Republicans in Congress have failed to repeal and replace Obamacare — something they have promised the American people seven years — and President Donald Trump has made it clear he wants to take action now before more Americans suffer.
A new study from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services indicated 1,332 counties in the United States — more than a third of the total — will have access to only one health insurer on the Obamacare exchanges.
The CMS also reported that 40 counties out of 3,007 in the country currently don’t have access to any health insurers on the Obamacare exchanges, according to the Free Beacon.
“The map currently shows that nationwide 40 counties are projected to have no issurers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage on the Exchanges in 2018. It’s also projected that 1,332 counties — over 40 percent of counties nationwide — could only have one issuer in 2018,” the CMS reported.
While Democrats are aware that Obamacare is on the verge of imploding, they have chosen to obstruct President Trump rather than help him fix a failing healthcare system plaguing the American people.
“This could represent more than 2.3 million Exchange participants that will only have one choice and may not be able to receive the coverage they need,” the agency said.
At least 27,660 Americans living in counties that the CMS projected will not have any health coverage on the Obamacare marketplaces will have nowhere to turn next year. The CMS estimated that Obamacare insurance premiums increased by an average of 21.6 percent between 2016 and 2017.
After Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted to keep Obamacare last week, President Donald Trump suggested allowing Obamacare implode to force Democrats and Republicans to work together to repeal and replace Obamacare.
3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!

While President Trump has been an avid supporter of letting Obamacare implode and starting with a fresh bill, Republicans and Democrats in Congress have refused to work together to help the American people.
At some point, Republicans in Congress are going to have to honor their commitment to their constituents; it is unclear when that will be.
