Last quote by Donald J. Trump on Obamacare

We're going to see the bipartisan. And Lamar Alexander is working on it very hard from our side. And if something can happen, that's fine. But I won't do anything to enrich the insurance companies because right now the insurance companies are being enriched. They've been enriched by ObamaCare like nothing anybody has ever seen before.feedback

All quotes by Donald J. Trump on Obamacare

Obamacare is dead. I predicted that a long time ago. We feel we have the votes. As soon as we're finished with taxes, John, we feel we have the votes to get block grants into states, where the states can much better manage this money and much better take care of the people, rather than the federal government.feedback

They have given them, you could almost call it, a payoff. And it's a disgrace. I'm never going to get campaign contributions, I guarantee you that, from the insurance companies. But a lot of other people got them. If you look at the Democrats, take a look at that. We want to take care of poor people; we want to take care of people that need help with health care.feedback

I think we'll have a short-term fix with Republicans and Democrats getting together.feedback

He did not provide details. Last week, the Republican president said he would stop Obamacare's federal subsidy payments to insurers, which are designed to help lower-income people afford health insurance.feedback

And I'm pleased the Democrats have finally responded to my call for them to take responsibility for their Obamacare disaster and work with Republicans to provide much-needed relief to the American people. While I commend the bipartisan work done by Senators Alexander and Murray – and I do commend it – I continue to believe Congress must find a solution to the Obamacare mess instead of providing bailouts to insurance companies. It's a short-term solution. The solution will be for about a year or two years and it will get us over this intermediate hump.feedback

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!feedback

We'll have a long-term fix. Most people know that's going to be a very good form of health insurance.feedback

When the premiums go up, that has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that we had poor health care, delivered poorly, written poorly, approved by the Democrats. It was called Obamacare. But I think we'll have a short-term fix, and then we'll have a long-term fix, and that will take place probably in March or April. We will have a very solid vote. It'll be probably 100 percent Republican, no Democrats, but most people know that's gonna be a very good form of health insurance.feedback

I think the Democrats will be blamed for the mess. This is an Obamacare mess. Obamacare is finished. It's dead. It's gone. It's no longer – don't – you shouldn't even mention it. It's gone. There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore. When the premiums go up, that has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that we had poor health care delivered poorly, written poorly, approved by the Democrats.feedback

With these actions … We are moving toward lower costs and more options in the health care market, and taking crucial steps toward saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare.feedback

Obamacare is finished, it's dead. It's gone. It's no longer … you shouldn't even mention it. It's gone. There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore. This will direct [agencies] to take action to increase competition, increase choice, and increase access to lower-cost, high-quality health-care options. This will cost the United States virtually nothing, and people will have great, great health care.feedback

That's not going to people; that's making insurance companies rich . That money is going to insurance companies to prop up their stock price.feedback

We're taking a little different route than we had hoped because getting Congress – they've forgotten what their pledges were. So we're going a little different route, but you know what, in the end it will be just as effective and maybe it will even be better. In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another. I didn't have a schedule, [but] if I did have a schedule, I would say we are substantially ahead of schedule.feedback

We got weak inspections for no more than a short term and temporary delay in Iran's path to nuclear weapons. The previous administration lifted sanctions just before what would have been total collapse of Iranian regime. Massive subsidy payments to their pet insurance companies has stopped. Dems should call me to fix!feedback

Seven years ago, congressional Democrats broke the American health care system by forcing the Obamacare nightmare onto the American people. And it has been a nightmare.feedback

(Consumers) will have so many options. This will cost the United States government virtually nothing, and people will have great, great healthcare. And when I say people, I mean by the millions and millions.feedback

If we made a temporary deal, I think it would be a great thing for people, but it's really up to him. Obamacare is a disaster. The numbers are out. It's exploding like I said it would. So basically, if we could do a one-year deal or a two-year deal as a temporary measure, you'll have block granting ultimately to the states, which is what the Republicans want. That really is a repeal and replace.feedback

