(and Biden)

A free searchable database containing over 35,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, in timeline form with context, created in May 2017. We began adding quotes from Joe Biden soon after he became the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee on June 5, 2020. Therefore, searches on most topics will return more Trump than Biden quotes, but we are continuing to add quotes from both 2020 presidential election candidates through the November 3, 2020 election.

HEALTHCARE/OBAMACARE(ACA)/PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: [Audrey Strein: “Republicans have failed to come up with an alternative plan to Obamacare, how do you plan to rally the Republicans around a plan, and what would be included in that?”] “Healthcare…I think it’s probably the thing that I’m most disappointed that I haven’t been able to say what a good job we’ve done. I haven’t been able to tell what a great job we’ve done. First of all, I got rid of the individual mandate, which was the worst part of Obamacare.

That’s where you paid a fortune not to pay for horrible and — healthcare and insurance. And it had a tremendous impact. Preexisting conditions, 100 percent, we take care of. But we have many healthcare plans now, where it’s 60 percent, even 65 percent less expensive than Obamacare. It’s better than Obamacare.

And what we really have left is the carcass of Obamacare, or you could call it new healthcare, because, without preexisting, without — without the whole thing with the individual mandate, it’s a whole different ball game. It’s a much different — it’s a much different plan. And what we’d like to do is totally kill it, but come up before we do that with something that’s great.”
