The best guess now is that Republicans will repeal Obamacare but with a delayed effective date, perhaps two years (because it will take that long to implement a “replacement”).
Is it possible to be any dumber?
What that will do is give Democrats two years to criticize the action and in my opinion assure that Republicans lose control of Congress.
Such a move will also create chaos for insurers, employers, the health care system and individuals. How can anyone plan or invest for the future if the rules are going to change every few years?
Republicans are misreading Americans and listening to the hard right on a subject it knows nothing about. Go find someone who hates Obamacare and then ask them why. Let me know if you receive a rational answer🤓
Republicans do not understand that health care does not function as other markets do, that people view spending on health care far differently than spending on anything else. If you don’t believe me, bring up the subject of free birth control and you will instantly be labeled a misogynist, trust me on this one.
There is much that needs to be changed with the ACA and much more to be done in health care outside the current law, but disrupting a massive system affecting nearly 325,000,000 people is not the way to go about it.