We'll be filing a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare as soon as our secretary is approved and gets into the office.feedback

He can't vote because he's in the hospital. I can't take him out of the hospital. We're only one [vote] off. Maybe two. On health care, we have the votes, and we have great respect for that gentleman. He has to come [to Washington] to vote. In other words, he can't come here and vote. Let me just say, he's in the hospital.feedback

It's going along, and at some point, there will be a repeal and replace.feedback

We will do the block grants. I feel we have the votes. I'm almost certain we have the votes. But with one man in the hospital, we cannot display that we have them. Plus, some people want to go through a process just to make themselves feel better. That's O.K.feedback

It's a little tougher without McCain's vote, but we've got some time. We are going to do it, eventually.feedback

John McCain never had any intention of voting for this Bill, which his Governor loves. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace. Let Arizona down! Alaska had a 200% plus increase in premiums under ObamaCare, worst in the country. Deductibles high, people angry! Lisa M comes through.feedback

I applaud the Senate for continuing to work toward a solution to relieve the disastrous Obamacare burden on the American people. My Administration has consistently worked to enact legislation that repeals and replaces Obamacare, and that can pass the Senate and make it to my desk. As I have continued to say, inaction is not an option, and I sincerely hope that Senators Graham and Cassidy have found a way to address the Obamacare crisis.feedback

Obamacare is imploding. It is a disaster and 2017 will be the worst year yet, by far!feedback

If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies.feedback

Senator Mitch McConnell said I had 'excessive expectations,' but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done? Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don't go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time.feedback

Call everybody. Get them to have the guts to vote to repeal and replace Obamacare – which is a disaster.feedback

Don't give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace...and go to 51 votes (nuke option), get Cross State Lines & more. If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies & why should Congress not be paying what public pays?feedback

[Congress] should've approved healthcare last night, but you can't have everything. Boy oh boy, they've been working on that one for seven years. Can you believe that? The swamp. But we'll get it done. We're going to get it done. I said from the beginning, Let Obamacare implode, and then do it.' I turned out to be right. Let Obamacare implode.feedback

If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!feedback

I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. 3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!feedback

After seven years of 'talking' Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare! If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon! 3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!feedback

If Republicans are going to pass great future legislation in the Senate, they must immediately go to a 51 vote majority, not senseless 60. Even though parts of healthcare could pass at 51, some really good things need 60. So many great future bills & budgets need 60 votes.... 3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!feedback

Obamacare's going to be repealed and replaced. Obamacare is a disaster if you look at what's going on with premiums where they're up 45, 50, 55 percent.feedback

I've been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode.feedback

Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate! ObamaCare is torturing the American People. The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand.feedback

I just want to thank some of the Republican senators who were really fantastic in getting this here, particularly John McCain for making the trip. But I think you're going to have a great healthcare. This is the beginning of the end for the disaster known as Obamacare.feedback

You think that's easy? That's not easy. We're now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this Obamacare nightmare and delivering great health care to the American people. And now tonight, I'm back in the center of American heartland, far away from the Washington swamp, to spend time with thousands of you American patriots.feedback

We passed it without one Democrat vote. And that's a shame, but that's the way it is. And it's very unfortunate. But I want to congratulate American people, because we're going to give you great health care. And we're going to get rid of Obamacare, which should have been, frankly, terminated long ago. It's been a disaster for the American people.feedback

Now they must keep their promise. Any senator who votes against repeal and replace is telling America that they are fine with the Obamacare nightmare, and I predict they will have a lot of problems. It was unbelievable.feedback

We're now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this Obamacare nightmare and delivering great health care for the American people. I'm back in the American heartland far away from the Washington swamp. Yes, our Second Amendment is very, very sound again. That would've been gonzo, it would have been gone, but I never had a doubt. Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt.feedback

It will stabilize collapsing health insurance markets and give Americans far more choice and far more flexibility. There is still time to do the right thing, and for Senate Republicans, this is their chance to keep their promise. They want to forget about the countless Americans they've hurt...by refusing to help us replace Obamacare.feedback

