By repealing Obamacare without a replacement you are leaving the country open to a crisis. Lets be honest here Republicans have had 8 years to create a replacement for obamacare, and I can think of only 4 reasons why they don't have one available.
1) Their plan includes measures that are similar to obamacare or even just fixes to it which could have been implemented in Obama's term. If this was the case however they could easily call for a wholesale replacement now and still take credit with the american public. It would also mean that they are willing to cause americans to suffer (either in withholding fixes to obamacare or withholding its replacement to distance its relations to obamacare) for partisan gains.
2) Republicans themselves are deeply divided on the issue and can't come to an agreement. If this is the case then the delay deadline will cause a crisis similar to the budget problems previously with hardliners failing to negotiate a good compromise.
3) They have a replacement but they know it'll be unpopular or detrimental to a large portion of the american people.
4) They don't plan to replace it at all, or possibly even to return systems that obamacare replaced.
The move to repeal and delay the Obamacare is an irresponsible move from the Republicans. That is pure politics because they are not offering an alternative, they want just want to hit back at the democrats because they know Obamacare care is what will build Obama's legacy. They should not play politics with the health of Americans.
The immediate repeal of Obamacare would be a horrific idea! There are so many people that rely on certain parts of Obamacare to stay alive, and repealing it would be detrimental to them. Look at the people who would be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions if it weren't for Obamacare. Look at the early twenty-somethings that are just starting off on their own and wouldn't have coverage if Obamacare didn't provdie them with the opportunity to be on their parent's policies to age 26. There are so many beneficial things that come with Obamacare, and we can't turn around and go back now.
The president-elect wants to repeal Obamacare, but the republicans have failed to come up with any viable alternatives. What are the millions of uninsured Americans supposed to do for healthcare? They will show up at the emergency rooms anyway and the rest of us will have to pick up the bill.
I am all for the delay and repeal of Obamacare. Since it was implemented, my not-wealthy family has been paying over double premiums for much worse coverage. The insurance companies are rebelling because of this act, and people who are actually paying for insurance are those who are being hurt.
