The senator said he's spoken to "a high-ranking person in the president's inner circle", who told him that the "broad outline" of Trump's plan closely resembled congressional GOP proposals.
"I think it is more accurate to say fix Obamacare because, for example, in the reconciliation procedure that we have in the Senate, we can't repeal all of Obamacare", said Sen.
The statement is contrary to multiple assurances made by Trump and Republican Party members that Congress will repeal and replace the law as soon as possible.
Maybe I could blame liberals in general, as their constant push for a national health care system prevents us from perfecting a market-based system where only the best plans survive. Lawmakers are also slowing the time line to repeal and replace major sections of the law. "It will be essentially simultaneously".
Bill O'Reilly: Can Americans in 2017 expect a new healthcare plan rolled out by the Trump Administration? With college dues and other financial hardships that young adults face in today's world, the average student will not be able to afford his or her own health insurance. If Democrats see that Trump is toxic next year, they'll refuse to sign on to a GOP replacement plan and suddenly Republicans will be in limbo, with ObamaCare set to expire shortly and the Senate paralyzed due to a Democratic filibuster.
Industry leaders throughout the state had been preparing for different scenarios for health-care reform well before the November election that put Donald Trump in the White House. "We will fix the damage that Obamacare has caused millions of Americans".

Republicans have already begun work to repeal Obamacare.
One of the aspects that President Trump plans to work on is minimizing the unwarranted regulatory and economic burdens of the ACA. Pence said he interprets the "repair" language being used by Alexander and others as referring to that orderly transition.
Health Insurance Commissioner Kathleen Hittner is scheduled to talk about the impact on health insurance costs. "The president's committed to that".
Still, according to Bloomberg, the House Energy and Commerce Committee examined four draft bills last week "that could serve as a basis for some of the earliest moves by Republicans to replace pieces of the law".
Georgia Health News reported in December that enrollment in the health insurance exchange in Georgia had shown a slight increase. Insurers had hoped that climbing sign-ups could improve their financial results from sales of Obamacare plans.
The political implications of 35% of Americans not knowing that Obamacare and the ACA are the same things will be a complete disaster for Republicans after people realize that Trump has demolished their health insurance.
