    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.

    --------------------------------

    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.

    The Republicans will shore it up. You watch. They won't repeal it. They'll just make it an even tastier gift to the insurance industry.

    And how many of those 20 million supposedly counted as being on Obiecare are really on Medicaid? Come on Deanie, be honest and tell us with a link.

    The "20 million people who have gained coverage from the health law" have until the end of their contract to obtain other insurance. They will have all that time to pressure their congress critters to agree to a bill that has a shot of passing and being signed. You LOST. get used to it.

    They could actually do both by allowing competition across state lines.
