Repealing Obamacare Requires Deliberate, Thoughtful Process

December 12, 2016

Senior Fellow John R. Graham writes at NCPA's Health blog and The Hill:

The next Congress is likely to repeal Obamacare by "reconciliation," a parliamentary maneuver that allows a simple majority in the U.S. Senate to pass a bill. With fewer than 60 Republican Senators in the next Congress, reconciliation is the only way to move quickly to solve the problems Obamacare created. Otherwise, we could expect Democratic Senators to filibuster a repeal bill.

However, not every jot and tittle of Obamacare can be repealed through reconciliation, which sets up a challenging couple of years (at least) for those who wish to repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered health care.
