"Secretary Price and I along with my entire administration and a lot of people in the Senate and a lot of people in the House are committed to repealing and replacing this disastrous law with a health care plan that lowers cost, expands choice and ensures access for everyone."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:
"We're not going to have one size fits all, instead we're going to be working to unleash the power of the private marketplace to let insurerers come in and compete for your business and you'll see rates go down, down, down and you'll see plans go up, up, up. You'll have a lot of choices, you'll have plans that nobody's even thinking of today. They will have plans that today nobody has even thought about. Because the market is going to, of course with millions of people wanting health care, more competition and less regulation will finally bring down the cost of care, and I think it will bring it down very significantly, unfortunately it takes a while to get there, because you have to let that marketplace kick in, and it's going to take a little while to get there but once it does, it's going to be a thing of beauty. I wish it didn't take a year or two years but that's what's going to happen and that's the way it works. But, we're willing to go through that process. Working together we'll get the job done and I have to say this just in closing then I want to hear some of your stories and we'll let the press stay for your stories, but the press is making Obamacare look so good all of a sudden, I'm watching the news, looks so good, they show you these reports about this one gets so much and this one gets so much. First of all it covers very few people and it's imploding and 17 will be the worst year, and I said it once and I'll say it again because Obama is gone, things are going to be very bad this year for the people with Obamacare, they're going to have tremendous increases and the Republicans are frankly putting themselves in a very bad position, I tell this to Tom Price all the time. By repealing Obamacare, because people aren't going to see the truly devastating effects of Obamacare, they're not going to see the devastation in 17 and 18 and 19, it will be gone by then, whether we do it or not, it will be imploded off the map. So the press is making it look so wonderful so that if we end it, everyone's going to say oh remember how great Obamcare used to be, remember how wonderful it used to be. It was so great, it's a little bit like President Obama. When he left people liked him, when he was here people didn't like him so much, that's the way life goes, that's human nature."
