During Friday’s Weekly Address, President Trump touted the Senate’s healthcare legislation and said that we are “very, very close” to replacing Obamacare.

“My fellow Americans,

Next week, the Senate is going to vote on legislation to save Americans from the Obamacare disaster.

Obamacare has wreaked havoc on American lives, and if we don’t replace it, the calamity will only get worse – and I mean, get worse by a lot.

Here is just one story, representative of so many others.

Carrie Couey and her husband are cattle ranchers.

They have six children and the youngest is autistic.

Her family’s rates under Obamacare skyrocketed, eventually costing the Coueys three times more than their previous plan.

They were dropped from health insurance four times under Obamacare.

When I met with Carrie in March, she told us that her family couldn’t afford the equipment they needed to do the jobs while paying these crushing health insurance premiums.

Americans like Carrie and her family desperately need relief from this terrible, terrible law.

The Democrat politicians who passed Obamacare made many big promises – but they turned out to be lies – absolute, total lies.

They promised Obamacare would reduce premiums by $2,500 dollars.

Instead, premiums have skyrocketed by numbers that nobody can even believe – sometimes, many many thousands of dollars.

They promised that if you liked your plan, you could keep your plan – instead, millions of American families saw their plans cancelled.

They promised Obamacare would offer better options for American families, but in the past two years, half the insurance companies have pulled out and left the individual market – and today, Americans in one-third of all counties have only one insurer to choose from on the exchanges, and they probably, will shortly have no insurers at all.

The Senate health care bill stops the Obamacare disaster, expands choice, and drives down costs – and I want to tell you the Republican Senators are working very hard to get something that’s going to be really, really good – the opposite of the big lie which was Obamacare.

The bill will reduce premiums by 30 percent or more by 2020.
