No specifics, of course.

Trump did not give the newspaper specifics about his proposals to replace Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature health insurance law, but said the plan was nearly finished and he was ready to unveil it alongside the leaders of the Republican-controlled Congress. The Republican president-elect takes office on Friday.

“It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes. We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon,” Trump told the [Washington] Post, adding he was waiting for his nominee for health and human services secretary, Tom Price, to be confirmed.

The plan, he said, would include “lower numbers, much lower deductibles,” without elaborating.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

    Based on his previous statement’s veracity, I would say that means that there WON’T be insurance for everybody, it will have FEWER numbers and HIGHER premiums and deductibles. And if you can’t pay for it, well, sucks to be you!

    • whatthe46

      the only way he would do anything like that would be if he can line his pockets.

          BTW, what’s with this ” comments continue after advertisement” that I keep seeing? I use uBlock, so I don’t see ads. Are there ads I should see? Because I’ll except this site, annoying as the floating adsense thing is……

          • mea_mark

            I’m not seeing the ads either. I know it is something that Disqus created to help sites that use their comment system to raise additional revenue though. Hopefully they are keeping it toned down.

    When I first read this my first reaction was OMG- SINGLE PAYER!!! I was imagining him screwing over the GOP by presenting a plan that goes way past the ACA. Then reality sank in. I remembered all the people he’s nominated and how they are all well known opponents of any role by the Feds in health insurance.

    No, what we’ll get is a program where you get a book with vouchers in it. when you exhaust the paltry benefits it represents, you die.

      let me guess, low deductibles for millionaires, and to be “FAIR” the same for workers -who will not have employment?

    Why don’t we scrap this insurance crap and get straight to Quality Heath Care for Everybody ? It always seems we have to have a Middleman that is lining His Pockets.

                  You know as well as I that the phrase about ramming things down their throats is an almost CONSTANT… “complaint” (heheheh) from those on your side of the ideological spectrum. Here’s some wonderful examples for you:

                  I find it especially hysterical when they “complain” about teh gayz shoving things down conservafraud’s throats.

          will it be discussed in ‘open’ forum…or merely rammed down our throats?

        • arc99

          Republicans: pretend the ACA is so awful but have no way to replace it.

          it is not leftist propaganda. the right wing talking point has been for years, tax credits, block grants and vouchers (debit cards).

          those are the primary features of Ryan’s so-called plan. recycled talking points are not a plan.

          it has nothing about pre existing conditions
          it has nothing about preventing insurance companies from cancelling your coverage
          it has nothing about allowing young adult children to remain on their parents’ policy

          your link looks more like a talking point cheat sheet for Ryan when he goes on FOX, instead of anything resembling a realistic alternative to the ACA

        • oldfart

          “Both parties need to step up to the plate with specific solutions to our nation’s health care crisis,” added Ryan ”

          Typical, all platitude, no real numbers, AKA no plan…how republican.
          Nevermind that the ACA was a republican idea from the Heritage foundation and the only way it got passed was with the insurance companies and the pharmaceuticals blessing.

        • bpollen

          The very fact that you cite Paul “yeah, we gotta a plan… it’s… a secret!” Ryan as a SOLUTION to anything other than being being a GOOD policy wonk (cuz he ain’t) proves you don’t have a leg… or anything else to stand on.

        • Adam Charlie

          That’s all they believe in. They actually thought they were going to win the presidency this past November because the media told them so LMAO!!!

    • granpa.usthai

      that’s odd.

      what entity has been talking about improving the economy with high paying jobs for all? – personal corporation choices?

      -or was it government force?

    • arc99

      Democrats/Liberals/Socialists – Solution to improve lives: follow the model of every other western industrialized nation on the planet.

      Republicans/Libertarians – Solution to improve lives: let corporations run everything where profit is always more important than the fundamental needs of human beings.

      Fixed it for you..
