Trump Talks Obamacare Alternative

While taking fire for his prior support of a single-payer health system, Donald Trump gave a hint into what he would do after repealing Obamacare.

The businessman and reality TV star said during the first GOP primary debate on Thursday that he wants to dismantle what he called “artificial lines” among the states and enable insurers to not be restricted when offering plans.

“Get rid of the artificial lines and you will have yourself great plans,” he said.

Fox News moderator Bret Baier asked Trump about his prior support 15 years ago for a single-payer health system.

Trump responded that the single-payer healthcare systems in Scotland and Canada worked for those countries 15 years ago, when he made the comments supporting single payer. But now it is a different age.

While declining to elaborate on what is different more than a decade later, the businessman outlined his vision for healthcare.
