Let's Hope Not: Obama says, ObamaCare will survive … as “Trumpcare”?

Don’t hold your breath, Mr. President. Barack Obama told George Stephanopoulos yesterday on ABC’s This Week that his ObamaCare law will survive his presidency, but that it will just get relabeled for political purposes. Republicans will finally allow some “modifications” and take credit for the system, and that’s fine by him — even if it carries the name of his successor:
President Barack Obama says he believes his signature health care law will survive, noting he has told Republicans over his two terms in office to come up with a different solution if the law doesn’t work.

Asked by ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos whether he thinks the Affordable Care Act will survive, Obama quickly replied, “I think it will.”
“It may be called something else. And as I said, I don’t mind. If in fact the Republicans make some modifications, some of which I may have been seeking previously, but they wouldn’t cooperate because they didn’t want to — make the system work, and relabel it as Trumpcare, I’m fine with that,” he said in an exclusive interview on “This Week” Sunday.
