His plan is for the 95% of the people covered by Private Insurance to keep the plan and their doctor unlike Ex Pres Obama and the Democrats who want to destroy all those Options.

The real President who actually means "If you like your plan you can keep your plan, If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor".

Unlike the last Idiot in charge.

Pre-ACA I couldn't afford to cover my husband on my plan at work. There were years we were without insurance because it was too expensive. So no, just being covered by private insurance isn't the panacea you think it is. More than a decade ago my doctor wanted me to get an ultrasound. The insurance company said no. I didn't get it. Our healthcare system needs to be revamped. The ACA was a start, and I think we could work with that. It sure has helped us and millions of others, although I know it's very expensive for many. At least it's a start.

Mainstream media will never tell you anything good this President has done or plans to do. That's why so many intelligent people WalkWay from the Dem party, which controls 90% of the media.

Lot of health related information (83 web pages of links) on the White House website

So that's 27 million without - and you seem to think this is impressive?

Unfortunately, I don't see there ever being one. As a dual citizen who has lived in several countries and travelled in many, I've never heard anyone who would trade their system for that of the US.

If anything, most really feel for the Americans, who live in mortal terror of losing their jobs or die early, watch their children suffer, lose their homes, and have to resort to begging on GoFundMe, all for something that the rest of us around the developed world take for granted as a basic human right.

But the US knows nothing else, and change is scary to people, even if the change is a positive one. That's why many people stay in abusive relationships, or why lottery winners subconsciously rush to go back to being broke again.

That's - not a plan. That's a declaration of intent.

In other news, my plan is to have a hot date with Brooke Shields. I haven't taken any steps towards making it happen, but hey - it's a plan!

Lol. Here's the new plan--get your prescription drugs from Canada because the US doesn't have the spine to put price controls on drugs here because the Swamp Monsters in Congress take too much money from the pharmaceutical companies to stand up to them.

It sounds like Trump, et. al., are too cowardly to really stand up to lobbyists for Big Pharma (and their Big Money donors) and fight them.

So Trump naively states he's going to allow importing drugs from Canada, as he hasn't a clue how the process or government works or the regulatory hurdles involved with medicine. It would take years, and again...the lobbyists and Big Pharma.

And that's only because the ACA still exists. Before the ACA it was closer to 15-16% being completely uninsured.

The percentage of people who had garbage insurance plans that unceremoniously dropped them the minute they made a claim was likely much higher than that.
