Bob, I've been following Rand's statements on "repealing and replacing obamacare."RW response:
But one fundamental point that no one answers: I would like to know whether or not Trump and these republicans who keep saying "replace" obamacare are going to keep health insurance compulsory in America? No one is being direct and honest about this. Do you know the answer?
I believe the mandate will be repealed which was really a tax on youth who didn't need the high premium insurance that was mandated. The revenue was used to fund the cost of the truly ill.
However, Trump says he will insure everyone so it means he will have to increase a tax somewhere to replace the mandate revenue or balloon deficit spending. Sneaky stuff.
