DURING THE CAMPAIGN, TRUMP
PROMISED HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF EVERYONE. HE IS PAPA TRUMP, HE
ALONE CAN PROTECT YOU. AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT NATIONAL
SECURITY, I’M TALKING ABOUT HEALTHCARE. DURING THE CAMPAIGN
HE SAID — THAT WAS REFERRING TO
HEALTHCARE. HOW WOULD THAT COST YOU VOTES? I LIKE THAT, AS IF HE
IS A TRUTH TELLER. YOU KNOW WHAT? CHICKEN IN EVERY POT. IT
MIGHT COST ME VOTES, BUT I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU, OKAY? AND WHEN
ASKED TO CLARIFY, HE OF LITTLE MIND CLARIFIED THIS WAY — THAT SOUNDS GOOD, LET’S DO
THAT. IN FACT, HIS DESCRIPTION SOUNDED A LOT LIKE UNIVERSAL
COVERAGE. DEAL! AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT IT LATER, HE SAID, OH,
WELL — HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT UNIVERSAL COVERAGE OR
SINGLE-PAYER IS, HE NEVER PUT ONE THOUGHT BEHIND IT. LET’S BE
FAIR, LET’S GIVE YOU WHAT HE SAID IN HIS OWN WORDS, THEN I
WILL GIVE YOU A SUPER IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON
WITH HEALTHCARE TODAY AND THE TRICK THEY ARE PLANNING. FIRST LET’S WATCH TRUMP AND WHAT
HE PROMISED. WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR
OBAMACARE? IT WOULD BE REPEALED AND
REPLACED, IT IS A DISASTER. ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY, SHORTLY
THEREAFTER, A PLAN. IT WILL BE REPEAL AND REPLACE. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. EVERYONE HAS TO BE COVERED, THIS
IS NOT A REPUBLICAN THING TO SAY BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES
THEY SAY THE LOWER 25% CAN’T AFFORD PRIVATE. UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE? I WILL TAKE CARE OF EVERYONE. IT WILL BE ESSENTIALLY
SIMULTANEOUSLY, IT WILL BE VARIOUS SEGMENTS, YOU
UNDERSTAND, BUT MOST LIKELY ON THE SAME DAY OR THE SAME WEEK,
BUT PROBABLY THE SAME DAY. COULD BE THE SAME HOUR. I DON’T CARE IF IT COST ME
VOTES, EVERYONE WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF. WE WILL GET A HEALTHCARE
BILL PASSED. THE UNINSURED PERSON WILL BE
TAKEN CARE OF? THEY WILL BE. I WOULD MAKE A DEAL WITH
EXISTING HOSPITALS TO TAKE CARE OF PEOPLE, AND THIS IS
PROBABLY — WHO PAYS FOR IT? THE GOVERNMENT WILL. OBAMACARE IS THE DEMOCRATS’
PROBLEM. WE WILL TAKE THE PROBLEM OFF THE SHELVES FOR
THEM. THEY CAN HAVE THEIR DOCTORS
AND THEIR PLANS AND EVERYTHING. REALLY? I LOVE THAT. SCOTT
PELLEY IS ASKING HIM, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE? HE IS LIKE, EVERYONE
WILL BE COVERED. PAY FOR IT? THE GOVERNMENT WILL PAY FOR IT. REALLY? AGAIN, DEAL! HE DOESN’T MEAN IT. NOW THAT THEY ARE IN
OFFICE, THE SECOND PART WAS REPEAL AND REPLACE,
SIMULTANEOUSLY, COULD BE SAME WEEK OR SAME DAY — WHY THAT
NEED FOR SPECIFICITY? YES, YOU COULD SIGN ONE BILL AND IT WOULD
HAPPEN SIMULTANEOUSLY. THAT’S RIGHT. NOW THEY REALIZE, OOPS,
REPEALING IS EASY, REPLACING IS INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT. BECAUSE
