Obamacare: Repeal Now, Replace LaterJanuary 2, 2017
In fact, the opposite is true. The voters know that Obamacare itself has caused millions to lose their health coverage, created chaos in the individual insurance market, and reduced access to care. Moreover, they are all too well aware of the fact that the “Affordable Care Act” has rendered their own care less affordable by dramatically increasing their out-of-pocket medical expenses. By electing a GOP President, they have given the party’s congressional leadership one last chance to affect a cure for Obamacare. If the Republicans allow the infection to spread by delaying repeal until they pass a replacement, the voters will give them the boot next year.
The voters want the pain to stop, and they want it to stop now. They will be more patient regarding replacement. According to a new Gallup poll, “More Americans now mention healthcare costs (27%) than mention access (20%) when asked to name the most urgent health problem facing the U.S.” This confirms the findings of other surveys, including a Rasmussen poll conducted before the election that produced the following result: “Most voters still say lowering costs is more important than universal coverage.” These are the voters who have now handed both houses of Congress and the White House to the party whose candidates pledged to repeal Obamacare.