Thank you everyone for being here today. For the past 17 years, Obamacare has wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent, hardworking Americans.feedback

Hopefully he's going to get the votes tomorrow to start our path toward killing this horrible thing known as Obamacare. By the way, you gonna get the votes? He better get 'em. Otherwise, I'll say: Tom, you're fired. You better get Sen. Capito to vote for it. You gotta get the other senators to vote for it. It's time.feedback

If Republicans don't Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand! My son Donald openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!feedback

For the last 7 years Republicans have been united in standing up for Obamacare's victims. Remember 'repeal and replace, repeal and replace' ... We, as a party, must fulfill that solemn promise to the voters of this country to repeal and replace ... But so far Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare. They now have a chance to hopefully, hopefully fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time. The Senate is very close to the votes it needs to pass a replacement.feedback

[Democrats] run out. They say 'Death, death, death.' Well, Obamacare is death. That's the one that's death, and besides that it's failing. So you won't have it anyway.feedback

If Republicans don't Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand!feedback

The Republican senators must step up to the plate and, after seven years, vote to repeal and replace. Next, tax reform and infrastructure. WIN. Obamacare is dead and the Democrats are obstructionists, no ideas or votes, only obstruction. It is solely up to the 52 Republican senators!feedback

Any senator who doesn't vote to open debate is really saying they're okay with Obamacare. We shouldn't leave town until this is complete, until this bill is on my desk and until we all go over to the Oval Office, I'll sign it and we can celebrate with the American people.feedback

We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We'll let Obamacare fail, and then the Democrats are going to come to us.feedback

He wants to remain a senator, doesn't he? Obamacare was a big lie - You can keep your doctor, lie. You can keep your plan, lie. It was a lie, directly from the president.feedback

It's frankly crushing our country. Being OK with Obamacare isn't an option for another reason. Because it's gone. It's failed. It's not going to be around.feedback

The Republicans, frankly, are putting themselves in a very bad position – I tell this to Tom Price all the time–by repealing Obamacare, because people aren't going to see the truly devastating effects of Obamacare.feedback

I say to the Republicans, if you really want to do politically something good, don't do anything. Sit back for a period of two years, because '17 is going to be a disaster–a disaster!–for Obamacare if we don't do something.feedback

If we don't repeal and replace Obamacare, we will destroy American health care forever. It's one of the single most important reasons why we must win on Nov. 8th. We must win.feedback

NO GAMES! HOUSE @GOP MUST DEFUND OBAMACARE! IF THEY DON'T, THEN THEY OWN IT!feedback

I'm sitting in the Oval Office, right next door, pen in hand, waiting to sign something and I'll be waiting. And eventually, we're going to get something done and it's gonna be very good. But Obamacare is a big failure. It has to be changed. We have to go to a plan that works. We have to go to a much less expensive plan in terms of premiums. Something will happen and it will be good. It may not be as quick as we had hoped but it is going to happen.feedback

We hope John McCain gets better very soon, because we miss him. He's a crusty voice in Washington. Plus we need his vote. It's a very, very hard time they're having with the Obamacare situation. The Republican senators are great people, but they have a lot of different states. Some states need this, some states need that. And when it does happen, that will be a big day in America. Believe me. Big day in America.feedback

After all of these years of suffering thru ObamaCare, Republican Senators must come through as they have promised! We are very, very close to ending this health-care nightmare. The only thing more difficult than peace between Israel and the Palestinians is health care.feedback

I don't even want to talk about it because I think it would be very bad. I will be very angry about it and a lot of people will be very upset. But I'm sitting waiting for that bill to come to my desk. I hope that they do it. They've been promising it for years. They've been promising it ever since Obamacare, which is failed. It's a failed experiment. It is totally gone. It's out of business and we have to get this done. Repeal and replace.feedback

