“yes it can, defund it, then repeal it.”
Not gonna happen. Some parts of it have too much popular appeal. I think instead we will see an acceleration to single payer, especially as employers become more active at trying to avoid dealing with it at all, ie going with more part time jobs and such. Pandora’s box is already open and I don’t see any way to close it.
If you defund it, repealing it becomes irrelevant.
That way frightened Pubbies can keep their fingerprints off stuff like repealing the free birth control or (ahem)CHILDREN staying on Daddy’s plan till age 26.
Those will just fade away when the whole thing collapses.
That was the whole point of Obamacare - come up with a system that is so bad that the sheeple will beg for socialized medicine instead.
