Obamacare: Trump pushes back plan to replace legislation as popularity grows

Donald Trump’s comments on Sunday suggesting that a replacement for Obamacare may not arrive until 2018 coincides with crowds turning out to pressure Republicans not to scrap the system too hastily.

On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly promised one of his first actions as president would be to simultaneously repeal and replace the landmark healthcare legislation – a plan that was heartily endorsed by Republican lawmakers.

And as recently as mid-January he told the Washington Post he was near completing a plan which would provide “insurance for everybody”, without revealing details. 

But in a Fox News interview that aired Sunday night, Trump said of replacing Obamacare: “In the process and maybe it will take till sometime into next year, but we are certainly going to be in the process. It’s very complicated.”

He continued to say it would “statutorily take a while” to get a new healthcare plan.
