In a Trump presidency, Pence said, “we’re going to repeal Obamacare — lock, stock, and barrel.” He then went on to explain what would replace it, using the free market — and without growing the government. The plan includes: dropping the individual mandate to purchase health insurance; purchasing insurance across state lines, like other forms of insurance; a transition period for those receiving Obamacare subsidies; make it easier for Americans to open Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) to pay “first-dollar expenses” for health care; block grants for Medicaid to the states, to encourage innovation in policy; provide data to the public on the cost and quality of care from local providers; protecting coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Trump pledged to ask Congress to convene a special session to repeal and replace Obamacare, warning that premiums in Pennsylvania would increase more than 60%. He warned that health care costs were overwhelming families’ ability to pay their bills, and even their mortgages. He warned that millennials and young people would face an “unfair” situation due to Obamacare, where they “will be totally crushed by these massive health care costs before they even get started on their journey through life.” Trump also hit points from his stump speech, talking about bringing manufacturing jobs back to Pennsylvania, increasing military spending, ending Common Core, expanding school choice, and other priorities.
