Trump Promises Obamacare Will Be Replaced By Health Insurance for Everyone

Donald Trump pledges a health insurance that everyone can use to replace Obamacare. Even before Trump’s victory as POTUS, he has always been vocal about his decision to repeal Obamacare. This caused people to be very concerned about the big changes on their insurance especially the birth control methods for women.

According to President Trump, the new health insurance is already in the formulation and should be ready anytime soon. He assures the public that it will be an insurance for everyone and promises it will provide very good health care to all.

The new health insurance program will reportedly be much simpler and less expensive which should be good news to all. "We're going to have insurance for everybody. 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." He added.

One of the reasons why the public likes the Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act is because of its requirement for companies to provide health assistance to people who are already sick, elderly and need medical care. However, this act caused the law to have higher premiums, bigger fees and big insurance companies leaving the U.S. market.

This is probably the reason why repealing and dismantling this act is one of the tasks that Trump has in his priority list. As of today, Republicans have already passed a bill that Democrats just can’t block and it's to stop the implementation of Obamacare. The Senate has already approved the bill and has instructed committees to start working on the repeal legislation.

This news has caused a mixed reaction to the public. Just earlier this week, women have been voicing out their concern in social media regarding their access to birth control methods. The changes in insurance policies may cause women’s access to birth control be limited, offered at a higher price or even not covered at all by the insurance.

For that reason, women are now looking for methods that will last until the end of Trump’s presidency.
