President Trump said the massive tax bill that Republicans passed on Wednesday will effectively repeal the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
“The individual mandate is being repealed. When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means Obamacare is being repealed,” Trump told reporters before a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday. “So the individual mandate is being repealed. So in this bill, not only do we have massive tax cuts and tax reform, we have essentially repealed Obamacare, and we’ll come up with something that will be much better, whether it’s block grants or whether it’s taking what we have and doing something terrific. But Obamacare has been repealed in this bill.”