PEOPLE ARE SAYING I’VE GOT A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION, IS THE
NEW INSURANCE GOING TO BE FORCED TO COVER THAT OR WILL IT BE
OPTIONAL? IF IT IS OPTIONAL I WILL BE SCREWED, THEY MIGHT NOT
COVER ME AND I MIGHT DIE. ALL THESE PEOPLE WHO HAD INSURANCE
FROM OBAMACARE, WILL THEY HAVE INSURANCE AFTERWARDS? AND WHO
WILL PAY FOR THE NEW INSURANCE, AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COVER? NOW
DONALD REALIZES, IT TURNS OUT THIS IS COMPLICATED. LOOK AT
THIS RESPONSE FROM TODAY. WE HAVE COME UP WITH A
SOLUTION THAT IS GOOD, I HAVE TO TELL YOU IT’S AN UNBELIEVABLY
COMPLEX SUBJECT, NOBODY KNEW HEALTHCARE COULD BE SO
COMPLICATED. [LAUGHTER] EXCEPT ALL OF US. OF COURSE IT’S COMPLICATED. YOU ARE A CHILD. IT WILL BE GREAT,
FANTASTIC, WE WILL REPEAL AND REPLACE WITHIN SEVEN — NO, SIX
SECONDS, WE WILL DO THAT AND IT WILL BE EASY. EVERYBODY WILL BE
COVERED, DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE COST. GOLLY GEE, IT TURNS OUT
IT’S HARD. NOW, WHAT ARE THEY ACTUALLY GOING TO DO? WAIT UNTIL
YOU SEE IT. HUFFINGTON POST REPORTS — THAT IS YOUR ANSWER? IF
YOU’VE GOT THE MONEY FOR A ROLEX THEN YOU CAN GET IT. CONGRATULATIONS, A ROLEX FOR EVERYBODY. BUT WAIT, I DON’T
HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT. WELL, YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A ROLEX, DON’T
YOU? PROBLEM SOLVED. TED CRUZ MADE HIS ARGUMENT, BERNIE
SANDERS KILLED HIM ON IT, BUT THEY THINK THIS IS CLEVER. IT IS
LIKE WHAT RUSH LIMBAUGH SAID WHEN HE GOT SICK ON VACATION,
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? I JUST PAID FOR IT ON MY OWN. HE SAID IT WAS
THE COST OF HALF OF AN SUV, WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL? THAT IS A GIANT
DEAL FOR THE REST OF US! THEIR PLAN IS, YOU AREN’T GOING TO GET
INSURANCE UNLESS YOU ARE RICH. AMAZING. NOW, I JUST WANT TO
REPEAT ONE MORE TIME THE WORDS OF OUR PRESIDENT, GOD HELP US
ALL. QUOTE — AND FINALLY — HE IS A CHILD. ALL HE DID WAS
PROMISE YOU CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. IT’S SO IRONIC, BECAUSE ALL THE
TIME WHAT THEY SAID DEMOCRATS DO IS JUST PROMISE GIVEAWAYS TO
THEIR CONSTITUENTS, AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT TRUMP DID. SURE,
HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE. WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR IT? DON’T WORRY
ABOUT IT. THEN HE GETS INTO OFFICE, BOY, IT IS
COMPLICATED, I DIDN’T KNOW IT WOULD BE THAT TOUGH. WE HAVE A
GREAT SOLUTION. WHAT IS IT? AS USUAL, A SECRET. WELL, YOU WILL
HAVE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE MONEY. WE LAUGH
ABOUT IT NOW, IT WON’T BE FUNNY WHEN TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO INSURANCE ANYMORE. THEY NEVER HAD A PLAN
AND THEY DON’T HAVE ONE NOW. THEIR PLAN IS, AS ALWAYS, IF YOU
ARE RICH WE HAVE GREAT NEWS. FOR THE REST OF YOU, GOOD LUCK, YOU
ARE ON YOUR OWN.
