Trump's Views on Healthcare

When Donald Trump was just a canidate, he released a plan called, "Healthcare Reform to Make America Great Again." He wants to completely get rid of Obamacare and because he believes that it has made our economy worse than it has been in decades. He wants to place a plan in place called, " Health Savings Account."

One big factor that is commonly talked about is Trump's views on abortion. Trump is a Christian, and is also pro-life. He wants to put an abortion law in place, stopping all abortions. He had claimed to be pro-choice for a while, as seen in interviews from 2000. When he decided to run for president, he claimed he had evolved and was now pro-life.

Trump also believes that vaccinations cause Autism. He doesn't think that we should stop vaccinations but he thinks we shouldn't pump a two year old with a vaccine. He believes that if we stopped pumping babies with vaccinations, Autism would go down in numbers.

Quotes from Trump about healthcare

"TRUMP: As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, I'm pro-life. I'm totally against abortion, having to do with Planned Parenthood. But millions and millions of women -- cervical cancer, breast cancer -- are helped by Planned Parenthood. So you can say whatever you want, but they have millions of women going through Planned Parenthood that are helped greatly. And I wouldn't fund it. I would defund it because of the abortion factor, which they say is 3 percent. I don't know what percentage it is. They say it's 3%. But I would defund it, because I'm pro-life. But millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood."

"One thing we have to do: Repeal and replace the disaster known as Obamacare. It's destroying our country. It's destroying our businesses. You take a look at the kind of numbers that that will cost us in the year '17, it is a disaster. It's probably going to die of its own weight. But Obamacare has to go. The premiums are going up 60 , 70 , 80 percent. Bad health care at the most expensive price. We have to repeal and replace Obamacare."

Tom Price's Opinion (Secretary of Health Nominee)

Tom Price is an orthopedic surgeon from the suburbs of Atlanta. He has been against Obamacare since the first time he heard of it back in 2010. Donald Trump has appointed him as his Secretary of Health because of his medical degree and skills in politics. Price and Trump have very similar views as one another, both thinking that Obamacare and abortion should not be a part of the United States.

Impact of the new Healthcare administration

A lot of people will start to lose healthcare and benefits. Millions of people rely on Obamacare to get the care they need. Donald Trump has promised to come up with a better solution for these millions of people. Taxes will be lowered because Trump will be taking away Obamacare,

Changes I Think Will Be Made

Changes that will be made will be that taxes will be lowered. Healthcare will be taken away for a short amount of time from people who need it.
