Obama says Trump has 'not even a hint of a plan' on health care

Politico


President Barack Obama on Thursday mocked Donald Trump's call to repeal Obamacare, dismissing the Republican nominee's stance on the president's signature healthcare law as stubborn obstruction and claiming Trump has "not even a hint of a plan" of what to do afterward.

Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Miami, Obama lit into Republicans, accusing them of fostering needless gridlock in Washington, as he did Wednesday in North Carolina. On Thursday, he went on a riff about Obamacare, hitting congressional Republicans for repeatedly voting to repeal the 2010 law and then poked at Trump, who at a recent press conference called for a special session of Congress to "repeal and replace" it amid premium increases.
