      Obamacare will be tweaked to enhance it in my opinion, those of us on private healthcare continue to see our premium go up each yearly renewal...concerning !.,but no fear of losing our coverage...move to Massachusetts where we have our own form of Obamacare that the Feds and Trump can't touch.. Romney Care....it's what Obamacare was designed after and works, and we now also have legalized pot folks...toke it up...lol

      I have private health insurance & since the affordable care act, premiums have gone way up & coverage keeps getting less & less... that being said; 1) I do think people should be able to get insurance which the act does do, and 2) I betcha my premiums don't get cut or coverage improved even if it is repealed (when have we ever seen a big company do this?). Health care needs some help in our country.

      One of the reasons I didn't get radiation treatments for my breast cancer is that my out-of-pocket was estimated to be over $7000 even though we pay like $1000 per month for just the 2 of us (Munchkin gets MA) -- after paying off the hospital & clinic for my ULMS that exceeded $10,000 out-of-pocket, we just couldn't swing it. Heck, each mamo (& I had to have 5 this year) cost me $200 (BCBS-FED paid $38 for each). My BC surgery cost less than the mamo. Something is wrong with this picture.

      We will see what happens. I hope that somehow we as the richest country in the world can find a way for our citizens to get adequate and affordable health insurance. I don't begrudge people paying less & I don't so much mind the premium, but to pay & have almost nothing covered is wrong.

      According to the latest info Obamacare is no scheduled to be repealed. A new health system is being devised to correct all the flaws of Obamacare (I don't have it but several of my friends do)
      can be addressed, improved and made to be more affordable. Some people are having 60+% increases slated for 2017. It also has to be made fair for all. Doctors, insurance companies and patients. When the new plan is formulated it will replace Obamacare as we know it. Also DoreenLouise it was specifically said by Trump today that the new coverage will not allow refusals for pre-existing conditions. I think that now that the election is over we really have to work on our positive attitudes (I include myself on this one) and work together for the common good of our country.
