The Best of Times?
By many reckonings, it appears to be the best of
times in America: We enjoy a robust economy,
reinforced by continually advancing technologies. At
least one computer in every home, and a personal
telephone on almost everyone’s belt. People are
buying their 3rd and 4th cars. Our military is the
most feared throughout the world. Indeed, in many
ways, it seems like the best of times.

President Donald J. Trump continued building momentum this week toward fulfilling one of the most important promises he made to the American people: the repeal and replacement of Obamacare. After seven long years of disaster, President Trump and Republicans in Congress have begun the process of fixing America’s broken healthcare system and giving the power back to the American people.
It’s been seven years since Obamacare was passed, and now, more than ever, we are seeing the harmful effects of this disastrous law.
Obamacare has led to higher costs and fewer health insurance options for millions of hard-working Americans. Independent analysis found 41 states faced higher average healthcare deductibles last year, with 17 states facing double-digit rate increases. Nearly one in five Americans have only one insurer offering Obamacare exchange plans.
In just the past year, Obamacare premiums have increased by 25 percent on the typical plan and coverage choices have dropped by 28 percent as insurers have left the market.
Things are only getting worse. This past year, nearly 20 million American citizens opted not to get healthcare insurance, with 6.5 million paying the penalty and millions more asking for a hardship exemption from the penalty.
Americans were promised that Obamacare would bring down healthcare costs -- that promise was broken. Americans were promised they could keep their healthcare plans under Obamacare – that promise was broken. Americans were promised that Obamacare would not raise taxes on the middle-class – that promise was broken.
The American people want change and President Donald J. Trump promised to repeal and replace this disaster. That is exactly what the President is working with Congress to achieve. Step up and support the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
