Will Trump repeal Obamacare in 2017? All signs point to no.
The president campaigned on a pledge of eviscerating Obamacare, boasted at a post-election press conference that Congress would act to repeal and replace the insurance program nearly simultaneously, and then told The Washington Post more than two weeks ago that he would unveil a comprehensive replacement plan that would cover "everybody" within days.
With talk of the Affordable Care Act possibly being replaced by the current administration, conversation surrounding the future of US healthcare is occurring more frequently within some health administration courses.
Sixty-one percent said they knew that some Americans would lose Medicaid and health insurance coverage if the law were repealed with no replacement.
Today in Pueblo, dozens of people showed up at the Union Depot, to protest the repeal of Obamacare as part of the Save My Care Bus Tour and appeal to lawmakers to protect their health.

A joint report between the American Hospital Association and the Federation of American Hospitals reported that a repeal of the ACA without a replacement would create losses of $165 billion in less than a decade for hospitals, and would impact access to health care and staffing levels at hospitals.

Not only have Republicans changed the way they talk about the law, but the timeline for the repeal or fix is slowly sliding further into the future as well.
"Though Republicans were more likely to know that Obamacare is another name for the A.C.A., only 47 percent of them said expanded Medicaid coverage and private insurance subsidies would be eliminated under repeal (compared with 79 percent of Democrats)", the Times column noted. "And I think that before the end of the year I would like to say yes".
All in all, it seems that far too many Americans are convinced an Obamacare repeal will involve getting rid of all the bad stuff and keeping all the good.
Matheson added that ThedaCare's emphasis is more on delivering affordable and quality health care, regardless of someone's ability to pay, while the Affordable Care Act focused on health insurance reform.
In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn't know if they were the same or different (18 percent).
One of the major critiques of Obamacare is its cost. We're going to be putting it in fairly soon. "Once we get a grasp on that concept, we will never be afraid of any political upheaval, because people's illnesses won't stop just because Obamacare has stopped".
