GOP Senators Warming To Repeal Then Replace On ObamaCare

1

Republican senators on Sunday mulled over the possibility of first repealing and then replacing ObamaCare, an idea that the GOP originally rejected but seems to be warming to reluctantly.

President Trump last week floated the idea. He tweeted that Republicans should repeal and then replace ObamaCare at a later date if they are not able to come to a consensus on their bill.

As the Senate majority leadership struggles to obtain enough support to pass healthcare legislation, some senators on Sunday argued it might streamline the process to split the bill into two.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has been a vocal critic of the Senate GOP’s healthcare bill — largely because he does not believe it’s a full repeal of former President Obama’s signature healthcare law — suggested Sunday the ObamaCare repeal and replace bills be separated.

“Let’s do clean repeal like we’ve promised,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“You can have a simultaneous bill or a concurrent bill that they can call replace,” he continued.

Paul said he wants repeal to work.

“And the way you do it is you separate it into two bills and you do it concurrently,” he said. Read more at The Hill.

  1. congress is so chasing its tail there will be a stop and go constantly. It is funny how no matter what Obama wanted they did, for even pass bills no one ever even read. Now the bills are examined to point to see if the punctuation is correct. talk about resistance, I will almost bet they will be chasing their tale all the way to 2018 plus.
