The Republicans are working to bring about a new health care plan known as the Grand Old Party HealthCare Plan or the GOP HealthCare Plan in America, as per the latest statements made by President Trump. He tweeted that the Republican Party, also known as GOP, will then be known as the Party of Great HealthCare.
“Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance,” Trump’s tweet read.
“…The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealthCare. Meantime, the USA is doing better than ever & is respected again!”
Trump faced severe criticism for the GOP HealthCare plan by the Democrats. A few days ago, James Carpetta, a health care expert at the American Enterprise Institute in response to Trump’s arguments said that the announcement of the plan had left the Republicans open to more attacks and ridicule by the Democrats, as they initially do not have a specific plan to proceed with their healthcare deal.
Trump failed in his attempt to reject the ObamaCare in 2017. ObamaCare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was passed in 2010 to mandate health insurance for all Americans.
As the healthcare was a priority for the Democratic and the independent voters, thus, focusing on this issue helped the Democrats to take over the House in January.
Trump on Monday said that the GOP HealthCare plan will be introduced after 2020 elections, when the Republicans will hold the Senate and will win back the House. He tweeted that the new healthcare plan will support the pre-existing conditions with far lower premiums (cost) and deductibles than ObamaCare. Thus, it will be way less expensive and much more usable than ObamaCare. The provision of protecting people with pre-existing conditions would however, be eliminated if the Texas Judge strikes down Obama’s Affordable Care Act as ‘unconstitutional’.
The main strategy of the plan centers on letting states overhaul their health programs. It will allow the states to implement work requirements in its Medicaid program to consider requests to let states expand coverage only to those below the poverty line. Officials are looking to let the states alter their Affordable Care Act programs, which will include allowing them to funnel subsidies to people buying coverage outside the exchanges.
The final decision of whether to completely put an end to ObamaCare or add up certain editions in it alongside GOP HealthCare plan, remains uncertain.
