White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany declined to say on Wednesday which government officials are working on a medical plan. President Donald Trump has promised to announce the plan and recently said it is ready.
At the White House press conference, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins (Kaitlan Collins) pointed out that three senior medical officials of the Trump administration testified before a Senate committee that they were unaware of Trump’s Obamacare plan.
Collins said: “On Capitol Hill today, the three top medical experts in this administration said that they don’t understand any plan that is being made.” “So who is running for the medical plan that will be proposed before the election?”
McKenney replied that White House officials and “multiple stakeholders” including the Domestic Policy Committee are working on the plan.
The press secretary rejected Collins’ follow-up questions and told reporters that if she wanted to find out who was specifically involved in the replacement of the Affordable Care Act, she should come to the White House.
McKenney said: “I won’t tell you what our health care plan is like and who is working on it.” “If you want to know, come to the White House and work.”
McEnany described the private plan as “the president’s vision for the next five years,” thus drawing out a vague list of purposes.
“In general, this will be a very comprehensive strategy. One strategy is that while we are saving health care, the Democrats are trying to withdraw from health care. In this regard, we are making health care better. Inexpensive, thereby providing protection for people with diseases and stopping accidental medical care. Billing, increase transparency, defend the right to keep your doctors and plans, fight lobbyists and special interests, make people healthier, and find treatment Right to disease,” she said.
The president falsely claimed that he had protected Americans dozens of times with pre-existing conditions. In fact, his government is overturning the Obamacare plan in court to protect those Americans. Overturning the law will deprive millions of people of health care.
Although the Republican Party controlled both the Senate and the House of Representatives in 2017 and 2018, despite years of promises to undo and replace Obamacare, it failed.
In the city hall on Tuesday night, the president falsely claimed that his administration had not attempted to abolish the Obamacare plan and that the Democrats planned to remove protections for people with pre-existing diseases.
Trump told voters that his medical plan was “ready” and added that “this is a better plan for you.”
Trump said: “We will not hurt anything related to conditions that already exist.”
The President promised in mid-July that a “comprehensive and complete health care plan” would be announced and signed within two weeks. The White House has promised that the plan will be announced before the November 3 general election.
