The genius of Donald Trump’s nonexistent plan to replace Obamacare.

"Has Donald Trump spent months secretly crafting a top-to-bottom transformation of our broken health system that will patch up America’s scrapes and bruises and straighten the nation’s teeth? All signs point to no. A week ago, Trump told the Washington Post that he was putting the finishing touches on a new health reform plan that would guarantee “insurance for everybody.” Alas, he offered no details other than to say that his plan would offer “much lower deductibles” and that it would be released very soon. In a detailed account of intra-Republican wrangling over the future of Obamacare, Yuval Levin reports that “the conservative health-care universe, including some people on Trump’s own team, quickly concluded that the separate administration plan he described was entirely a figment of Trump’s imagination.”



Considering it doesn’t exist, Trump’s imaginary health care proposal has accomplished a great deal. For one, it has tempered the enthusiasm of congressional Republicans for unraveling Obamacare too quickly. It’s reminded them that the road to replacing Obamacare is fraught with peril for the GOP, and that “insurance for everybody” is a message that appeals not just to Democrats but to a growing number of Republicans."
