Donald Trump isn’t going to be one of those presidents who makes a lot of promises during the campaign and then doesn’t follow through.
He promised to get rid of Obamacare, and it’s already happening, even before Trump sets foot in the White House.
Early Thursday morning, the Senate voted 51-48 in favor of a budget resolution instructing House and Senate committees to begin repealing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Democrats made their best effort to oppose the motion, forcing Republicans to vote on things that could embarrass them in future elections.
But it seems the closer we get to January 20, the more people are falling in line with Donald Trump’s agenda.
Regardless of the potential backlash against them, Republican senators voted as they knew the president-elect would want.
And with a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, it was enough to carry the day.
Obamacare is going away. It was called the Affordable Care Act. But for some many Americans, it was anything but affordable.
Obamacare caused insurance premiums to spike, and then fined anyone who didn’t pay for coverage.
I don’t think that’s the kind of health care reform Americans were looking for.
And President-elect Trump intends to work for the American people.
