One of President Trump’s campaign promises was that he would fix American healthcare. He promised to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and while doing so he told us that coming up with a healthcare bill would be “so easy”. Here we are, about 6 months into his presidency and neither he nor the rest of the GOP have come up with a reliable solution to fixing healthcare in America. In fact, Trump has seemingly had no say in the matter, leaving it up to the Senate and Congress to come up with a plan on their own.
Now, in an almost humorous turn of events, the GOP, via Twitter, is asking Hillary Clinton for her healthcare plan. Yesterday, the official GOP Twitter account published a video showing Hillary Clinton saying, “I’ve been saying, we’ve got to fix what’s broken.” Above that video, the GOP wrote, “‘We’ve got to fix what’s broken.’ Where’s your plan, @HillaryClinton?”
This is irony at its finest, in that Hillary Clinton was not elected president — at least not according to the electoral college. President Trump was elected and has been unable, and almost unwilling to try and come up with a solution for American healthcare. Now we have the GOP asking Hillary for her plan, like it’s somehow her responsibility now to fix what’s broken. What’s even more entertaining about this whole public display by the GOP is that Hillary Clinton actually responded with quite the comeback. Her response was:
“Right here. Includes radical provisions like how not to kick 23 mil ppl off their coverage. Feel free to run w/it.
The link she posted directs to her plan for healthcare, had she been elected President, but what’s better is that she tells the GOP to “feel free to run with it”. The plan is basically one that calls for expanding upon ObamaCare, fixing the flaws that it currently has, and making healthcare more affordable and available to all. While the plan appears to be a solid one, the GOP simply wont’ “run with it” because they are fixated on upholding Trump’s promise to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare. Removing President Obama’s name from American healthcare has apparently been goal number one for Trump all along.
