What if Donald Trump had just won the presidency?
With less than three weeks until the November election, many Republicans are starting to worry that the real estate mogul’s unexpected victory might make it difficult to get any real progress on health care, tax reform, and the rest of President Trump’s agenda.
While they’re not wrong to be concerned, a more serious problem could be that the Trump phenomenon could have been prevented.
In a November report by the Congressional Budget Office, which predicts the costs of any Trump presidency would be around $2 trillion, the authors point out that in the current election cycle, there was a much larger deficit than there was under President Obama.
The CBO says the deficit under President Trump would be $3 trillion by 2024, compared with a $1 trillion deficit under Obama.
While the difference is smaller in the short run, the CBO also says that the GOP’s current plan to address the country’s health care problems would have cost $2.5 trillion less than the current law.
If you add it all up, the cost of Trump’s presidency would have been $3.4 trillion more than the CBO estimated.
“In a nutshell, Trump’s win may have been a shock to the system, but the Republican Party could have done much more to fix the country,” says Jason Furman, the White House budget director.
“Instead, it appears that we’ve just put our heads in the sand.”
As the country prepares to elect its next president, Republicans have been trying to come up with ways to address some of Trump.
One idea that’s been floated is to replace Obamacare with a plan that provides a voucher program to people who don’t have health insurance.
While it’s unclear whether this idea would work, some Republicans have taken a harder line against it than the Trump administration.
The House is considering a bill that would create a voucher for families making under $30,000 a year, while the Senate has a bill aimed at reducing the number of people who qualify for Medicaid.
The Trump administration, meanwhile, has proposed eliminating the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion.
It’s also trying to push the country towards a more comprehensive and cost-effective system of health care through the ACA.
A lot of the talk about repealing Obamacare has focused on the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare.
Under the law, people who make too much money can be charged higher premiums, or face penalties for not having insurance, which has resulted in tens of millions of people losing coverage.
But even though the ACA was repealed, the program still exists.
A separate law, called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Care Act or PPACA, is also under consideration by Republicans.
That bill would expand Medicaid, create a public option for insurance plans, and reduce premiums.
But those plans would only cover a fraction of people with health insurance, meaning that a lot of people wouldn’t be able to get coverage at all.
While Republicans have long opposed expanding Medicaid, Trump himself has talked about the program.
In February, he said that it was “something that we could certainly do with some kind of an agreement with the Democrats” to expand the program and said he would “definitely” consider expanding Medicaid if elected.
The health care system in the United States is not perfect, but it’s working quite well for millions of Americans.
And the Republican health care plan is not likely to do much to address this.
The Republican plan also doesn’t address the biggest problem facing the United Sates health care systems: high deductibles.
A recent analysis from the Commonwealth Fund found that deductibles are now nearly four times higher in the U.S. than they were in 2010.
The reason for this is because insurance companies have been forced to lower the cost for people to get health coverage.
As the cost goes up, people have to pay more for insurance.
The idea is that the more people have access to insurance, the less people will be required to pay out of pocket for medical expenses.
This means that people with lower incomes will have to be more generous with their insurance payments.
According to the Commonwealth Foundation, the average cost of an individual’s health insurance premiums has increased by almost 10% over the past decade, from $6,600 in 2010 to $14,600 last year.
That’s because the number and cost of medical procedures have been increasing at a faster pace than the number patients actually need.
This is an issue that the Affordable Healthcare Act has been working to address by introducing new health care reforms, including lowering deductibles and offering cheaper premiums for people with low incomes.
The ACA also has made changes to how insurance companies can treat people with pre-existing conditions.
These changes are aimed at giving people with preexisting conditions the same access to coverage as other people without them, which could allow insurers to provide cheaper, more comprehensive plans.
In the Senate, Republicans are considering two different versions of the GOP health care bill, one that would expand access to Medicare and another that would repeal Obamacare.
One of the two bills is expected to pass the House on its own and the other
