The Republicans should not repeal Obamacare without a strong substitute. It will cause lots of damage and effect millions of lives. If Republicans really want to repeal Obamacare, they should do it slowly and piece by piece.This way people have time to adjust and will cause less of a disturbance to the market.
Obamacare should not be repealed until there is a full replacement plan in place. First, Congress should pass a new healthcare reform bill that provides healthcare access to all Americans. Then, once the new plan is in place, Obamacare can be repealed. There should not be a gap in coverage between someone losing Obamacare coverage until he can find new insurance.
I wish the politicians in the United States would value human life more than they value money. I'm not advocating for insurance companies to disappear, wishing for that is fruitless. I just want everyone to work together and come up with a policy that provides insurance for everyone. The premiums can vary according to individual circumstances but everyone must have insurance. Why is this so hard?
I'm a little surprised anyone thought they really meant they'll replace it with their own plan. Of course the idea had always been to turn the tables back around so healthcare giants could go back to the ways things used to be. Does anyone think they pay lobbyists for nothing? The Republicans do not have a plan to replace Obamacare because they don't care. This has never been a healthcare argument. This is ONLY about the 3.8% tax on wealthy that has funded Obamacare. Republicans hate this tax that is why they have hated and wanted to destroy Obamacare(a heritage think tank plan) since day 1.
Now that they have power they are trying to figure out how to replace Obamacare with ANYTHING minus this tax on wealthy. They are starting to realize it is impossible to put any replacement plan in place without this tax revenue.
