Donald Trump Clarifies Anderson Cooper Remarks on Healthcare Mandate

Donald Trump told Anderson Cooper last night he was in favor of the healthcare mandate.

Trump joined Cooper at a CNN town hall event on Thursday night.

On Friday Donald Trump clarified his remarks:


Via Free Republic:
I was asked about healthcare by Anderson Cooper & have been consistent- I will repeal all of #ObamaCare, including the mandate, period.

I was referring to a backstop for pre-existing conditions. I will eliminate the law, in its entirety, & replace it w/ something much better.

I will replace it with private plans, health savings accounts, & allow purchasing across state lines. Maximum choice & freedom for consumer.

I’m self-funding and I am going to take care of the people – not the special interests and insurance companies like the other candidates.
