REPORT: White House Working on Secret Healthcare Plan

Trump's longtime NYC physician
The White House is secretly working on a healthcare policy proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the matter, reports the Washington Examiner.

The analyst said the administration has been “having conversations” on healthcare policy and has reached out to numerous think tanks, including the Heritage Foundation, the Mercatus Center, and the Hoover Institute.

All beltarian institutes or worse.

Some crony deal is brewing.

I mean consider this. Policy leaders at several conservative think tanks confirmed to the Examiner that a healthcare plan is indeed the works. They said a proposal would take concepts from the Graham-Cassidy bill, by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. and Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and the Health Care Choices proposal, which was signed by many conservative policy leaders, including the Heritage Foundation and former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Penn.

These are just wacky technocrats spinning the direction of government intervention. It would cut some federal spending on medical care but it would be far from a free market solution. To put it in terms Trump might understand, it is a combover of Obamacare.

But it appears as though it is coming. Trump said last week Tuesday that Republicans would soon become the "party of healthcare."

Then on Thursday, while speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, Trump said his administration was “working on a plan now” — though he said there was “no great rush” to roll out a proposal and added that he was waiting for the courts to repeal the ACA.

The president brought up healthcare again on Friday, claiming he would have a “much better” plan than Obamacare. “The health care’s going very well,” he told reporters in Florida.



  1. Mostly Trump cares about adulation. Most Republican voters are just as into "free shit" as any Democrat as long as they get a cut of the booty. They will cheer Trump for his "generosity." It's probably not going to be good.

    Note Rand Paul -- probably the most knowledgeable "legislator" on the subject -- was not mentioned anywhere.

  2. The fact that Rand Paul seem nowhere near this makes me laugh.

  3. "Trump said last week Tuesday that Republicans would soon become the "party of healthcare.""

    At least they'd be dropping the outdated moniker that they're the "party of the free market."
