Obamacare 2017, Looking Back & What's Next?

Prior to the 2016 election on November 20th, 2016, I had correctly predicted that the year 2017 would NOT bring an end to Obamacare as it stands. Instead, as we near the end of the 2017, the historic Trump tax cut plan, which is expected to be signed by the President as soon as Tuesday or Wednesday of this week, is rumored to include a repeal of the Obamacare (a.k.a. The "Affordable Care Act") mandate that requires people to pay for a federally-approved health care plan, whether they want one or not.
The debacle of Obamacare is about to end. Fortunately, there
will be no program similar to this one dumped on the American
public for at least another 20 years.

It doesn't take a psychic to tell most Americans that the great Trump Tax Cut Plan of 2017 is likely to be signed in to law this week. This new plan is rumored to revoke the mandate that Americans purchase a Federally-approved healthcare plan, or pay a penalty (tax).  long with this historic tax cut, will come an incredible economic renaissance in the United States, especially between the years 2020 and peaking in the years 2023!  However, the unwinding of Obamacare is much more complicated than ink on paper!

As I originally predicted, this complicated puzzle of unwinding Obamacare will take at least another year (2018) of creative negotiations.  No, not with the Democrats, but instead, with the hundreds of thousands of vocal advocates (beneficiaries) of the program who will resist the transition to something new by 2019 and beyond.

Overall, it will take until the year 2021 for something new and far, far better than Obamcare, to emerge.  At that time, even skeptics like myself, may finally, at least consider, a move to a personalized health care plan that is finally...AFFORDABLE!
