The effort to repeal and replace Obamacare stopped earlier this week with the support of Republicans senators. GOP senators rejected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s latest draft bill to replace the majority of Obamacare. Senator McConnell, conceded Monday night that “the effort to repeal and replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful.” Meanwhile, talk is circulating about repealing Obamacare without a replacement.
However, moving forward without a replacement is a major downfall of the Republicans plans. To repeal and replace Obamacare would leave millions without insurance. Moreover, repealing the healthcare system with no plausible replacement would leave marketplaces in turmoil. One suggested solution to passing the bill is revision rather than repeal. Instead of repealing it, some think it wiser to rewrite it in a way that secures all Republican votes. This may seem impossible due to the falling out of certain Republican senators. Lastly, one solution recommends both parties working together. By putting aside their differences for the greater good of American citizens, Republicans and Democrats should collaborate to fix certain flaws in Obamacare.
President Trump states, “Republicans should just repeal failing Obamacare now and work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!” Since his election into office a few months ago, President Trump has made it a priority in his agenda to repeal and replace Obamacare. Republican lawmakers have spent the last several months working to both repeal the law passed under President Barack Obama and pass an overhaul package. To Trump’s dismay, his mission has not gone according to plan. “I’m disappointed, very disappointed. For so many years, I’ve been hearing repeal and replace,” Trump said. The President will be having a lunch at the White House today with Republican Senators concerning healthcare. This will be one of his final pushes to propose a way to remove Obamacare.
