OBAMACARE (ACA)/PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: “Preexisting conditions, I’m the king of taking care of people with preexisting conditions. If you look at the mandate, the individual mandate, that was the worst part of Obamacare. I got rid of it. That really means you got rid of Obamacare. The truest sense, we did terminate Obamacare, because we got rid of the individual mandate, which is a terrible thing for people.
It was so unfair to people. So we got rid of the worst part of Obamacare. And without it, you don’t have Obamacare, but we’ve run the carcass of Obamacare very well, and that the people are doing better than they would have done. I had a choice to make, do I run it badly and blame Obama, or do I run it as well as it could be run?”
