President Donald Trump fired off multiple tweets late on Monday night on health care, saying that the Republican Party will have a plan and will vote on it shortly after the 2020 elections.
“Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare!” Trump tweeted. “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 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,” Trump continued. “Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House.”
“It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America. Also, Republicans will always support Pre-Existing Conditions,” Trump added. “The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealtCare. Meantime, the USA is doing better than ever & is respected again!”
The tweets from Trump come after the Justice Department informed a federal appeals court last week that it approved of an appeals court decision that stated that the entire Obamacare statute is unconstitutional.
“Justice Department lawyers previously had argued that if the courts found Obamacare’s ‘individual mandate’ is no longer constitutional, then a narrow slice of the program — consumer protections for people with pre-existing conditions — could not stand, either,” The Washington Times reported. “A federal judge in Texas went much further in a December ruling, agreeing with plaintiff states who said the whole law should be invalidated. On Monday, administration lawyers said they’re fine with that.”
The DOJ wrote to the 5th U.S. Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals last week: “The Department of Justice has determined that the district court’s judgment should be affirmed.”
