Trump vows to have "far better" Obamacare plan

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Trump said on Wednesday if the Supreme Court outlaws Obamacare, his administration will come up with a plan that is "far better." Trump's administration has stepped up its attack on the Obamacare health care law, telling a federal appeals court it agrees with a Texas judge's ruling that the law is unconstitutional and should be struck down.

The Justice Department in a two-sentence letter to the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit filed on Monday said it backed the December ruling by U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor in Fort Worth that found the Affordable Care Act violated the U.S. Constitution because it required people to buy health insurance.

O'Connor ruled on a lawsuit brought by a coalition of 20 Republican-led states including Texas, Alabama and Florida, that said a Trump-backed change to the U.S. tax code made the law unconstitutional.

The 2010 law, seen as the signature domestic achievement of Trump's Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, has been a flash point of American politics since it passed, with Republicans including Trump repeatedly attempting to overturn it.
