Chris Wallace: The Real Winner Of 'Obamacare Lite' Is President Obama


'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace notes that the survival of key aspects of Obamacare inside Trump's health reform plan makes President Obama the real winner of Obamacare repeal:

MICHAEL NEEDHAM, CEO, HERITAGE ACTION FOR AMERICA: This bill keeps the architecture of Obamacare in place and that's why it needs to be improved and it needs to be improved a lot if we're going to make it great.

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Juan, I want to pick up on that because while some liberals -- and we just heard Nancy Pelosi complaining bitterly -- there are others who are claiming victory and exactly on Michael's point, they say that this bill maintains the basic structure, architecture of Obamacare, in the sense that there will continue to be government regulations of the health insurance industry in the fact that even after it is scaled-back, that Medicaid will -- there will actually be more people under Medicaid than were before Obamacare. So they say, in effect, that Obama has won.

JUAN WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS POLITICAL ANALYST: Well, I think Obama has -- president -- former President Obama has won in the terms that you now have Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives saying, the government has an important role to play here.
