The Republican-led government has managed to undo Obamacare regulations and offer its citizens the choice of more affordable healthcare packages, reports Scott W. Atlas of Fox News. Obamacare forced people to buy into coverage that included high premiums that were constantly rising. The GOP now allows different healthcare options, which costs less. This means Americans can choose which healthcare suits their needs at a price they can afford. Under Obamacare, patients also had fewer doctors and specialists to choose from. Over-regulating the US healthcare system this way was bad for consumers, which Republicans are rightly changing.
Since President Trump got elected, Republicans have been undermining Obamacare in ways that harm the public’s health coverage, infers Andy Slavitt of USA Today. Already the government has been taken to court by several states over this. It has made it harder to sign up, reduced support payments, caused prices to go up and undone laws that protected those with pre-existing conditions from discrimination. With threats and policies, Republicans have eroded trust in the Obamacare market, sowing uncertainty and raising costs. The law supports the program and Trump should be upholding it, by allowing it to succeed, not forcing it to fail.
