Americans expect Trump to repeal Obamacare, but replacing it will be complicated

Buck Sexton

Buck Sexton is joined by Guy Benson, Townhall's political editor and contributor at Fox News, to discuss the recent poll from Fox News saying "68 percent of Americans expect Trump to repeal Obamacare." Guy believes that there are two policy areas people can expect Trump to actually follow through on: trade deals and repealing and replacing Obamacare.

"House Republicans and Senate Republicans earlier this year managed to use the reconciliation process that Democrats used to jam through Obamacare in the first place — which is a budgetary tactic — to get a repeal bill onto President Obama's desk that got rid of and uprooted most, not all of, (but) a lot of Obamacare," Guy informs us.

President Obama vetoed the bill, but the groundwork is now in place for Trump to use the same legislative language to repeal Obamacare. But as Guy points out, "It's the replacement side that's more complicated."
