The President of the United States Donald trump commented on the decision of the Republicans to withdraw from a vote in the house of representatives a bill to abolish a program of universal health insurance Obamacare. In an interview with The Washington Post, the head of state explained that the lack of votes, as well as the desire to allow the project to prove its inconsistency.
According to the American leader, bill to repeal Obamacare has not received the support of the Democrats. “As you know, I’ve been told that it is best to give Obamacare to “explode”, and then to negotiate with the Democrats and get a unified document,” said trump.
The President believes that this outcome is possible “not-so-distant future.” “I don’t think it will happen in time”, — quotes its RIA Novosti.
In addition, trump commented on the accusation that refusing to replace Obamacare, he has not fulfilled one of his campaign promises. “I never said I was going to cancel or replace the programme within the first 60 days,” — said the American leader.
Representatives of the Republican party withdrew a bill to repeal Obamacare March 24. “We did everything we could. It’s a setback, no question about it, but it’s not the end of history (…). I don’t know how much time we’ll need to (act on health care services — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), replace”, — said the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan.
The project of Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) was enacted in 2010 with 44th US President Barack Obama and have allowed more than 25 million not previously insured individuals to provide a medical service. However, for those who do not receive subsidies from the state, the cost of insurance has increased. Republicans repeatedly stated that Obamacare is too costly for the budget. The cancellation of this project was one of the campaign promises of Donald trump.
