Wants to Repeal Obamacare: Yes
Replace With: The senator from Florida wants to bring consumer-centered healthcare. He aims to bring affordable, quality health coverage by providing every American with an advanceable, refundable tax credit which they can use to buy insurance.
Rubio wants to specifically repeal the cuts to Medicare Advantage and the medical device tax — which now has been temporarily paused for two years — that are part of the Affordable Care Act.
He also wants to ensure that when the ACA or Obamacare is repealed, people with pre-existing conditions get coverage, similar to what the current law has put in place. Rubio wants to increase innovation in the Medicaid program by giving states a per-capita block grant, that would keep funding for the Medicaid population while freeing states from Washington mandates.
Rubio intends to undertake insurance regulation reform to lower costs.
