Trump vows insurance for everybody in replacing Obamacare

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Donald Trump aims to replace Obamacare with a plan that would envisage “insurance for everybody,” he said in an interview with the Washington Post published on Sunday night.

Trump did not give the newspaper specifics about his proposals to replace Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature health insurance law, but said the plan was nearly finished and he was ready to unveil it alongside the leaders of the Republican-controlled Congress. The Republican president-elect takes office on Friday.

“It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes. We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon,” Trump told the Post, adding he was waiting for his nominee for health and human services secretary, Tom Price, to be confirmed.

The plan, he said, would include “lower numbers, much lower deductibles,” without elaborating.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

Trump was also quoted as saying in the interview that he would target pharmaceutical companies over drug pricing and insist they negotiate directly with the Medicare and Medicaid government health plans for the elderly and poor.

U.S. House Republicans won passage on Friday of a measure starting the process of dismantling the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, despite concerns about not having a ready replacement and the potential financial cost of repealing the law.

With the vote, Republicans began delivering on their promise to end Obamacare, also a campaign pledge of Trump, who has called the program a “disaster.”

The law, which expanded health coverage to some 20 million people, has been plagued by increases in insurance premiums and deductibles and by some large insurers leaving the system.

Republicans have called Obamacare federal government overreach and have sought to undermine it in Congress and the courts since it was passed by Democratic majorities in the House and Senate in 2010.

Democrats say Obamacare has allowed growing numbers of Americans to get medical insurance and helped slow the rise in healthcare spending.

About the Treasurer’s Office

The County Treasurer is one of the five elected departmental officials you will find in each of Indiana’s 92 counties. It is the job of the Treasurer to collect all property tax dollars from the property owners in the county. These dollars are monitored and invested by the Treasurer in addition to working closely with the County Auditor to distribute these funds to each of the entities which depends on these funds to operate. The funds collected by the Treasurer fund not only County Government but also local cities and towns (such as Richmond and Hagerstown), local townships (such as New Garden Twp. Or Abington Twp.), and School Systems which are the largest recipients of the property tax dollars next to the County Government.

These dollars fund the maintenance of roads, buildings, social services, law enforcement, the county courts, parks and recreation, and kindergarten through twelfth grade education and services.

The Wayne County Treasurer’s Office has a staff of six including the elected official. The office processes close to 70,000 parcels (pieces of property) worth of tax collection. In addition the collection of Inns Keeper Taxes.

The County Treasurer is also charged with the maintenance of property tax records open to the public for review.

In addition to collection of funds and the maintenance of the records of those collections, the Treasurer invests the money collected. These funds can be invested in local banks in Certificates of Deposit, Money Market Accounts etc. The investment is necessary due to the fact that the funds are technically collected twice each year and therefore need to be making money while they are held in accounts before being used to run the government. Investment of funds allows the county to keep the tax rate down and taxes lower for the taxpayer. In a time of good investment rates a government entity can keep from raising taxes if the income from investment is good.
