As the Republican nominee, he sharply criticized Obamacare again
"Obamacare is a disaster. You know it, we all know it. It's going up at numbers that nobody’s ever seen, worldwide. It's -- nobody has ever seen numbers like this for health care. It's only getting worse… We have to repeal it and replace it with something absolutely much less expensive. And something that works, where your plan can actually be tailored. We have to get rid of the lines around the state, artificial lines, where we stop insurance companies from coming in and competing." -- Second presidential debate, Oct 9th, 2016
"President Obama said you keep your doctor, keep your plan. The whole thing was a fraud and it doesn't work." -- Second presidential debate, Oct 9th, 2016
After the election, Trump said he likes some provisions of Obamacare, but stopped short of saying how exactly it will change
Lesley Stahl: "When you replace [Obamacare], are you going to make sure that people with pre-conditions are still covered?
Trump: "Yes. Because it happens to be one of the strongest assets...
"We're not going to have, like, a two-day period and we're not going to have a two-year period where there's nothing. It will be repealed and replaced. And we'll know. And it'll be great health care for much less money. So it'll be better health care, much better, for less money. Not a bad combination." -- Interview with Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes, Nov 13th, 2016
