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because we got rid of the individual mandate,” he said, referring to law’s most controversial stipulation, which was repealed in 2017.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.

  4. 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.
