Changes to the Affordable Care Act may affect nurses

In an interview on Sunday with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, however, Trump said that the Obamacare replacement was "in the process and maybe it'll take till sometime into next year".

House Speaker Paul Ryan last week set a deadline of the end of March for repealing most of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), as other Republican leaders and conservative rank-and-file lawmakers advocated competing policy alternatives for what would follow the health law.

But, Trump also told Bill O'Reilly that some elements of his plan could be in place this year. The GOP Congress and President Trump must also keep another of their campaign promises - to do right by American workers - if they want this repeal to truly improve the lives and health care of the American people. "You have to remember, Obamacare doesn't work so we are putting in a wonderful plan", he said.

"It statutorily takes a while to get", Trump said. About 50 people from 20 states were arrested for breaking the law against protesting in a Senate office building.

As now written, the Obamacare Replacement Act repeals Obamacare and its costly regulations and offers reforms that will will reduce excess taxation, wasteful spending, return health insurance regulation to the states, and provide more choices for Americans.

Mr. Trump, who seemed unclear about the timing of already scheduled votes in Congress this week, demanded a repeal vote "probably some time next week", and said "the replace will be very quickly or simultaneously, very shortly thereafter". Orrin Hatch, have recently referred to GOP work to oust Obamacare as "repair" efforts instead of "repeal". Recently, however, Republicans have shifted their tone regarding the ACA, choosing to call their plan a "repair" of the law rather than a "repeal."

Hospital administrators say the level of uncertainty involved with ACA repeal and replacement is a big cause of concern. To that end, I spoke on the Senate floor earlier this month to again offer up my ideas, which can be found on my website at

Senator Lamar Alexander mentioned in one of his hearings that Obamacare could be considered as the collapsing bridge since it has not been able to gain much stronghold.

The political implications of 35% of Americans not knowing that Obamacare and the ACA are the same things will be a complete disaster for Republicans after people realize that Trump has demolished their health insurance. Ever since Trump's election - and even years before - the GOP has been hoping, praying, and grinding through the mechanics of a replacement strategy, but that trajectory is entirely dependent on an unnatural act for the GOP.
