Repealing and replacing Obamacare will give provision of “insurance for everybody”, revealed President-elect Donald Trump. He said, on Sunday, that the bill which is nearly finished will include “much lower deductibles” and “lower numbers” but refused revealing any specific details, saying that he plans to chase pharmaceutical companies insisting them to negotiate with the government directly on Medicaid and Medicare health plans at lower costs. He also said that the philosophy of you don’t get it if you can’t pay for it will not happen with the people and they are going to insure everybody. Trump added, waiting to confirm his nominee for the position of secretary of health and human services, Republican Tom Price, that bill is “down to final strokes”. The issue is expected to be addressed by Congress in upcoming weeks. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican Senator, doesn’t want any delay in repeal and wants the congress to vote, on the same day, on replacement. On Sunday, he said that some of the health insurance coverage mandates would get rid by unveiling Obamacare replacement bill with an aim to bring down cost of insurance.
Healthcare workers, hundreds of nurses and patients are expected to rally in order to protest the effort to rescind Affordable Care Act. A California Democrat, Sen. Kamala Harris, is opposing the repeal and scheduled to appear, outside USC Medical Center/Los Angeles County in Boyle Heights, with healthcare activists. Organizers of rally, Service Employees International Union as well as other labor groups, warn that rescinding the law without any replacement, will strip 5 million Californians coverage and throw healthcare systems in chaos. The protest, planned by (I-Vermont) Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader (D-San Francisco), is one of various across the nation and an effort in saving national healthcare system. President-elect Donald Trump, predicted that repeal and replace would occur simultaneously expecting Congress to act on dismantling the healthcare law swiftly. Paul D. Ryan, House Speaker, committed to carry out repeal and replace this year. Republicans in both the Senate and House, to take first step in repealing the law which was signed by President Obama in 2010, voted in last week.
