The Senate should repeal Obamacare because it violates a person's rights on whether or not to carry healthcare coverage. Some people do not believe in the corrupt institution of Western medicine and should not be penalized for exercising their rights to free choice. For people that do not visit doctors on a routine basis, paying into a health insurance plan costs more than putting the same amount of money into a savings or investment account in order to pay out of pocket for medical care if the need ever arises.
Republicans are united on wanting to repeal Obamacare. But they're more divided over the timeframe of that repeal, as well as what happens next. One big concern for Republicans here is repealing a law they detest without disrupting the lives of the roughly 20 million people insured because of that law, including 6.4 million Americans insured through ACA exchanges.
Americans definitely want some sort of change — in an NPR-Ipsos poll released Thursday, 38 percent said the ACA should be "strengthened or expanded," and close behind, 31 percent said it should be repealed and replaced. Meanwhile, only 6 percent said it should be "left as-is" (the poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points).
There are plenty of flaws in the Affordable Care Act, flaws which came about after implementation. Senate needs to focus on fixing the act rather than repealing it. The vast majority of Americans have stated that they don't want it repealed, and taking it away will leave many uninsured again, which we simply cannot go back to.
If Republicans can put together an alternative, then it is up to them to repeal parts of Obamacare as they are able to replace it. If they have no plan, and I doubt they do since they've had years and so far have come up with nothing, then I will cheer for them improving on something that has already helped millions.
