Repealing Obamacare is supposedly the top agenda item in the next Congress, but repeal is not necessarily what it appears.
Congress doesn’t have to pass a repeal law, it only has to cut funding for key parts of the law including Medicaid expansion and federal assistance for ACA marketplace premiums.
Add in tweaking such as eliminating the coverage mandate and the law is effectively dead.
According to the Urban Institute, nearly 30 million Americans will lose or opt out of coverage as a result. Brilliant‼️
What insurance company will continue to offer coverage in this environment?
I don’t know how accurate the UI numbers are, but it’s clear there would be major disruption.
