President Donald Trump delivered a speech to Congress on the future of healthcare on Friday, outlining his vision for a new healthcare system that would lower costs, lower premiums and cut the cost of access.
The President told lawmakers that his new plan would be funded with tax revenues from a new insurance tax and would be paid for with savings from repealing and replacing Obamacare, but he didn’t provide details about the new plan.
The speech, which was made public at 2:30 p.m.
ET, was the most comprehensive outline of Trump’s vision for healthcare yet.
Trump spoke from a teleprompter for the first time in a speech that was more about his personal history than anything else, focusing on the challenges facing the US, his family, and his business.
Trump also focused on the need to “protect the lives of all Americans.”
“The American people are tired of seeing the government rip off the American people,” he said.
“The American workers who make this country great deserve better than this.
We must protect the lives and health of all people.
We are working to deliver this vision to you today.”
The president’s speech was full of details about his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, which has been in place since 2009, but there was little detail about what his plan would look like.
The plan is expected to cost the government $5.5 trillion over a decade, and the president has been clear that the plan is meant to cover the uninsured, which means it would likely not cover every person who wants to buy insurance.
The plan will also not address the cost-sharing reductions that help offset out-of-pocket expenses for lower-income people, which Trump has previously said he would like to do.
“This plan will not cover everyone.
It will not lower costs.
It does not repeal Obamacare,” Trump said in the speech.
“But it will provide much better coverage for the American family, especially for families that work and live paycheck to paycheck.”
Trump has previously argued that repealing and then replacing Obamacare is a bad idea, and he has said that his healthcare plan will provide better coverage than Obamacare for Americans.
Trump has also repeatedly stated that he will keep Obamacare’s individual mandate and other requirements, including that people obtain health insurance, and that he wants to make sure people get access to affordable health care.
However, some of Trumps more outlandish claims about his healthcare plans have been debunked by fact-checkers, including the idea that the cost savings he claims would come from lowering the cost and reducing the premiums of people with preexisting conditions, and a claim that his plan will cover people with pre-existing conditions.
Trump’s plan will likely require insurance companies to offer a lower-cost plan to all of their customers, but not everyone will be able to afford it.
Trump has repeatedly said that the price of his plan won’t go up to a certain amount.
He has also said that he has already made his first major healthcare announcement, announcing that he was cutting the number of people eligible for Medicaid.
This announcement followed the announcement that he would stop paying for the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid, which would allow more people to enroll in the program.
Trump did not provide details on how he would fund his healthcare savings plan, and whether it would be offset by eliminating taxes or other policies.
The president has previously claimed that the savings will come from cutting Medicaid and Medicare, and Republicans in Congress have said that eliminating these programs would likely cost the US economy more than the $5 trillion Trump’s plan would cost.
But the president said he will be “working to bring down the cost for everybody.”
“Our goal is to lower costs for everyone.
Not just for those who can pay, but also for those that cannot,” he added.
“We will be working with Congress to lower premiums, to bring back jobs, and to make healthcare more affordable.
The American people will be proud of what we’re achieving, and we’ll keep fighting to make our healthcare system better for everyone.”
