President Donald Trump indicated his willingness to support the bipartisan deal to stabilize Obamacare for a short period.
On Thursday, Trump said, “I respect very much the two senators you’re talking about. I love that they’re working on it.” That was his response when asked about his position on the bipartisan deal on Obamacare.
Additionally, the President stated that he only wants a temporary solution for Obamacare. He reiterated his objective to eventually repeal the current healthcare system.
“I want them to be careful with respect to the insurance companies. We will probably like a very short-term solution, until we hit the block grants, until that all kicks in…If they can do something like that, I’m open to it,” according to Trump.
Trump reiterated, “Various states really wanted that block grant money. And for the most part, I think we have the votes for that. There will be a transition period, so anything they’re working on will be short term. It’ll be absolutely short term because, ultimately, we will be — it’s going to be repeal and replace.”
