Congress Now Not Voting To Repeal Obamacare, And Trump’s “Day-One” Promise Broken To Replace, “It’s More Complicated,” He Says

Republicans used Obamacare to rally their base. When they had no chance of repealing it during Obama’s term, since he was never going to sign that law repealing his own healthcare plan, they voted a record 65 times to repeal it.  So, after 8 years, why no replacement plan by Republicans? And why not repeal it now that Trump is in office and they have the votes in the House and Senate to repeal it? Because it is all a con job fooling the very people who need the Affordable Care Act.  But after lying to Trumpanzees for over a year, “I have a plan and it’ll be done in the first day, maybe the first hour,” Trump has no plan, and it’s a lot more complicated than he told the Trumpanzees and he’s not the only one who has lied to them, the Republicans in the House and Senate have as well.
President Donald Trump noted with some exasperation Monday the complexity of the nation’s health laws, which he’s vowed to reform as part of a bid to scrap Obamacare.  “We have come up with a solution that’s really, really I think very good,” Trump said at a meeting of the nation’s governors at the White House.

“Now, I have to tell you, it’s an unbelievably complex subject,” he added. “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.”
Trump was speaking as Republicans on Capitol Hill continue to work toward developing a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, the Obama-era law which they argue is too costly and complicated. Trump has not yet gotten behind a GOP replacement measure, however, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan were hoping to convince Trump to support it during a meeting later Monday.
Trump is also expected to touch on health care during his first address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday evening.
During a meeting with health insurers, Trump lies as always and said a replacement plan would be unveiled soon.
“We have a plan that I think is going to be fantastic. It’s going to be released fairly soon,” Trump said Monday. “I think it’s going to be something special … I think you’re going to like what you hear.”
