It was one of his biggest campaign promises: to Repeal and Replace Obamacare.
Here’s how it sounded on the campaign trail:
Just like any good, world-class businessman would do, it now looks like Trump is making all the necessary preparations to make that HAPPEN!
Donald Trump has stacked his cabinet with some of the most outspoken opponents to Obamacare, and people who he can rely on to not only REPEAL the terrible Obama law, but REPLACE IT immediately with something much better.
Folks, this change is going to happen faster and more professionally than anything you have ever seen come out of Washington before!
Get ready to be amazed.
More on the story from the Washington Examiner:
President-elect Trump is filling his Cabinet with people who for years have resisted Obamacare, making it likely the new administration will pull back on the healthcare law at every turn.
Incoming Labor Secretary Andy Puzder has twice testified before Congress against the law. Environmental Protection Agency administrator nominee Scott Pruitt has sued the federal government over it. Incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions has backed efforts to defund it. Future Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has publicly criticized it. And Rep. Tom Price, who was nominated to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, has proposed an alternative to it.
Most of the jurisdiction over the Affordable Care Act resides at the Department of Health and Human Services, and that agency will be led by Price, assuming his nomination is confirmed by the Senate, a doctor and one of the healthcare law’s harshest critics who has proposed his own health reform alternative several times.
So Trump’s team of appointees will be able to act on their long-time opposition to the Affordable Care Act by clamping down on parts of the law, even without a repeal vote by Congress.
“It is true what they say, that personnel is policy,” said Chris Jennings, a prominent former healthcare adviser to the Obama White House.
Puzder has been picked to lead the Department of Labor, an agency with some oversight over employer-sponsored health coverage and influence over the Affordable Care Act. Labor has a role in working with HHS to determine the essential health benefits that individual and small group plans must cover and helping define some of the specific rules around which workers are eligible for coverage.
