President Mocks GOP For Not Having ‘Even A Hint Of Plan’ On How To Replace Health Law
“You can't just be against something. You've got to be for something," President Obama says in a speech criticizing Republicans for wanting to repeal the health law without offering a way to replace it.
Obama: GOP Doesn't Have 'A Hint' Of Plan To Replace ObamaCare
President Obama on Thursday mocked Republicans, saying they do not even have “a hint” of a plan to replace ObamaCare, despite vowing to repeal it. “They don’t even have a pretense of a plan,” Obama said at a campaign rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Miami, Fla. “They don’t even have a semblance of a plan. There’s not even a hint of a plan.” Obama touted that the law has expanded coverage to 20 million people who did not have it before. (Sullivan, 11/3)
Obama Slams Republicans For Not Having Health Care Alternative
President Obama on Thursday slammed Republicans for advocating for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and for doing so without an alternative health plan. “They want to repeal because, ideologically, they’re opposed to the idea of helping these 20 million people get health insurance,” Obama said in Miami at a Hillary Clinton campaign event. “It’s not like — they don’t even have a pretense of a plan. They don’t even have a semblance of a plan. There’s not even a hint of a plan.” Obama has been defending the Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic policy achievement, in recent weeks, touting the number of people who have gained health insurance coverage under the law.

Obama Says Trump Has 'Not Even A Hint Of A Plan' On Health Care
President Barack Obama today mocked Donald Trump’s call to repeal Obamacare, dismissing the Republican nominee’s stance on the president’s signature health care law as stubborn obstruction and claiming Trump has “not even a hint of a plan” of what to do afterward. Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Miami, Obama lit into Republicans, accusing them of fostering needless gridlock in Washington, as he did Wednesday in North Carolina. Today, he went on a riff about Obamacare, hitting congressional Republicans for repeatedly voting to repeal the 2010 law and then poked at Trump, who at a recent press conference called for a special session of Congress to “repeal and replace” it amid premium increases.
