“I’m not a big fan of the ACA, but I think it’s a good deal.
I think there are a lot of people that are going to benefit from the ACA and it’s going to be good for us.”
— Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
“But I also think there’s a lot going on in Washington right now that makes it harder to do it the right way, and I think we need to do a lot better with the IRS and how they handle these tax issues.
So, I think that’s one of the biggest problems with the ACA.
So the ACA will probably not go away.”
— Rep. Mark Sanford, R of South Carolina “I don’t believe in the individual mandate, the mandate.
The mandate is good for the American people.
But I don’t think it has any impact on health care costs.”
— House Speaker Paul Ryan, R Wisconsin “I think the individual tax code is a very good idea, I don, I like the tax code.
It’s an important part of our economic model, but you’ve got to have a healthy economy to be successful, you know.
So I do think that the individual taxes need to be simplified, but not a massive tax increase.
So you can’t just say you’ve done a massive simplification and expect everybody to pay more.”
— Senator Marco Rubio, R Florida “I do think it will have a positive impact.
The individual mandate is a great idea.
The problem is, we need the federal government to make more money for the federal budget, which is not the case right now.
The federal government needs to be spending money to pay for things like education, infrastructure, and infrastructure.
And so I think the overall impact on the economy is going to depend on what the Democrats do.”
— President Donald Trump, interview on “Fox & Friends” broadcast Feb. 10, 2018″ I believe that people who are underinsured or who are going bankrupt, or those people who have had their health insurance canceled, I believe they are going down and they are hurting.
And that’s what’s happening.
And I think people that aren’t going to have health insurance, you have people that can’t afford health insurance and they’re going to get sicker and they’ll die.
So there is a lot to like in the plan.
I just think it doesn’t go far enough.”
Mike Pence, interview “Fox News Sunday” broadcast Jan. 28, 2018He has previously suggested that the mandate is “an absolute no-brainer.”
Asked if the ACA’s taxes are unfair, the President replied: “Absolutely, I mean, it’s just one of those things that, I would say, you look at what we did in Massachusetts.
We took out an entire program of Medicaid and put in an enormous tax increase on people that would have gotten coverage if they had gotten the Medicaid program.
I would think that that’s a fair and just thing to do, to get people into a better position and I’d think that people would be better off if they went back to the Medicaid system.
So it’s very fair to say we’re in a place right now where we have a lot more people with health insurance than we have people who can’t.
We have to look at that.”
Asked how the ACA would affect the health insurance market, Trump said, “You know, I’m not gonna get into specifics on that.
I’ll just tell you that, you saw what happened with the insurance companies.
And they are not going to want to do anything that is going on with health care.
So they’re not going in that direction.”
The administration has repeatedly insisted that the ACA “will” be repealed, arguing that the federal deficit is “far smaller” than previously thought, and that the costs of the new law will eventually “substantially” go away.
But in a Jan. 24 interview with NBC News, President Trump said he has yet to receive a formal estimate from the White House on the costs associated with the law.
Asked whether the administration would try to repeal the law, the president replied, “No, I do not think so.”
Asked about whether the new health care law would be repealed without a replacement plan, the White.
Office of Management and Budget said in a statement that it does not comment on “secretarial deliberations” but that the “agency does expect that the implementation of the health care reform law will be complete by year-end.”
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that the law would increase the federal debt by $8.3 trillion over the next decade.
It has also predicted that the number of uninsured will rise by more than 6 million over that period.
