President Trump says Obamacare ‘is dead,’ touts flipping Republicans’ no votes to yes for GOP replacement plan

Trump on Friday said that the current state of Obamacare necessitates that bill passing Congress.

“Only because everyone knows it’s on its last, dying feet, the fake news is trying to say good things about it, the fake media. There is no good news about Obamacare. Obamacare’s dead,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office after his meeting with lawmakers.

“And there is no good news about Obamacare. Obamacare’s dead.”

“Unless we gave it massive subsidies, it’s not going to be there,” he said. “It’s a disaster … it’s on a respirator, and it’s about ready to implode.”

“Now, we could wait for six months or a year, and let it happen,” Trump said. “It’s not the right thing to do for the people.”
