Trump says he hopes Supreme Court strikes down ObamaCare (423 hits)


Trump says he hopes Supreme Court strikes down ObamaCare

President Trump says in an interview with "60 Minutes" that he would like to see the Supreme Court "end" the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and that he would announce his own health care plan after the case is ruled on.

"It is developed. It is fully developed. It is going to be announced very soon when we see what happens with ObamaCare, which is not good," Trump said when questioned by CBS News correspondent Lesley Stahl on why he hasn't released the health care plan that he has long promised.

"It will be much less expensive than ObamaCare, which is a disaster, and it will take care of people with preexisting conditions," he continued.

Trump would not elaborate on how the plan would protect those with preexisting conditions. He claimed that "pieces" of his plan had been released before, saying later that it "will" be developed and suggesting that despite his assurances it has not been fully formed.

"We have to see what happens. It's got a ways to go. We'll see what happens," Trump said of his administration's current efforts to challenge the ACA, a case the Supreme Court is slated to take up in November following the presidential election.

"I hope that they end it. It will be so good if they end it because we will come up with a plan," Trump said.

Stahl pressed Trump on his plan, noting that he used the word "will" when discussing its formation. She repeatedly noted that many Americans would be "scrambling" if the Supreme Court strikes down ObamaCare without Republicans having a plan to replace it.

"Yeah, we will," Trump replied. "We have large sections of it already done and we have already come up with plans."

Trump has made clear before that he would like to see the ACA struck down. Still, his remarks to "60 Minutes" undermine efforts by Republicans to downplay the threat to the previous administration's signature health care law during the confirmation fight over Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

After Democrats mounted an effort to portray Barrett as a threat to the health care law during her confirmation hearings last week, Republicans tried to downplay the chances that the high court will ultimately strike down the law. Conservative legal scholars have said that the Supreme Court is unlikely to side with the Trump administration in its efforts.

"No one believes the Supreme Court is going to strike down the Affordable Care Act," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said last week during a debate with his Democratic challenger.

If successful, the lawsuit would result in about 20 million people losing health insurance, and popular protections for individuals with preexisting conditions would be eliminated. Polls have shown that a majority of Americans have a favorable view of the health care law.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) immediately seized on Trump's remarks.

"Now we know why Trump was so mad about this interview. He just made it transparently obvious to the American people that his only plan for health care is to take away yours," said DNC War Room spokesperson Daniel Wessel in a statement. "Trump's demand that the Supreme Court overturn the Affordable Care Act would rip health care away from tens of millions of Americans and end protections for as many as 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions. That's been his position from day one and it's clear nothing's changed."

Trump released the White House's own video of his "60 Minutes" interview on Thursday, in defiance of an agreement with CBS News. The interview, taped Tuesday, is supposed to air during Sunday's program. Trump did so after growing angry with Stahl and claiming her questions were unfair before walking out and terminating the interview.

Shortly before he released the clip, GOP senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Barrett's nomination even as Democrats boycotted the panel vote. The full Senate is expected to vote to confirm Barrett early next week.

Trump's release of the video also comes hours before his final debate with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has hammered the president over his attacks on ObamaCare and protections for preexisting conditions.

To all the Trump supports out here, I have a question and maybe you can help me understand.

Why would you support a candidate for the President of The United States of America, who wants to take away Health Care in this country and he has no replacement for it?

I really need to understand that.

Deacon Ron Gray
Of course Trump WILL replace it.

Thursday, October 22nd 2020 at 6:13PM
Steve Williams
With WHAT? Have you seen it? Trump won't replace Health Care because he has been LYING to his followers since he got into office and you don't believe that, do you?

There may not be an end to the ACA. The Supreme Court might find it can stand without the individual mandate. There's no point in acting on new legislation until the court hands down a decision on the matter of severability. This is NOT Trump's decision you dodo.

Who in the Republican Party decision is it Steve?

At the moment the Senate Republicans are in control, and President Trump.

YOUR WORDS: This is NOT Trump's decision you dodo.

MY REPLY: Who in the Republican Party decision is it Steve?

YOUR REPLY: At the moment the Senate Republicans are in control, and President Trump.

MY REPLY: Then it is The President of The United States of America decision, what did you call me, you dodo." (LAUGHTER…)

The decision is NOW with the court Ron. Why are you talking about Republicans?

Thursday, October 22nd 2020 at 11:25PM
Steve Williams
Don’t you understand that the Republicans are going to put a supreme court judge on the bench?


Friday, October 23rd 2020 at 12:06AM
Deacon Ron Gray
So what? You don't know how Barrett will decide the case. You don't even know what the case is about. You say stupid things, like it will be "struck down". Do you know what is meant by the legal term "severability" Ron?

What does this paragraph mean to you Steve:

Severability

In law, severability (sometimes known as salvatorius, from Latin) refers to a provision in a contract or piece of legislation which states that if some of the terms are held to be illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder should still apply. Sometimes, severability clauses will state that some provisions to the contract are so essential to the contract's purpose that if they are illegal or unenforceable, the contract as a whole will be voided. However, in many legal jurisdictions, a severability clause will not be applied if it changes the fundamental nature of the contract, and that instead the contract will be void; thus, often this is not explicitly stated in the severability clause.

and your point is?

The point is simple Ron. If the individual mandate is severable from the rest of the law then the law will be just as it is now. We will have the ACA still, and we will NOT have the individual mandate STILL.

Friday, October 23rd 2020 at 11:24AM

In my opinion, the ACA is "safe". All you have to do is figure out how to pay the HUGE cost of covering preexisting conditions.

Why do you think The Republicans of forcing this judge for The Supreme Court on the bench?



Friday, October 23rd 2020 at 11:55AM
Deacon Ron Gray
I think they did the right thing. When fortune smiles on you why would you refuse it?

Friday, October 23rd 2020 at 12:13PM
Steve Williams
I did not ask you if the republicans did the right thing or not. I asked you to tell you: "Why do you think The Republicans of forcing this judge for The Supreme Court on the bench?"

Deacon Ron Gray
No force was used Ron.A Constitutionally prescribed procedure is being followed.

Saturday, October 24th 2020 at 1:52AM
Steve Williams
Then why wasn't that same constitutionally prescribed procedure was being followed during Obama's term in office to put a judge on The Supreme Court Steve?"


?

It was followed then too. The Senate did not consent.

BULL 💩 Steve, this is a POWER PLAY by the very same people, Moscow Mitch and The Republican Party. Long live the empire... WOW!!!

Senators who don't adhere to the Constitution should be impeached Ron.

Suck it up and stop being a baby.

Steve Williams
Is that ALL YOU GOT Steve? (LAUGHTER…) Trump has no plans for the future neither. You both are in the same boat, up the river without a paddle.
