President Donald Trump has renewed his efforts to combat the adverse effects of Obamacare and vowed to replace it with a better system.
In a post to Truth Social Tuesday, he stated, “Getting much better Healthcare than Obamacare for the American people will be a priority of the Trump Administration. It is not a matter of cost, it is a matter of HEALTH.”
He declared, “America will have one of the best Healthcare Plans anywhere in the world. Right now it has one of the WORST!”
In his next post, President Trump vowed to replace Obamacare with “MUCH BETTER HEALTHCARE” and noted that “Obamacare Sucks!!!”
The promises of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, have fallen short, according to a Forbes report.
The outlet noted that Obamacare indebted American taxpayers with tens of billions of dollars to cover subsidy costs. Further, the law also burdens companies relying on private insurance, forcing them to drop coverage.
In addition, the controversial individual mandate that required Americans to pay for health insurance or be forced to pay a penalty was deemed “unconstitutional” by a federal appeals court in 2019, per NBC News.
According to Very Well Health, only Americans in four states and the District of Columbia are still required to pay the penalty for not paying for government-mandated insurance.
President Trump has been a strong leader against additional taxes and has opposed the expenses of the Affordable Care Act throughout his political career.
According to Newsweek, in 2019, he supported a conservative coalition in legal efforts to repeal the act entirely.
