In order to make himself feel better and to try to turn around a major failure of his Presidency, President Trump said that when Obamacare “explodes” that “they will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!”

Obamacare is not on the verge of exploding and many of its initiatives have been incredibly successful as millions more now have health insurance. There are pieces of it that need to be fixed. Some of those fixes would come if more states opted into expanding Medicare. Other’s would require more limits on what insurance companies can charge and other policy changes.

But, to reiterate it is not in danger of exploding and Trump as usual just lied about it in an attempt to try to make himself look good after the GOP failed to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare (aka The Affordable Care Act). It didn’t work. – Jan Harrison
