare legislation designed to replace the current Obamacare law, and he said Congress will vote on it after the 2020 election.
In a series of tweets, Trump explained the situation and why the GOP is taking it on.
"Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn't work," Trump tweeted. "Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance. The Republicans….."
A second tweet, posted about 10 minutes later, read, "....are developing a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare. In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare. Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win……"
Trump closed the thread with a final message: "....back the House. It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America. Also, Republicans will always support Pre-Existing Conditions. The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealtCare. Meantime, the USA is doing better than ever & is respected again!"
Republicans tried and failed to repeal and replace Obamacare in 2017. Trump recently brought the issue back to the front burner as he gears up for his 2020 campaign.
