Trump says administration has already ‘essentially gotten rid’ of Obamacare

President Trump just announced that he believes the Affordable Care Act, known colloquially as Obamacare, has already “essentially” been dismantled because the individual mandate has already been invalidated. 

With the nomination of federal judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States, Democrats have become hysterical about the potential for the court to completely strike down former President Barack Obama’s flagship legislation.

However, President Trump explained on Sunday that Obamacare has already been struck down in a practical sense.

“We’ve already essentially gotten rid of Obamacare, because we got rid of the individual mandate,” he said, referring to law’s most controversial stipulation, which was repealed in 2017. “That’s no longer Obamacare because that was the central point.”

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a new challenge to Obamacare just after election day that will determine whether the law in its entirety must be canceled — which Trump appears to believe will not change anything.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sounded the alarm on Sunday that Trump is placing Barrett on the court in order to ensure that Obamacare is dismantled in its entirety.

“What I am concerned about is anyone that President Trump would have appointed was there to undo the Affordable Care Act. That is why he was in such a hurry, so he could have someone in place for the oral arguments, which begin November 10,” Pelosi said.

Trump, for his part, is cheering on any decision to strike down the controversial Affordable Care Act, releasing his own healthcare reform plan last week that includes many of the policy goals that Obamacare failed to achieve with his legislation.

Same as Ron said “if it’s not to the leftists’ liking, it will disappear, you know like a few of the Clinton’s people did when they opened their mouths too wide.

Obama Care was a joke. It was “invented” by Obama for some reason that no one ever understood. Many people I understand got no or poor health care with Obama Care. You gotta read the small print on everything, it is written small so you will say to h—- with it I can’t understand or read it.

If it’s so great why was the house and senant exempt from having to sign up for it? Even Obama never had it.

It’s time for the criminal Democrats to face prison for the crimes they have committed against my president Donald John Trump President Trump Will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents of this country and there’s no doubt that the Democrats have turned her face away from God And I believe these criminals will pay a very high price for the evil they have turn to I still believe there are a lot more Christians in this country patriots that remember the treasure and the blood spilled to keep this country a free nation under God And it is time for patriots and the citizens of this country to do a much better job when it comes to electing our leaders we came real close to destroying this country if Hillary Clinton Would have won the election it would be a lot harder to regain the freedom that we have in this country everyone is seeing how much evil runs through the Clinton family not only are they liars cheats and
thieves There is some evidence that they may be involved in murdering people to gain the power and money they have do you think about it how the two little politicians get $148 million It’s because they are criminals let’s pray every day to our God and his son Jesus did he would forgive this nation for the sins we have committed one big one is the abortion mills Just think about how many babies are being aborted every year now the Democrats want to murder them after they’re born now can you see that evil is in these peoples hearts and minds They have sold their souls unless they beg forgiveness they will spend an eternity in hell God bless the USA God bless the Trump administration and God bless our patriots