Well, I don't even want to talk about it because I think it would be very bad. I will be very angry about it and a lot of people will be very upset. [Obamacare is] out of business and we have to get this done. Repeal and Replace.feedback

SEN. CRUZ: It's crazy to go an August recess without having Obamacare repealed. We should work every day until it is done! I cannot imagine that Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!feedback

For years, even as a 'civilian,' I listened as Republicans pushed the Repeal and Replace of ObamaCare. Now they finally have their chance!feedback

I said no! I feel that repeal and replace have to be together, for, very simply, I think that the Democrats should want to fix Obamacare. They cannot live with it, and they have to go together.feedback

I better find out if he's serious. He hasn't been serious. Obamacare is such a disaster, such a wreck, and he wants to try and save something that's really hurting a lot of people… He'd have to be very, very serious. You know, he's done a lot of talking, bad talking, and he just doesn't seem like a serious person.feedback

I think we're going to get at least very close and I think we're going to get it over the line. Was a great, great feeling in that room yesterday. We'll see what happens, we're working very hard, we have given ourselves a little bit more time to make it perfect. That's what we want to do. I think this has a chance to be a great healthcare at a reasonable cost. People can save a lot of money, we get rid of the mandates, we get rid of so much. We got rid of a lot of the taxes, all of the bad parts of Obamacare are gone, essentially it's a repeal and replace. This will be great for everybody.feedback

This has a chance to be a great health care at a reasonable cost. People can save a lot of money. We get rid of the mandates, we get rid of so much – got rid of a lot of the taxes. All of the bad parts of Obamacare are gone. Essentially, it's a repeal and replace.feedback

I cannot imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!feedback

#Obamacare is dead. Insurance markets are collapsing & millions don't have choices. Americans deserve better.feedback

I don't think they're that far off. Famous last words, right? But I think they're going to get there. We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of ObamaCare.feedback

They're also four good guys, and they're four friends of mine. I think that they'll probably get there. We'll probably have to see. Now it's failed – it's virtually out of business – Obamacare is a disaster, and we're trying to do something in a very short period of time. I've been here for only five months. People are saying, where's the healthcare? Where's the healthcare? Well, I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years. It's a very complicated situation from the standpoint, you do something that's good for one group but bad for another. It's a very, very narrow path.feedback

I've been there for five months. If you remember during the Clinton period they worked for years and years and years and never got health care. But President Obama, his whole administration pushing, pushing for Obamacare, which has now failed.feedback

I think that they'll probably get there. We'll have to see. I think we're going to get there. We have four very good people that - it's not that they're opposed. They would like to get certain changes. And we'll see if we can take care of that. If you look, the Clintons tried to get it and after years and years they couldn't do it. Obamacare was murder for them to get, and now it's failed. Well, I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years.feedback

I am very supportive of the Senate #HealthcareBill. Look forward to making it really special! Remember, ObamaCare is dead. Well, they're also four good guys, four friends of mine, and I think that they'll probably get there. We'll have to see.feedback

ObamaCare is dead and we're putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated. We will hopefully get something done, and it will be something with heart and very meaningful.feedback

I think and I hope, I can't guarantee anything, but I hope we're gonna surprise you with a really good plan. I've been talking about a plan with heart. I said, add some money to it!' A plan with heart. If we went and got the single greatest healthcare plan in the history of the world, we would not get one Democrat vote. Because they're obstructionists. If we came to you and said 'Here's your plan, you're gonna have the greatest plan in history, and you're gonna pay nothing,' they'd vote against it. But ObamaCare is dead.feedback

The Dems want to stop tax cuts, good healthcare and Border Security. Their ObamaCare is dead. Vote now for Karen H.feedback

I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere. ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!feedback

Millions of American families – and I mean millions – continue to suffer from Obamacare while congressional Democrats obstruct our efforts to rescue them. And I'll tell you, that's exactly what's happening. The Democrats have let you down big-league. No matter how good it is, we will get no obstructionist Democrat votes. If it's the greatest healthcare plan ever devised, we will get zero votes by the obstructionists, the Democrats.feedback

