Throughout Trump’s campaign and presidency, he has attacked Obamacare numerous times claiming Obama failed to provide the American people with fair and affordable healthcare.
Once again, it looks like the joke is on Trump as his very own Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) came forward with data against Trump’s false statements regarding the Affordable Care Act.
However, Trump has made it clear he and the GOP will no improve upon the Affordable Care Act. Instead they’d rather dismantle it and leave millions without health insurance.
New data have been released contradicting Republican propaganda about the “failing” Affordable Care Act. What may be more embarrassing to the hardliners pushing repeal is that it comes from the government, specifically the Department of Health and Human Services.
Under Secretary Tom Price, the department has been a fount of anti-ACA rhetoric. But in an annual report about the ACA’s risk-management provisions issued Friday, Health and Human Services established that the key programs are “working as intended,” protecting insurers from unexpectedly large risks and moderating premiums for consumers.
Sources have recently exposed the GOP’s new healthcare bill, describing the bill to essentially be a tax cut for America’s most wealthy at the expense of the sick. Unfortunately Trumpcare’s support has grown too much to be comfortable with.
This is just the Republican party doing what they’ve always done. Brick by brick Trump and his cronies on Capitol Hill are working to restore the aristocracy Fmr. President Barack Obama sought to dismantle.
Obamacare is working. Even President Obama once said it will need improvement. After all, what healthcare plan is perfect from the beginning?
