The Republican base will be agitating for repeal and does not want to wait to get 60 votes in the Senate to allow for a replacement. McCarthy said that he thinks doing repeal first would increase pressure on Democrats to come to the table and get to 60 votes for a replacement. “You know this is going away five months from now, and you’re going to avoid it?” McCarthy said, speaking of Democrats. He said Democrats would be to blame if no replacement ever ended up materializing because of an inability to get 60 votes in the Senate. But the prospect of repealing ObamaCare with no replacement immediately clear would put a cloud of uncertainty over the 20 million people who have gained coverage from the health law. House GOP leader: Repeal ObamaCare now, replace it later -------------------------------- Throw 20 million off their healthcare. Take away the pre-existing conditions clause, kick kids off their parents insurance, screw over coal miners who depend on Obamacare because of the Black Lung disease they got from "clean coal". Really and deeply fuck over millions hoping many die. AND THEN BLAME IT ON THE DEMOCRATS!! Sounds like a winner.
