Will Obamacare be rebranded as Trumpcare?

I'm struck by how many people in D.C. health care circles are predicting the same outcome for the Obamacare repeal battles: Trump and congressional Republicans will end up with a program that's built on the framework of Obamacare, but modified to reflect Republican principles, like:

  • More choices of health coverage
  • An alternative to the individual mandate
  • More flexibility for states to try different approaches

In other words, the repeal will really be a rebranding of Obamacare, and Republicans will have to sell the hell out of it. Always Be Closing!
