On the first day of the new Congress, Republican US Senator Mike Enzi introduced a resolution allowing for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, according to a statement from Enzi’s office reported by Reuters.
The move by the Senate’s budget committee chairman on the first day of the new Congress set in motion the Republican majority’s promise to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, as its first major legislative item.
Republicans have said the repeal process could take months and that developing replacement health insurance plans could take years. More than 20 million previously uninsured Americans gained health coverage through Obamacare.
This is crazy. Taking health insurance away from 20,000,000 plus people and nothing to replace it with. Let’s take away health benefits away from congressional members and see them complain and let them know that sometime in the future we will replace it let’s see maybe nothing!!!!!
Get real. Just because the Dems or Repub make a statement, does not mean it’s going to happen or did in fact happen, ie 20 million getting health care that did not already have it in some manner. It’s not just going to be taken away, it is going to be replaced in an organized manner, so no one is left without.
