Skip to comments.Trump, Hill GOP fret about fallout from repealing Obamacare so quickly
Posted on 01/10/2017 10:38:05 PM PST by Innovative
After years of promising to repeal the Affordable Care Act, a growing number of Republicans are balking at the prospect of doing so quickly without a firm plan to replace it.
As the Senate begins voting Wednesday on a path to eliminate the landmark health-care bill, some Republicans are worried about the political fallout and uncertainty of starting to roll back Obamacare without knowing how the process will end.

People can hardly wait to have them dismantle Obamacare.
One of the reasons people voted for Trump, and he is keeping his promises,
At this point I fail to see the value in even bothering to mock WaPo.
We know everything even slightly political in those pages is going to be a pack of lies motivated by malice.
It’s not even worth posting their stuff anymore, they have nothing to say that would be a good use of anyone’s time to read.
SJWs always lie
SJWs always project
SJWs always double-down.
Reality means nothing to the SJWs. Actual true facts have no place in any SJW stance/position/demand/statement.
SJWs are pathological and can not be salvaged.
Not a credible news source.
The problem is that many people still do read the WP and comments at FR help put them in context, rather than leave their lies unchallenged.
this is more leftist BullSheet!
Trump and the GOP (and many D’s, actually) have no problem at ALL with repealing Ocare. it is not working, nobody knows how to make it work, it is far far far too expensive for most people who might try it, anyway, and it is KILLING AMERICAN JOBS!
the biggest way any Congresscritters can get a lot more public support in a hurry is to repeal Ocare ... and leave any further health care subsidies to the states if they determine there’s a need for any. It is a local or state matter anyway. (it is NOT constitutional at the federal level and everyone including Judge Roberts knows it.)
How about we figure out how to post a very very short, daily or weekly summary of all the commie/islamoNazi/socialist propaganda and fake news and BS (meaning, mostly, anything published in the NYT or the WashPost or LATimes).
why should we all have to read this BS in such great length, we know what it is anyway.....it only serves to aggrevate many of us, anyway. just my humble opinion that the WashPost and NYT and LATimes have proven themselves to be Big Lie Propaganda and agitprop mills, and little more.
Of course they are balking. There is too much corruption in it to let it go away easily.
My wife's went from $160 a month to $720 a month, my daughter's was $120 a month and lept to $475 a month.
That's right, $1870 a month for insurance for three people, with a $5,000 deductible (per individual) or $10,000 deductible (for the family) per year.
That's a month's rent, a reasonable car payment, utilities all rolled up into something which contributes nothing to my family each month.
This is a beast that can't be killed fast enough in my opinion.
Most republicans I know are afraid of their own shadows. That’s why they prefer to handle things behind closed doors and smoky back rooms.
Almost every one of them is a back stabbing coward.
Another WaPo #fakenews article that it took three leftist morons to write. LOL.
“... a growing number of Republicans are balking at the prospect of doing so quickly ...”
Name them or be silent.
If 0Care is not repealed quickly, it never will be.
Fake news to create a narrative. Again.
Sometime they’ll figure out that critical mass was achieved before Trump’s win. They still think they run things.....
And “news” with “Trump” and “fret” in the title is FAKE.
From what I gathered by listening to Rush yesterday there could be some element of truth here, in that some Republicans want to stall on doing anything. Their motive is they do not want to deal with the back lash and how it will affect the next election. Which has been the primary reason they never touched obamacare anyway.
All the more reason for term limits. If a congress critter knows they will not be reelected text term, then they would have fewer worries regarding doing what’s right.
Idiots....REPEAL on JAN. 20TH!! And PASS the REPLACEMENT!
Since they don't have a replacement how about repeal and just leave it at that? They can't help but make things as bad or worse with a replacement.
