    US President-elect Donald Trump promised he would deliver a better healthcare plan at a much lower price after he repealed the so-called Obamacare law, in a speech in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In a speech Trump warned that the damage from Obamacare will be "irreversible," if it isn't repealed as soon as possible.

    "Every day the law known as Obamacare is destabilizing our healthcare … surging premiums and forcing providers out of the market," Trump told supporters at a "Thank You Rally."

    "We are going to act. That is why we are going to repeal and replace Obamacare. We have no choice," Trump told a cheering crowd. "And you are going to get healthcare at a much lower price with a much lower deductible."

    Numerous critics have characterized Obamacare as unsustainable. Republicans have been particularly critical of the law since its enactment in 2011 as responsible for placing undue financial burden on citizens and companies alike without providing choice of healthcare providers.
