Of course President Obama does not want to see Twenty Plus MILLION Americans left without any health insurance due to Republicans trying to gut Obamacare. Their plan would be much more expensive in the long run and would not provide the true benefits which should be the overall objective.

"The president traveled across town for a rare meeting on Capitol Hill with Democrats and, according to members of Congress and aides in the room, told them to stand their ground and fight Republicans over every attempt to repeal his signature policy achievements, particularly the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare."

 

“When they try to hurt the progress we've made on quality health coverage, we're going to be engaged. We're going to fight with everything we have,” Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, said. “It's not politics for us, it is the people we represent who are going to be at risk.”

 

"[President Obama] encouraged us to fight, which we already made clear we are going to do anyway," Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, said after the meeting. "President-elect [Donald] Trump made it clear that we would not have people dying in the streets. We are going to hold him to that. I think the question that has to be asked of the Republican Party is: Are you making things worse for the American people, or better?"

The Republicans have no plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, except to throw 95% of the population on the mercy of the insurance industry. And if they succeed in repealing Obamacare, they will gut all safeguards that prevent insurance companies from denying real protection to all but the youngest, strongest and least likely to get sick.
