TrumpCare Trumped

“Donald Trump ran, in part, on the promise of getting rid of ObamaCare. But upon taking the reins, two things became obvious: Republicans in Congress lacked the guts to repeal the ACA, and even lacked a coherent scheme to alter it. The new president could hardly be expected to possess the plan they lacked, though on the campaign trail he suggested the best approach: repeal, then open up insurance markets across state lines. The GOP Congress, on the other hand, was all promise and no clue. So Speaker of the House Paul Ryan hastily cooked up what was to be the new TrumpCare — a ridiculous reform package with nothing much to say for it.” (03/27/17)
