To the Editor:

Why are Republicans wasting millions of dollars trying to replace “Obamacare”?   It is really very simple to replace Obamacare. Just give Medicare to everyone and require that all medicine prices are controlled by the government. President Trump claims he is great at making deals — OK, show us. The system is already there, so no need to waste millions of dollars and time trying to figure out something else. It also is better than Obamacare. All that is needed is some Medicaid for those who cannot afford to pay the 20 percent after Medicare.

Voila! You are finished and everyone is happy.

Wow, such a simple solution. I wonder why Obama didn't think of that instead of wasting all that time and money creating a bill so large the Democrats couldn't (and didn't) read it before they voted it into law.
