Donald Trump said that as soon as his secretary for Health and Human Services is in office, his administration will have a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare "essentially simultaneously." But Trump offered few details about what exactly that plan would entail. Obamacare  "You are going to be very, very proud of what we put forth," Trump said Wednesday during his press conference.
