Clinton wants to keep and improve the Affordable Care Act
“I have been listening to people across Iowa about what’s on your minds; what you want to see in the next President. And I am more convinced than ever that we need to have a democratic President in the White House to succeed President Obama”
“And let me also say I will defend the Affordable Care Act which the republicans still seem intent upon repealing. This one really is so maddening to me. And I will tell you though that if they were ever to elect a republican President they would repeal the Affordable Care Act because they’re in too deep. They’re too committed to it, they’ve said it too many times, they’re going to have a vote I think today to try to do it again. Never present an alternative except in the vaguest of rhetoric. So I will defend it but I will also work to improve it.”
“But those people on the other side let me be more precise. Those people on the other side they will answer any question about climate change by saying “I’m not a scientist” Well I’m not a scientist either I’m just a grandmother with two eyes and a brain and I know we’re facing a huge problem from climate change.“
Trump wants to repeal and replace Obamacare with universal health care.
SCOTT PELLEY: What’s your plan for Obamacare?
DONALD TRUMP: Obamacare is going to be repealed and replaced. Obamacare’s a disaster. If you look at what’s going on with premiums where their up 45, 50, 55 percent….
PELLEY: So how do you fix it?
TRUMP: There’s many different ways by the way. Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an unrepublican thing for me to say because a lot of times they say no, no the lower 25 percent they can’t afford private but…
PELLEY: Universal health care?
TRUMP: I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of, much better than they’re taken care of now.
PELLEY: The uninsured person is going to be taken care of?
TRUMP: They’re going to be taken care of
TRUMP: I would make a deal with existing hospitals to take care of people and you know what this is probably….
PELLEY: Make a deal? Who pays for it?
TRUMP: The governments going to pay for it but we’re going to save so much money on the other side. But for the most part it’s going to be a private plan and people are going to be able to go out and negotiate great plans with lots of different competition with lots of competitors with great companies and they can have their doctors they can have their plans they can have everything.
