Trump Mentions Dayton’s Obamacare Comment (Again)

During a Monday rally in Louisville, Kentucky President Trump stressed the importance of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, noting even liberal leaders have spoken out against the health care system. Including Minnesota’s own Gov. Dayton.

“It’s time for Democrat leaders in Washington to take responsibility for the disaster they and they alone created. Remember when President Obama said, if you like your plan you can keep your plan; if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor? Nobody brings that stuff up, do they?

Or the Democratic governor of Minnesota who said, ‘The Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable.’”

In October 2016, Dayton admitted changes to the health care program were critical.

“‘The reality is the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable for increasing numbers of people,’ Dayton said, calling on Congress to fix the law to address rising costs and market stability.

‘It’s got some serious blemishes right now and serious deficiencies,’ he said.”

Just over two months ago, Dayton echoed similar sentiments about health care being “out of reach for many” and that he is not opposed to “changes to the state’s health care system.”

It will be interesting to see what cure Minnesota finds to deal with the state’s health care crisis and Dayton’s concerns with the Affordable Care Act. President Trump and Gov. Dayton may not agree on much, okay probably nothing, but at one point overpriced health care united them.
