President Donald Trump is vowing to have a plan "far better than Obamacare" if the Supreme Court eventually sides with his administration and tosses out the Affordable Care Act.
"It’s a disaster for our people," Trump said of the healthcare law, according to Politico. "If the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is out, we will have a plan that is far better than Obamacare."
Trump gave no indication what the plan could look like, Politico noted.
The Justice Department is asking an appeals court to affirm a lower court’s ruling that the healthcare law is unconstitutional. The administration had initially argued that the courts should only strike down portions of the law.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. noted on Wednesday: "The Republicans here in the Senate tried over and over and over again to deal with repeal and replace. They couldn't – because they have no replacement (for Obamacare)."
