GOP senator repeatedly contradicts himself on Obamacare - and leaves CNN hosts baffled


Bill O'Reilly: Can Americans in 2017 expect a new healthcare plan rolled out by the Trump Administration?

Speaking to O'Reilly, Trump said the Obamacare replacement plan will come out sometime in 2018, or more - well, less - specifically: "Maybe it'll take until sometime into next year".

Republican congressional leaders, though, have put forward the idea of passing repeal with just some pieces of a replacement attached and then passing a series of other, small bills later on as part of a replacement plan.

Sixty-one percent said they knew that some Americans would lose Medicaid and health insurance coverage if the law were repealed with no replacement. If they do this correctly, they can unleash the same power of innovation that has made cell-phones affordable and ubiquitous, that has given every American the opportunity to travel worldwide faster and cheaper than imaginable, and that has made cars safer, faster and more reliable than ever before. Instead of leaning on the "repeal and replace" terminology, Republicans have begun to say they are "repairing" the ACA, a softening in their harsh rhetoric.

Knowledge about the particulars of a potential repeal of the law was also lacking: 39% of people surveyed said they did not know or incorrectly stated that Medicaid subsidies would not go away if Obamacare is repealed. Rand Paul last month, who warned about the consequences that repealing the law - and not immediately replacing it - would have on Americans, insurance companies, in addition to the political ramifications it could have on Republicans. Any form of repeal would only be effective after there is a practical alternative that includes several of the popular republican reforms to Obamacare, such as shopping insurance plans across state lines, and expansion of health savings accounts.

"Whether I do it for $30,000 or $90,000 a year, I will always be confident in the sad fact that people are always in need of help", he said.

On "America's Newsroom" today, Doug McKelway reported that the Affordable Care Act will be particularly hard to dismantle because it is 1,900 pages long, with 20,000 pages of regulations. "Frankly, we think a lot of them will opt for what we call the better choice, which is far different from Obamacare". It will take time for insurers and agencies to shift to the new Republican plan.

Anything from a break to a sprain can mean costly doctor visits, especially in the USA, where citizens pay more for healthcare than any other high-income nation.

During the Republican primary, and then again in January, Trump said that "nobody is going to be dying in the streets" under any health care bill he signs.

Georgia's enrollment total for this year trailed that of Florida, Texas and North Carolina among states using the federally run exchange.
