Post-election Donald Trump is making healthcare promises he can’t keep. Here’s the transcript of Trump’s 60 Minutes interview from Forbes.
Stahl: And there’s going to be a period if you repeal it and before you replace it, when millions of people could lose -– no?
Trump: No, we’re going to do it simultaneously. It’ll be just fine. We’re not going to have, like, a two-day period and we’re not going to have a two-year period where there’s nothing. It will be repealed and replaced. And we’ll know. And it’ll be great healthcare for much less money. So it’ll be better healthcare, much better, for less money. Not a bad combination.
I would love to see great healthcare, that’s much better, and costs much less. But Trump has no idea how to make that happen and neither do his advisors nor the Republicans in Congress. I wonder if they believe their own rhetoric or if they realize it’s BS.
In any case, now it’s their responsibly to deliver.