2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!feedback

The House has passed a bill and now the Senate is working very, very hard and specifically the folks in this room... to come out with a bill that's going to be a phenomenal bill for the people of our country -- generous, kind, with heart, that's what I'm saying. And that may be adding additional money into it. We'll come out with a real bill, not Obamacare, and the results are going to be fantastic... and everybody's going to be happy.feedback

Because of our actions, money is starting to pour in to NATO. The money is starting to pour in. Other countries are starting to realize that it's time to pay up and they're doing that. Very proud of that fact. The Democrats have no message, not on economics, not on taxes, not on jobs, not on failing #Obamacare. They are only OBSTRUCTIONISTS! They are nothing but OBSTRUCTIONISTS! Want approvals. Just yesterday we learned that one of the largest insurers is pulling out of Ohio. That could mean another 20,000 counties and 19,000 people will have no plan available to them.feedback

The American people are paying much more for much worse coverage. The coverage is horrendous. Obamacare is in a total death spiral and the problems will only get worse if Congress fails to act.feedback

America must have the best, fastest and most reliable infrastructure anywhere in the world, . We will fix it, . We will create the first-class infrastructure our country and our people deserve. Now it's time for the Senate to act and save Americans from this catastrophic event because Obamacare is dead. Obamacare was one of the biggest broken promises in the history of politics. Remember 'you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan?' Didn't work out that way.feedback

Obamacare is in a total death spiral and the problems will only get worse if Congress fails to act. It's only obstruction from the Democrats. The Democrats are destroying healthcare. It's only going to be Republicans or bust. The Democrats are really in our way.feedback

Now it's the Senate's turn to act. Obamacare is in a total death spiral and the problems will only get worse if Congress fails to act.feedback

Obamacare is in a total death spiral. Health care is more about so much more than dollars and cents. It's about real people.feedback

Obamacare is dead. The Democrats are destroying healthcare in this country. We have had no help, we will get no votes no matter what we do. If we gave you the greatest plan in the history of the world, you would have no Democratic votes. It's all going to be Republicans or bust. And the Republicans are working very hard on getting a great healthcare plan. So now it is the Senate's turn to act. And again, I hope they are going to act in a very positive manner. I can tell you the Republican senators are trying very hard. The Democrats are really in our way.feedback

The theft of American prosperity has come to a screeching halt and a new era of American greatness is about to begin. It is time to recapture our legacy as a nation of builders –and to create new lanes of travel, commerce and discovery that will take us into the future. The problems will only get worse if Congress fails to act–Obamacare is dead. Now it's the Senate's turn to act –I hope they're going to act in a very positive manner. The Republican senators are trying hard–the Democrats are really in our way.feedback

Health care is about so much more than dollars and cents. It's about real people. ObamaCare is dead. It's only obstruction from the Democrats. The Democrats are destroying health care in this country. It's all going to be Republicans or bust. And the Republicans are working very, very hard on getting a great health care plan.feedback

Obamacare is in a total death spiral, and the problems will only get worse if Congress fails to act. Obamacare is dead. I've been saying it for a long time. The House of Representative has done it's job, it sent a plan to the Senate, and the Senate is working it over.feedback

The best thing we can do… is let Obamacare explode. Let it be a disaster because we can blame that on the Democrats.feedback

This is a great plan. I actually think it will get even better. This is a repeal and replace of Obamacare. Make no mistake about it. What a great group of people. This has brought the Republican Party together. Yes, premiums will be coming down. Yes, deductibles will be coming down. But very importantly, it's a great plan and ultimately that's what its all about. I went through two years of campaigning and I'm telling you: No matter where I went, people are suffering so badly with the ravages of Obamacare. We're going to get this passed through the Senate, I feel so confident.feedback

If our healthcare plan is approved, you will see real healthcare and premiums will start tumbling down. ObamaCare is in a death spiral!feedback

Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck.feedback
