Trump: ‘ObamaCare Is a Disaster ... We Made It Barely Acceptable’
TRUMP: "But just so you understand, ObamaCare is a disaster, but we have run it very well and we've made it barely acceptable. It was a disaster under President Obama, and it’s very bad health care. What we want to do is terminate it and give great health care, we'll have great health care, including pre-existing conditions, 100 percent pre-existing conditions. Now, we've already pretty much killed it because we got rid of the individual mandate. Getting rid of the individual mandate, which was by far the most unpopular thing in ObamaCare, that’s where for the privilege of paying a fee, you don’t have to buy health insurance at a ridiculous price for not good health insurance, it was a terrible thing. You are mandated to pay something in order not to pay. And we got rid of that, that's gone. And nobody thinks it’s ever going to come back. But what we are doing is we want to terminate health care under ObamaCare, because it's bad, and we are replacing it with a great health care at far less money and it includes pre-existing conditions. There will never be a time when we don't have pre-existing conditions included. So what I’m saying there, John, is we are going to replace ObamaCare with great health care at a lesser price and pre-existing conditions will be included. And you won't have the individual mandate, which was expensive and terrible and very unfair to everybody, and it was very unpopular."
