Senate Moves First on Repeal of Obamacare


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led Senate is poised to take a step forward on dismantling President Barack Obama’s health care law despite anxiety among GOP lawmakers over the lack of an alternative.

Senate approval — expected late Wednesday or early Thursday — and then House passage as early as Friday would trigger committee action to write repeal legislation that could come to a vote next month. A full replacement would follow sometime after that, presuming Republicans can come up with one.

“We must act quickly to bring relief to the American people,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

    After the repeal of the ACA. Do you expect premiums to drop? Do you expect to pay LESS for healthcare? Is that your main goal?

    Do you really think that insurance providers are going to LOWER the prices after having them this high? Or will they just take the extra profits and keep them. If prices don’t drop, is repealing the ACA still a success?

    How do you justify this to people with pre-existing conditions who will no longer be able to get healthcare? Or do you not care about other people that it is only about you and your family?

    Honest questions.
