Trump vows 'insurance for everybody'
U.S. President-elect Donald Trump aims to replace Obamacare with a plan that would provide "insurance for everyone," he said in an interview with the Washington Post.
Trump did not give the newspaper specifics about his proposals to replace Obama's signature law, but said the plan would be ready to be reviled soon after the Republican president-elect takes office on Friday. The plan, he said, would include "lower numbers, much lower deductibles," but did not elaborate on specifics about the plan. “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” Trump was also quoted as saying in the interview that he would target pharmaceutical companies over drug pricing and insist they negotiate directly with the Medicare and Medicaid government health plans for the elderly and poor.
